Recently I was asked about appropriate attire for Court. Specifically, I was asked about the propriety of wearing a piercing in Court.
“Should I take my nose ring out?”
While dress codes in Court are not what they used to be, you still should dress appropriately for Court.
What is proper attire?
- conservative/church attire
- slacks/dress pants
- button-down/collared shirts
- appropriate dresses
What is not proper?
- sleeveless shirts
- short dresses/skirts
- gaudy jewelry
…so, should you take your nose ring out?
“Yes, yes you should.”
