Dress Codes during Your Resort Stays - What to Wear
September 29, 2022 | BY ROSSI DIGITAL

It pays to be aware of certain resort dress codes when packing for a vacation. While you might think it's unnecessary since you won't be staying at the place for a long time, what you wear can make or break your trip. Of course, it's crucial to check the weather and what kind of place you'll be staying, but there are some specific things to remember when packing for a resort vacation.

For instance, what if the resort you'll be staying at mentions something about "resort casual attire" or "elegant casual"? This will make you confused and unprepared as you haven't brought anything that falls under these categories.

But no worries, because here's a guide for the following resort wear codes, so you know what to pack for your trip.

Resort Casual

If the resort you're going to gives off an informal atmosphere, resort casual wear would be a perfect choice. This means that you can wear whatever you would wear on a day at the beach or pool, but just make sure it's comfortable and doesn't look too formal or too casual.

For men, this means wearing shorts, a T-shirt, and sandals. This means wearing a sundress or skirt with a T-shirt and sandals for women. Always bring a hat or sunglasses to protect you from the sun and sand in the resort.

Resort Evening Wear

Let's face it. Some resorts strictly enforce less casual wear during the evening because of the upscale nature of many of these resorts. So if you're looking for something more formal, you'll want to pack a dress or skirt and a blazer or jacket.

For men, dressier shorts or pants with a polo or collared shirts will do the work. Meanwhile, women should don a fitted dress or skirt and a blazer or jacket. A cardigan or wrap is great if you want something to wear while exploring the resort.

Elegant Casual

This resort dress code is also referred to as "casual elegance." While you might think this resort wear is not that formal, you would be wrong. This is a very upscale casual dress code; you should dress accordingly.

You should still pack a dress or skirt and a blazer or jacket, but you can also choose to wear a more comfortable dress or skirt and a blazer or jacket. You can also choose to bring sandals or flip-flops if you'd like, especially if you're spending a lot of time outdoors.

Formal Resort Attire

It's tricky to identify formal resort wear because there is no specific dress code for formal resort wear. However, most people agree that you should dress respectfully and appropriately for the occasion. 

For example, if you're attending a formal dinner, you should wear a dress or skirt and a blazer or jacket. If you're showing up at a formal event, such as a golf tournament, you should wear a suit or dress formally.

Final Thoughts

Resorts can be very unforgiving when it comes to dress codes. You should always consult the resort's policies before arriving and be aware that certain dress restrictions may be in place, even if they are not explicitly stated.

For example, some resorts may prohibit tank tops or revealing clothing in general, while others may insist that women wear skirts or dresses at all times. Regardless of the resort's policy, always be respectful and follow it to the letter.
