  • You should be in pressed slacks, and a pressed top, closed toe shoes, and neat hair/make up. You do not need a suit jacket...but you don't want to show up looking like you work at Target either. Khaki's and a top can be tricky that way. Imagine that you would need to iron all the pieces you plan to wear, then you are at the right place in the "business casual" range. Technically it used to be a way for companies to get twenty somethings to come and work for it meant really relaxed...but as the dot commers and other twenty something techies age...a little formality is coming back to work wear, and business casual is almost business professional again. Good luck, and enjoy your training sessions!
