Army White Uniform—Female

General guidelines

a. The skirt is worn no longer than 1 inch above, or 2 inches below the crease in the back of the knee. The black all-weather coat is authorized for wear with this uniform. Personnel may wear white gloves with the basic uniform. Females may carry the white leather handbag during duty or after duty hours; they may carry the white fabric handbag only after duty hours, however. White pumps and sheer stockings are the authorized footwear for this uniform. After duty hours, personnel may wear white fabric pumps with this uniform.
b. Soldiers who possess the old version of the Army white coat will wear one branch and one U.S. insignia on the collar. Those who possess the new version of the Army white coat will wear their insignia as they do on the Army green coat (see paras 28–4 and 28–12).
