Dress Expectations

At MYMUN, all delegates are expected to wear business-professional attire. While in actual UN sessions delegates are allowed to come in their national costume or military uniform, this is not allowed in the MUN programme. Please be aware that the dress code will be enforced, and that students who do not meet it will be asked to leave the conference until they do. We strongly recommend that directors go over the dress code early with their delegations in order to give them plenty of time to make any changes necessary to their planned wardrobe, and possibly even require to see ahead of time what your students intend to wear, like an MUN fashion show!

Male delegates are expected to wear long-sleeve shirts, a tie, jacket, and trousers. Shirts should always be tucked in, buttoned up and sleeves rolled down. Delegates should wear dress shoes, preferably black or brown. All clothing must be conservative and appropriate (no tight, short, transparent or otherwise revealing clothing), and neutral solid colors are preferred (tan/brown, darker blue or green/olive, grey, black), though light colors are also acceptable (light blue, light pink, lavender). No denim or “jeans” material of any kind. Long hair should be pulled back from the face, and jewelry should be minimal and understated.

Female delegates are expected to wear a dress (knee-length) or trousers/skirt (knee-length) with a dress shirt. Avoid high slits in skirts and dresses. Delegates should wear business-appropriate dress shoes, preferably black or brown, and no more than a 2.5 inch heel. All clothing must be conservative and appropriate (no tight, short, transparent or otherwise revealing clothing), and neutral solid colors are preferred (tan/brown, darker blue or green/olive, grey, black), though light colors are also acceptable (light blue, light pink, lavender). No denim or “jeans” material of any kind. Long hair should be pulled back from the face, and jewelry should be minimal and understated.
