China: Good Manners: Loose Clothes Are Considered Casual


I saw another woman teacher once in clothes I quite admired, a Thailand tunic with matching Thai trousers.  My Chinese friend discouraged me from buying similar clothes at a street stall.
Too casual, she advised.
Why?  I see a lot of trouser suits on women.
Because the clothes are loose on the body. You should look more formal at work.
This was interesting to me, and explained why so many Chinese women wore very tight suits, form fitting jackets and pencil skirts.
Many hot climates such as India and the Middle Eastern countries have body swirling cottons, silks, and linens even as formal attire.
Not so in South China.
