Nah clothing isn’t different

Wait and see what is typical. In normal times, business casual is the answer 99% of the time, but most teams are in casual wear during COVID outside client updates.

I would say business casual and business suits just in case. I brought two suits from J.Crew just in case and blouses from Target, J.crew, Banana republic, Macy’s, Nordstrom. I have tattoos so I need long sleeves. You can get away with a few blouses, dress pants and business dresses. I wouldn’t go crazy.
