Mensagem:  Hey Laura
well, I`ll try to help you

esporte fino = casual clothes or street clothes, like when it`s casual day in companies - you can work wearing pants, a shirt and shoes, but not sweatpants, a sweatshirt ,shorts or running shoes, cause they`re sports clothes

Gala = dress clothes, or evening dress. In the phrases, dress doesn`t mean the clothes women wear, but the ones men and women do

Social = formal clothes, social clothes, like the suit I have to put on whenever I attend a hearing

see ya,helcio
