Western Business Attire is simply the clothing that you should wear to all Model UN conferences and, obviously, for all business related events. It is the formal type of clothing that you would wear to a wedding.
Ideally, men should wear:
- A dress shirt
- Dress trousers
- Dress socks
- Dress shoes
- A tie (or bow tie)
- A suit coat (optional)
Essentially, you want to look like Neil Patrick Harris.
Since there are a couple options, WBA for women isn’t as clear as it is for men. Women can wear:
- A professional dress (should be at least knee length and not strapless)
- A blouse-skirt combination with an optional suit jacket (skirt should be just above the knee)
- A super sweet pant suit (blouse, trousers, and optional tie)
- Appropriate heels or dress flats
Pro tip for men and women: Wear color. Whether it’s a brightly colored blazer, shirt, or tie, a splash of color can help you stand out from the rest of the delegates (who didn’t read this post).
