Shoes, shirt, and something that covers your bottom. You won't be approved or denied the visa based on your attire.

 

Most people suggest "business casual" or similar. Nothing disrespectful on your clothes, nothing ripped/torn, etc.

Some people suggest to dress like you are going to a job interview. Seems overkill to me, but to each their own. Again, it won't impact eligibility for the visa either way. Some people are just more comfortable being well dressed for it. Other get more nervous/anxious when they need to dress up.

 

Edit: As for me, I wore a polo shirt and khakis at my now-wife's K-1 interview. Some people were dressed up well more (full suit), and others just had a regular t-shirt and jeans. Most people wore fairly similar attire, so I didn't feel out of place really.

I have my cr1 interview Friday morning and although I'm not a man lol I still wondered what to wear. I'm kinda going smart casual. A clean and tidy appearance gives a good first impression.

Unless you come in looking homeless and make them worry about public charge, anything relatively decent is fine. I probably wouldn't dress like i'm going to the beach and definitely keep away from controversial slogans on t-shirts but apart from that... we went to our IV interviews in jeans (obviously neat, but still, jeans). They approve the case on the facts, not whether you are wearing jeans or smart trousers.

 

Re business casual, where we live that IS jeans...
