Is this appropriate for a court appearance?

I have a court hearing in March and I just want to know if this would be appropriate to wear.. I HATE dressy clothes and I only have to be in the courtroom for 15 minutes.

If you find something cute that'd be more appropriate, feel free to please post it here. I've never had to go to court so I'm lost as far as wardrobe goes.

It depends what kind of court. Is it traffic court or something like that? If so, yeah it's fine. Most people don't dress up for stuff like that.

If it's criminal court or family court, I would wear something different.

If its got any "sprakle" to it, you may want to rethink that....


It is cute, but not court worthy.

Dress pants and a nice shirt would be better.

no basic white shirt with dark colored slacks work best. You don't want to stand out or not be taken seriously

Too flashy for court. Muted colors and conservative would be better.

Fuck no.  Buisness attire is usually required.  A pair of black slacks, button down blouse & black heels or flats, & not sequined stripper heels either.

No. That's not appropriate clothing for court. You may hate dressy clothes, but judges hate people who come in dressed down. They feel its disrespecting their courtroom. If you look appropriate you're more likely to get favorable sentencing/treatment.
