What to Wear

How to Dress

The key to professional attire is finding clothing that achieves a proper fit, a polished look, and a professional attitude. The basis rule to follow is, dress for the job you want.

  • Clothes should not be overly large, small, tight, or baggy.
  • Do not wear low cut tops, short skirts or dresses, or anything that shows a lot of skin.
  • Avoid distracting jewelry.
  • Clothes should be clean and wrinkle-free.
  • Dress shirts should be a neutral color that compliments the suit.
  • Clothes should not have writing/words.
