No dress code, but there are dress norms

Keep in mind, your clothing is a part of atmosphere of your work place. Try to keep comfortable place for both customers and other staffs.

How to catch a sense of valid clothing in work places

Fashion sense and taste in clothes depend on individuals. If you don't know what to wear to your work place, try these things.

Check what other staffs are wearing during work time
We recommend you to visit the actual work place in advance or after a job interview to check what other staffs are wearing during work time.

Ask the interviewer
You can ask what you should wear while you are working to the interviewer. The interviewer will give you helpful advice for your question.

Simple clothes will be the best choice on the first working day
If you are not sure what to wear on the first working day, choose quiet and clean clothes. Do not wear too flashy clothes.

What would not recommend as first-day wear

You won't be allowed to wear
・Worn out pre-ripped jeans
・Clothes with so much exposure
・Short pants
・Sweat pants and shirt
・Sandals or flip-flaps

Summary

"No dress code" means you can wear your own clothes instead of business suits or school uniform. But it does not mean "Any clothing will be allowed". Check what other staffs are wearing in the work place in advance.
