For men, if you are told to wear formal suit, pick dark colour tone combined with lighter colour such as navy blue and grey. Use a tie with slightly bright colour to give “popped-out” colour to your outfit. IF it is semi-formal suit, wear basic colour shirt combined with crewnecks and chinos pants.
For women, wear pastel colour outfit to give fresh and elegant impression. Avoid to wear mini skirt or body-fit dress. Wear fabric pants or midi skirt to look decent. Put on a blazer to add some professional impression.

On the first day at work, wear simple but elegant outfit. Too many accessories will make you look too much among other people. Use one or two accessories which can support your look without looking too much, such as earrings. For hijabi women, you can wear simple hijab model or hijab scarf with good combination of patterns, then for men, just wear watch or another different style of shoes are already make you look different!
