We are all very excited that the conference is almost here, and, because of that, some of you may already be wondering what you are gonna be wearing while delivering an awesome speech. Don’t worry, this post was written with the purpose of, hopefully, offering you a little guidance.
Dressing professionally and appropriately is an important aspect of MINIONU preparation. Just like being polite and having proper manners, dressing appropriately is an important way to show respect for the nation you are representing, for your fellow delegates and for the event. Depending on the delegation and the resources one has available, delegates may attend the event with the national dress of the country they are representing; however, most delegates choose to wear a standard western business attire. Standard business attire serves as customary dress for workplaces. It usually entails wearing a suit, which is consists of trousers, a matching jacket, a button-down dress shirt, and a tie. Conservative dress shoes and socks are also important. Skirts and dresses may also be worn as long as they fall to a decent length. The main thing to remember is to always insure that your appearance is tidy and put-together, and, most importantly, that you are feeling professional and confident!
Here are some tips to keep in mind when picking your outfits for the days of the conference:
|Suits||A suit always looks professional. Be sure to keep suits clean and wrinkle-free. You want it to be just the right size, not too big but also not constricting your ability to move.||A suit always looks professional. Be sure to keep suits clean and wrinkle-free.

|Tops||No t-shirts. A blouse, sweater or button-down shirt of any kind is appropriate. It looks even more professional if you put a blazer over it.
