Business dress code in Turkey does not differ significantly from other areas of the world. As meetings, especially initial meetings, are seen as serious affairs it is probably safest for men to wear a smart suit with a tie and for women to wear a smart business suit with either skirt or trousers.
The weather in Turkey can obviously be extremely hot and in these circumstances, it is acceptable to wear lightweight clothing with an open neck shirt. However, it can also be extremely cold in Turkey in the winter and it is therefore advisable to check on what are the likely climatic conditions will be and pack accordingly.
