ATTIRE AT RECEPTIONS, PRESENTIONS, AND INFORMATION SESSIONS
the attire, you should want to present yourself in the most
conservative, professional manner.
Both women and men should always
wear a suit. Consider black, dark navies and grays. Men should wear
shirts that are nicely starched and not taken right out of the dryer. If
they are white, they should be white, not yellowish. Men’s ties should
be seen not heard.
Women should avoid wearing
several pieces of jewelry, especially dangling, chunky sorts. As far as
both sexes are concerned, they should definitely avoid trying to look
“particularly glamorous or sexy”. Wear clothing accessories and jewelry
that make you look confident.
NICE OR BUSINESS CASUAL
Men should avoid: khaki pants,
“loud print” shirts. Consider dark-colored slacks with a nice Oxford
shirt with muted colors and a conservative matching tie. If the weather
is cold, pull on a nice solid color sweater or a cardigan with the tie
tucked inside the sweater. Another option is wearing dark slacks, solid
or bold line shirt, and a nice dark colored sports coat or blazer.
Women should consider wearing
business skirts with appropriate blouses, such as silks, polyester, or
rayons with attractive prints. Larger pieces of jewelry are acceptable
for nice casual. Flats or small heels and hose are appropriate.
It is acceptable for men to wear nice khaki, navy, or some other basic
color slacks. “Camp” shirts or Collard shirts long or short sleeve would
be appropriate. Stay away from blue jeans, denim, and sweat suit
material. Shirts should be crisp and colorful but not “Neon-looking”! NO
Appropriate attire for women might be an attractive blouse, skirt or
slacks, blouse, and nice belt, flats, and always hose.
PLEASE CONSIDER THE LOCATION FOR CASUAL DRESS.
IF IN DOUBT, CHECK WITH THE CSO.
