standard uniform
Explanation:
Vestimenta is basically either an article of clothing or a robe or cloak to cover the body. So in practicality in this case at parliament, it probably means a standard jacket or vest, but I'm hypothesizing.

Explanation:
Note that this is not the same as wearing a uniform! See images on Google for "uniform dress code." You can add 'business' to distinguish from student uniform dress codes.
