A pair of trousers, decent shoes and a nice shirt (tie optional but wouldn't hurt if you're in an office all day) would sound about right until you find out what the acceptable work attire is in your company.

Try to stick to natural fabrics where possible especially during the summer months.

Save the flip flops and sandals for the weekends though and avoid wearing them to dinner in posh hotels
