Switzerland : Dress and Costumes

back to travel tips

The Swiss can be remarkably casual in their dress, save for the highest-ranking management. Also, people have been known to sport tasteless ties (lilac or gray) with watercolor suits (green or burgundy are a common sight among middle management). Several banks recently banned white socks with business suits in their dress codes.In upper management, corporate finance and private banks, dark suits are the rule as in many countries. In most other industries you will encounter countless types of attire. Lower-ranking employees often wear casual clothes and jeans are quite common. The Swiss may be admired for a few things, but clothing is probably not among them.Most striking is a style sometimes described as the “Swiss German style,” which the author of this book recently had the privilege of observing on a live specimen: greenish suit, pink shirt, brown shoes, a superb tie covered with bright flowers—the kind you see on shower curtains—and, the finishing touch, a pair of glasses with heavy blue plastic frames.On weekends you might bump into people wearing the full folkloric attire of their region. Chances are that they are on their way to a music celebration somewhere in the mountains. Women often carry flower baskets and men popular musical instruments like the Alp Horn, which can be heard from mountain to mountain.
