I have ridden in a schooling show, 100% properly turned out, and competed against someone in pink half chaps. In reality, we both probably stood out, since we were at both ends of the "dress" charts.
A hunt coat and shirt would not be inappropriate, but neither would a dark grey/navy or black polo/long sleeve shirt and a vest, or a dark sweater over a light button down shirt.
In the end, it does come down to budget, and what you can afford, since you would have to go out and purchase these items.
Personally, I wouldn't wear half chaps with a hunt jacket...but that's me.
