To my interview, I just wore black slacks and a sweater.

To the oath ceremony, I wore a skirt and blouse.

As long as you look nice, there's really no dress code. I probably wouldn't wear jeans, although some people at the oath ceremony did.

Good luck at the interview!!!

There is no dress code as raymaga said.
But you want to be looked as professional and nice. whistling.gif
USCIS adjudicator should not have prejudice based on your look, but sometimes they do because they are human. innocent.gif
Consider interview/oath as your job interview or something like that.

Don't recall anything for the interview, oath ceremony says this:

"The naturalization ceremony is
a solemn and meaningful event.
Please dress in proper attire to
respect the dignity of this event
(please no jeans, shorts, or flip
flops)."

And perhaps a good idea to follow for your interview, wife looked and acted very professional, she passed, hope you do too.

As everyone already had said, you might as well dressed in slacks and a long sleeve short. Better to be safe than sorry right? =P

What about wearing Superman suit or Wonderwoman suit ? whistling.gif
Wonderwoman suit has stars and stipes, so it may be considered as cheating for Interview? devil.gif

BOYCOTT UPS. 

If it is important for your package to get where it needs to be, use any other carrier.  UPS is incapable of delivering your package on time.  For your own peace of mind and well being, DO NOT USE UPS.
