Dress Code

Most questions that we receive concerning clothing have been about what to bring and how much to bring. We have heard comments such as, “I brought too much,” or “the instructions were not clear enough.” Therefore, we have expanded the information regarding our dress code and what clothing to bring to the conference in the hope that you will understand exactly how we apply our dress code and that you will know exactly what you should bring.

  • Dress attire for conference will be as follows: YLC Conference t-shirt, full-length jeans or Khaki pants (No holes, rips etc. and they must be worn above the hips), belt (solid colors with absolutely NO Designs), closed toed shoes (No sandals or shower clogs are permitted). You will be provided a YLC Conference T-Shirt at time of registration. The color of your T-shirt will be the same as the other students assigned to your team. The only exception to the prescribed dress code is our dinner dress requirements which are described in the section below. Social hour is the only time the conference t-shirt or dress attire is not required. (Please keep social hour attire appropriate and in good taste). We suggest you bring good walking shoes and light rain gear; also, our sleeping and classroom facilities are kept very cool so we recommend you bring a light sweater, jacket or similar lightweight attire. Neither backpacks nor purses are allowed during conference  meeting hours.
  • We dress for dinner! That means dressing up – a minimum of a coat and/or shirt with tie or uniforms for men and similar appropriate BUSINESS attire or uniforms for our ladies. Uniforms are always acceptable dinner-hour dress for both men and women. Ladies, please keep strap width at 2” minimum (No spaghetti strap or strapless attire unless covered). THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS!

“Our dress code is that which is accepted by BUSINESS ladies and gentlemen everywhere. Dress for the occasion, neat, clean and combed — with manners.


Your cooperation will insure that we maintain an air of dignified informality.
