36. What should I wear to court?

You should dress in your “Sunday best” when appearing in court. Men should wear a jacket and tie. Women should wear a dress or pant-suit. Your outfit should show your respect for the courtroom, and that you are taking the case seriously. You will want to present your best image to the court. A pair of slacks and a button-up shirt or blouse will reflect much better than cut-off shorts and flip-flops. In fact, some courts will not allow you to enter the courtroom if you are wearing shorts or a hat. Avoid any athletic attire, exercise outfits, or flip-flops.
