Dress Code

Delegates are expected to wear professional attire at all conference sessions. As tastes may vary, the following guidelines have been provided to alleviate confusion regarding the expectation of professional dress.



  • Casual business attire, such as slacks and a blouse or a button-down shirt.
  • More formal attire, such as suits and ties, is encouraged.
  • Skirts and dresses (knee length, three fingers above the knee).
  • Use dark-straight colors.
  • Formal shoes to match your outfit. Make sure to use socks that match your outfit.



  • Clothing more casual than the aforementioned standard, such as blue jeans, shorts, and T-shirts.
  • Revealing outfits are inappropriate for diplomatic work, such as low-cut blouses, halters, and extremely short skirts.
  • Baggy pants or other articles of clothing that reveal undergarments.
  • Outfits intended to distract or disrupt the work of committee sessions.
  • Athletic wear, such as warm-up suits and sweatpants.
  • Hats and caps are not permissible in committee sessions.

Committee Staff may ask delegates to return to committee with the appropriate
dress if these guidelines are not met. The Secretary-General or her/his
representative will have the final authority on matters of dress.
