Dress Tips for the Conference

Student Conference Dress Code for Men and Women

The dress code for conference attendance is slightly different than what you might wear for a job interview or other venues that require business professional attire. When you think conferences, think business casual. Here are some general guidelines to consider for business casual dress.

  • Pants: Khaki pants, neatly pressed, and a pressed long-sleeved, buttoned solid shirt are safe business casual for both men and women.
  • Shirt: Polo shirts are an appropriate choice if you know the environment will be quite casual, outdoors, or in a very hot location.
  • Shoes/Belt: Be sure to wear a belt and shoes that are in good condition. Athletic shoes and flip flops are not acceptable.

Specifics for Men's Business Casual

  • Shirts: Long-sleeved shirts are considered dressier than short-sleeved and are appropriate even in summer. Choosing white or light blue solid, or conservative stripes is your safest bet. Polo shirts (tucked in, of course) are acceptable in more casual situations.
  • Shoes: Shoes that are in good condition should be worn. No sandals, athletic shoes or hiking boots.

Specifics for Women's Business Casual

  • Pants/Skirts: Women can wear casual pants or skirts. For the most businesslike appearance, pants should be tailored. A knee-length skirt is preferable although a long skirt may be considered.
  • Shirt/Sweaters/Jackets: In addition to tailored shirts or blouses, tailored knit sweaters and sweater sets are appropriate business casual choices for women. A tailored jacket may also be worn.
  • Shoes and Hosiery: Closed-toe shoes, sandals which are neither extremely dressy nor extremely casual are appropriate. Regardless of what is in style, avoid extreme. Make certain you can walk comfortably in your shoes. Hosiery should be considered with skirts.
