I will be starting a job at a Medical clinic (no scrubs). What is appropriate.
Since they don’t want scrubs, they’ll probably want something professional. A good plan on day one is to choose black slacks, and a collared blouse (with sleeves) or a sweater that’s not too revealing. Also, wear shoes that don’t show your pedicure, and you may want to wear your hair up (pony tail) if it’s longer.
Day one is not the day to wear cute sandals and a cut-out top. A suit or dress is probably overkill. But those may be fine once you go through orientation and find out what their work dress-code requirements are. If you’re still not sure, look at their website for any photos of workers and try to match that look. Or, you can call the front office, let them know you’re excited about your first day, and ask their advice. They’ll be impressed that you care enough to ask.
Good luck with your new job.

I usually err on the side of over-dressed, rather than under-dressed for my first day of work.
