When visiting the Wake County courthouse for a North Carolina Felony or North Carolina Misdemeanor, it can be quite the intimidating experience. One of the first things that you should be considering when attending a court date should be “What is appropriate to wear?” Being well dressed is only going to be beneficial when appearing in front of a judge. Some smaller counties the way you dress is going to be crucial for your case. However, in Wake County the dress code is a bit less strict. If you are hesitant about what your wearing or unsure on if it is appropriate or modest enough, the answer is likely no.
● Business casual attire
● Polo shirt
● Button up dress shirt
● Dress shoes
● Tucked in shirt
Showing up in nice attire showcases to the judge that you made an effort to look presentable. As well as the fact that you are taking the charge seriously.
● Dress suit/business casual attire
● Conservative Dress Shoes
Modesty is key, as it shows respect to the Judge and District Attorney who will make decisions about your case.
● No flip flops
● No jeans with holes
● No T-Shirts
● No hats
● No Low cut skirts
● No open toed shoes
● Don’t over accessorize (no excessive jewelry)
● No bare midriff
