Resort Attire: Everything you need to know about vacation dress code

Resort wear or vacation wear is becoming a common term used for clothes one wears when one is on a holiday. Resort wear as style has significantly increased in popularity due to increase in vacation trips and easy flights connecting all cities and countries. Although resort wear is associated with swimsuit cover-ups, big straw hats, tote bags and flip-flops it is much more. You see a great vacation wardrobe can make or break your trip (Selfie culture and the rise of vacation photos being shared on social media).
Resort attire can include casual, yet very stylish dresses in fabrics that require less care and ironing. You may also want to check the weather of your holiday destination before packing. Resort wear can be different from your regular wardrobe as it may include bright colors, fun prints and flowy or comfortable silhouettes. During the day easy casual dresses with minimal fuss can be worn while during the evening time more formal dresses including evening gowns and dinner jackets can be worn. Let us break down the meaning of different Resort Dress codes for your convenience-

Resort Casual

Resort casual style is what you would wear at any informal event. It can be similar to what you’d find at popular breakfast/brunch or lunch spots. You can easily wear a knee length dress, swimsuit cover-up, jeans, capris, and shorts with a t-shirt or polo. Sneakers, flats, and sandals, are all acceptable as well. You can even wear flip flops with this relaxed dress code!


Elegant Casual

Elegant casual is can be similar to something you would wear to an upscale restaurant. With this dress code, men can wear a long-sleeve dress shirt with slacks and dress shoes—no shorts,  t-shirts, or sandals. Women can wear skirts or pants with a nice blouse or a dress. Both women and men should opt for dressier shoes, though dress sandals can also be appropriate.


Resort Evening Wear

At some resorts, you will need to dress less casual during the evening when going to dinner or a show. Men could plan to wear dressier shorts, pants or nice jeans with a polo or other collared shirt. Collarless T-shirts, sleeveless shirts, shorts, are not typically acceptable. Women can choose a casual dress or pair a blouse with a nice pair of jeans, slacks, or a skirt. For shoes, both men and women can choose from elegant sandals or close-toed shoes and avoid wearing flip flops.

Formal Resort Attire

Often chosen for weddings and other special events, formal dress codes are more similar to what you would wear to a cocktail party. While a suit is a good idea for men, a nice button-up shirt with a dinner jacket and slacks can be acceptable. Dress shoes are recommended over tennis shoes or dress sandals. Women have a few more options to choose from. A number of styles are acceptable, including full-length dresses and gowns to a nice pantsuit or skirt with a stylish blouse. All outfits should be paired with a nice pair of flats or heels.
