At my first Hunter show, my trainer had me wear the exact same thing as the Hunter circuit riders. Essentially, if you're going to play in Hunter-land, you have to dress the part no matter what.
You'll need a hunt coat, show shirt, knee-patch riding pants (in tan), a belt, and long boots. Oh, and a helmet of course. Hunterland is very strict about attire (one of the many reasons I dislike showing Hunters, but no sense in me going on about that). Schooling shows aren't always lenient about attire, either. If you know the venue and have seen the type of stuff that is worn to their shows, just stick to that. I went to a schooling show at my old barn's place, and I was able to get away with not wearing the hunt coat simply because I knew they wouldn't enforce the dress code, because I had ridden at that barn before. People showed up to that show in tee shirts, though I still had a show shirt on.
All in all, I'd play it safe and get the whole attire. You will need a belt.
Hope this helps! :)
