Griffin: If you’re dressed provocatively in court, you’re conveying something about yourself instead of about your client, whom you’re

Bogner: Skirts and dresses that hit midthigh are OK, provided that they aren’t tight. It’s safer to pair them with opaque tights.
Baumgartner: Ask yourself, “If I were going to a nightclub after work, would I have to change anything?” If the answer is no, you’re dressed inappropriately and probably wearing too much makeup.
