Formal Resort/Beach Wear: Decoding the Dress Code

Before I attended a morning outdoor wedding I decided to do some dress code research to see what would be best to wear. While I didn’t settle on this dress code for the occasion. I still thought I’d share my research and explain what this dress code means.

Formal resort/beach wear is a dress code best suited for outdoor events such as a nice restaurant on a summer night, beach/summer weddings, or an evening at a resort. Women can wear flowy maxi dresses or jumpsuits in summery colors and prints. Keep in mind that you’ll want to be both stylish and comfortable in whatever weather you’re in.
