Lindsay Lohan wore a buttoned-up blue suit with a navy turtleneck for a court appearance on March 29, 2012. The look is polished, professional, and perfectly appropriate for facing the judge. Unfortunately, this is the exception, not the rule, when it comes to Lohan's court looks. {JB Lacroix/WireImage}

In July of 2010, Lohan sported navy trousers, a black shirt, and black blazer for a day in court. While not a suit, the look is neat and covered up, thank god. {Splash News}

Lohan forgot her jacket in April of 2011, but her tucked-in blouse and black trousers would be more at home in an office than at a movie premiere, which is always a good rule of thumb when deciding what to wear to a probation violation hearing. {Clint Brewer/Splash News}

Lohan looked a bit more fashion-forward than necessary for a probation update hearing on January 17, 2012 in high-waisted trousers and a sky blue twinset. But again, we aren't seeing any cleavage or much skin, so it's a good day in Lohan court fashionland. {Toby Canham/Getty Images}

In July of 2010, Lohan returned to court for a probation revocation hearing wearing a black top, black pants, and a cream sweater. The look is just dowdy enough to earn itself two thumbs up in the court appropriateness department. {Michael Buckner/Getty Images}

In October of 2009, Lohan's clean updo says that she means business, but her studded white blazer is a little too party-friendly for the courtroom. {Jean Baptiste Lacroix/WireImage}

The demure skirt Lohan opted for on September 24, 2010 is right on track, but her top (is that a T-shirt?) is too sheer for comfort. And girl, where are your stockings? I know it's Beverly Hills, but bare legs are a no-no in court. {Toby Canham/Getty Images}

While we approve of Lohan's basic black pants, the rocker jacket she chose for a case review conference on July 21, 2011 is questionable. And what is under that shiny, metallic excuse for a coat? Probably something inappropriate. {Chris Pizzello/AP Photo}

The polka dot dress Lohan chose in November of 2011 is perfectly adorable, but not so perfect for court. Her legs are bare once again, as are her arms. The first rule of courthouse attire etiquette is to cover your skin's entire surface area from the neck down. {Clint Brewer/Splash News}

Yay! It's a suit! Oh no, wait a second, something is terribly wrong here. The blouse Lohan chose for a mandatory court appearance in May, 2010, seems to be missing its buttons. {London Entertainment/Splash}

All Lohan needs to do to make this lovely A-line dress court appropriate is add a sweater and some tights. Unfortunately, the way she wore it in October of 2011 is no good, as she is simply showing too much skin. {JB Lacroix/WireImage}

Once again, Lohan is just a sweater away from an appropriate look. But on January 30, 2013 she left her outerwear at home. Unfortunately, this black shift dress reveals the tattoo on her right arm — a major courtroom faux pas. {JB Lacroix/WireImage}

Lindsay, next time apply the Botox to your pants instead of your face. The sad, beige, linen trousers Lohan wore to a probation hearing on December 14, 2011 are in desperate need of a pressing. While the pieces to this outfit are subdued, the overall look is too sloppy for court. {Toby Canham/Getty Images}

Are we going to the mall, or to a legal hearing? Lohan looks ready for shopping in the sailor trousers (which may or may not be denim) and jersey top she wore in April, 2011. Really, would it kill you to slap a jacket on top? {Toby Canham/Getty Images}

Lohan finally found her tights at the bottom of her drawer (good girl), but the skin-tight dress with a metallic sheen she chose in March of 2011 is not court-approved. This outfit just screams, "I haven't been home in days and still smell vaguely of whiskey." Clint Brewer/Splash News (100311)

For her most recent court date, on March 18, 2013, Lohan chose an outfit that appeared, at first glance, to be sound. But when you look a little closer, the questions start popping up. Is that a skirt? Are her pants sheer? Does the V-shaped cutout in her top reveal cleavage? If the answer to any of these is "yes," than this look is a no go. {Deano / Splash News}

Jeans have no place in the courtroom. Ever. But, that being said, we'd take the denim ensemble (and its blazer) she sported on October 22, 2010 over the revealing looks to follow. {Toby Canham/Getty Images}

Ah, the infamous white dress. The clingy $600 Kimberly Ovitz mini-dress Lohan wore in February 2011 sold out after she debuted the look, but we can bet Lohan's the only one who wore it to court. {Splash News}

Is that a tank top? And jeans? Why bother wearing clothes at all? Lohan's look in September 2010 is almost as bad as it gets. Almost... {Clint Brewer/Splash News}

No. Lohan opted for shorts in September, 2010. I'm surprised they even let her inside the Santa Monica courthouse. {Jean Baptiste Lacroix/WireImage}

And then there was the time (in May 2010) Lohan wore pajamas to a probation meeting. Because nothing says, "I'm a responsible adult" like sweatpants. {Johnstone/Raishbrook/Splash News}
