I agree that business casual should be fine... personally, I would wear a tie, because I wear a tie to anything serious, but I don't think it's needed.

You can see what the two interviewees are wearing in this sample video from USCIS (first the man in the blue shirt then the woman in the grey jacket): http://www.uscis.gov/citizenship/teachers/educational-products/uscis-naturalization-interview-and-test-video

I wore jeans, sneakers, and sweater. Unless you have a rubber chicken on your head, or a pink tutu, or something that's out of the ordinary, I wouldn't worry. They really don't give a C$#P what you're wearing.
