In order to ensure an environment conducive to the goals of the conference, all delegates must adhere to an appropriate and respectful dress code, as mandated by the Delegate Code of Conduct. Western Business Attire is required of all participants while committees are in session. NAIMUN staffers reserve the right, at their discretion, to request that delegates violating the dress code change their clothes. (Please note, however, that female staffers will address female dress code violations, and male staffers will address male dress code violations.)
For both ladies and gentlemen, a suit always looks professional and is recommended, but not required, as the best option. Hats are not allowed.
The dress code includes, but is not limited to:
- NO t-shirts. A blouse, sweater, or button-down shirt is appropriate. Necklines should not be overly revealing. Spaghetti straps are not allowed.
- Dresses are allowed so long as they comprise Western Business Attire and are no more than two inches above the knee.
- NO jeans or shorts. Slacks and suit pants are appropriate. Skirts should be worn with stockings or pantyhose and may be no more than two inches above the knee. Leggings are not permitted.
- NO flip-flops, casual sandals, or sneakers. NO Ugg (or comparable) boots.
- NO t-shirts. A collared or button-down shirt and tie is required.
- NO jeans or shorts. Slacks or suit pants are appropriate.
- NO sneakers or flip-flops. Loafers or other dress shoes are appropriate.
Western Business Attire is not required at out-of-committee events, including Hilltop Madness and the Delegate Dance. While these events are casual, delegates are encouraged to maintain appropriate attire. If a NAIMUN staffer deems an outfit unacceptable, (s)he reserves the right to ask a delegate to change his or her clothes.
Delegates will be able to purchase NAIMUN t-shirts throughout the weekend, which may be worn to the last committee session on Sunday morning and to Closing Ceremonies, provided that the shirt is paired with Western Business Attire bottoms, such as slacks. (No jeans, etc.)
