Following is sample language to use in your organization's dress code:
While work attire is casual at our organization, all employees should maintain appropriate standards of neat and professional dress and grooming. The key point in determining what is appropriate work attire is the use of common sense and good judgment, applying a dress practice that our organization deems conducive to our work environment. If you question the appropriateness of a certain piece attire, it probably isn't appropriate.
