An elegant resort dress code is a formal dress code required by some resorts, which includes a white collar shirt or a button down with a pair of matching tropical trousers or slacks. This code is used when casual wear, such as shorts, sneakers, flip-flops and jeans, are inappropriate to wear.
Another option for an elegant resort dress code is a linen or seersucker suit. Women can wear a pantsuit or a cocktail dress, as well as a nice top paired with Capri pants. Elegant resort dress code usually adheres to an upscale setting and differs from other dress codes, such as resort evening, where jeans can be worn, or resort casual, where sneakers, tennis shoes and T-shirts are an acceptable form of attire.
