Residents in the Cayman Islands are generally a fashionably casual bunch. But during the work-week men who are business professionals may wear long trousers, long sleeved collared shirts and a tie. Jackets are very rarely worn, even in board meetings but are compulsory for lawyers attending court proceedings. You may see women in Cayman wearing a smart skirt, dress or slacks with a blouse at the office - all very appropriate for a professional setting.
For social occasions, Cayman residents love to dress up and casual attire will be quite smart. Women dress in the same way they would in America and Europe. Away from the workplace, the dress is casual – shopping and running errands are done in whatever is comfortable.
In the Cayman Islands shorts, T-shirts and sundresses are acceptable but only tourists wear swimwear away from the beach. Some business establishments such as supermarkets, banks and some restaurants may require patrons to wear t-shirts (or an appropriate swimsuit cover) and shoes.
