  • Clothing should provide enough coverage to cover midriff, thighs, cleavage, and lower back


  • T-shirts
  • Caps
  • Flip-flops
  • Sweats
  • Clothing with logos (however, some companies allow or even encourage items with their corporate logo)
  • Jeans (depending on the company’s policy)
  • Revealing clothing
  • Clothing that does not fit well
