I’m a Belgian and I live there so I know it well. Belgium is a very modern country, we even have some very famous fashion designers here. You can wear everything here, just keep it decent. Don’t go running around half-naked, but shorts, short skirts, tops — nobody will look surprised or trouble you. We generally miss the weather to go running around in summer clothes. So, if you come to Belgium (even during the summer) always bring something for rain, for sun, for cold, for every type of weather actually. You can only be sure it won’t freeze during summer, and it won’t be hot during winter, but for the rest, every type of weather is possible at any time.

In Belgium, everyone wears tight pants and black is very common.
