This seems to be a good example of subtle differences between ser and estár. Is formal a personality characteristic or a temporary condition.

Yes, when you want to imply formal as a characteristic or manners, then you say "ser formal". However, if you want to use formal as in dressing, then you simply use the verb "vestir"

I tried "No tienes que estar tan formal" which was counted incorrect.

Why the que? I put "tú no tienes ser tan formal" and it was marked wrong.
