With summer here at last, people are generally embracing the warmer weather with typical summer clothes that are appropriate for outdoor activities such as hiking or taking a stroll down the boardwalk. When appearing in court, it is important to show a certain level of respect in both etiquette and attire in the Court room.
In fact, you could be sent home if you do not wear proper attire. A brief list of “high risk” items include flip flops, blue jeans, t-shirts/tank tops, shorts, short skirts, or sneakers.
We encourage a level of attire that demonstrates respect for the Court. It is important to make a good impression on the Court in order for your case to proceed.
For women, we suggest:
- Dress pants, a skirt, or a dress; skirts/dresses should reach at least your fingertips
- A sweater or a blouse that does not bare midriff or cleavage is best
- Conservative heels or polished flats are best for footwear
- A pair of dress pants
- Collared shirt (such as a button up dress shirt or polo shirt)
- Dress shoes
The above clothing items will make the best impression. Makeup, perfume, hair style, and facial hair should also be conservative; you should look clean cut and dressed in a manner that will give the Court the best impression of you so that your case may proceed; with these tips, you will be on to winning your case in no time!
