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