You need to wear something hip....
trust me, the last thing you want to do during OCI is stand out because of what you are wearing.
navy/charcoal 2 button suit, black oxford cap toe shoes, white/light blue shirt (no french cuff), solid color tie (preferably red/blue). make sure everything fits properly, and there is your uniform. basically, you want to dress like the president.

personally i prefer light blue shirts over white, but white is certainly the "safer" bet. for whatever reason, i feel like the navy/charcoal suit with a light blue dress shirt is very "chicago" whereas the same suit with a white shirt is more "new york." dunno how i got that in my head, but that's partially how i ended up doing all of my interviews with chicago firms in a light blue shirt.
as far as shirts go, white/light blue are your only options. you can mix in red, green, yellow, etc. with your tie, but again i would go with a solid color with a bit of texture (not grenadine, of course, but more texture than the kind of ties anderson cooper wears). pink/lime green might be too loud, i wouldn't wear anything like that. again, it's worth pointing out that "loud" should not come close to describing your outfit. if you are thinking something might be too loud, it probably is.
