Paraguayan day-to-day wear is generally very casual. But keep in mind that the better you dress, the better you are treated — especially in restaurants or malls or when asking for directions or assistance. Jeans and a fitted t-shirt will work, but be careful not to wear low-cut necklines or revealing clothing because this will attract unwanted attention, stares, and even catcalls from social deviants and, even old Paraguayan men. Also it is important to note that in the city shorts are not common for women. Blondes also attract a lot of attention here. Much of the dress code depends on the season and fashion is strongly influenced by neighboring Argentina and somewhat from Brazil. During the spring and summer, clothing is generally white, light colors and lightweight skirts. Fall and winter styles have become Bohemian. For men and even girls, soccer jerseys are acceptable at any time, provided that you’re not rooting for the “wrong” team. For example, during a Paraguay/Argentina game, Do not wear the Argentine colors of light blue and white. Good luck and enjoy your visit.
