11 Second ……The trick is to look conservative and professional. Wear an appropriate length skirt, avoid tight skirts and mini-skirts (women). Let quality of your suit, followed by the strength of your words impress your potential employer. 11 continue next page--

12 Third …… Blouses – A cotton or silk blouse in a neutral color with a simple collar is fine. Do not wear a sleeve-less blouse, just in case you have to take off your jacket. Most conservative offices do not allow sleeveless blouses as proper dress attire. For men wear long-sleeve, press shirt with a collar and tie excluding loud colors. Make sure your blouse is for the correct setting. Your blouse should fit comfortably, and not appear to be tight, wrinkled or distracting. Fourth …… Wear a Suit – Although women have come a long way in the world of work, skirt suits are still preferred Men and women suits should be in neutral color and nicely press 12 continue next page--

13 black, brown, burgundy or navy. Fifth …… Shoes – Pumps with 1 ½ - inch heel are standard. Choose a color that compliments your suit and handbag – black, brown, burgundy or navy. Sixth…… A – A classic 34- inch square silk scarf that compliments your suit in color and pattern. Less is better, less color and less patterns. Keep it simple. Be sure to have your shoes polished and shined and that your heels are in tact. Wear leather shoes, avoid suede and light fabrics - they attract dust. Avoid open-toe shoes, hi boots, stiletto heels and white shoes. 13 continue next page--

16 Accessories How to accessorize your outfit Any jewelry or accessories should be simple and conservative; avoid extreme styles and color and ensure you stick to real gold or silver; pearls are also suitable. Ensure earrings do not extend much beyond the lobe and wear only one ring per hand, only one earring per ear and no tongue, nose or eyebrow piercings. Men should not wear earrings. If you carry a briefcase then keep your handbag small and neat; avoid anything that looks like a beach tote or party bag. Leather is the best option for both but fine woven or fiber is acceptable. An alternative to a briefcase is a leather portfolio. 16

Clothing that reveals too much cleavage, your back, your chest, your feet, your stomach or your underwear is not appropriate for a place of business, even in a business casual setting. 3. Combine some of your existing business wardrobe with casual attire; for example, try wearing a button-down shirt with khakis and loafers. 4.All men's shirts must have sleeves and collars. Any clothing that has words, terms, or pictures that may be offensive to other employees is unacceptable. 19 continue next page--
