If you are invited to a wedding, one thing you must not do is be prettier or better dressed than the bride and groom. At weddings, the dress code dressy casual is often common. You should look chic but still be dressed casually. There is some overlap between Dressy Casual and Formal Casual.

For the ladies, a long dress or skirt with blouse and summer shoes are suitable. For men, long pants with a jacket and a polo shirt is acceptable. In any case, closed shoes must be worn. A tie is not necessary.

The word "casual" translates as "casual, easygoing, informal". This is how it should be taken on your dream vacation: casual, easygoing, comfortable.

But casual also has a no-go: swimwear, bare tops or bikinis. What is perfectly fine at any beach or pool bar should be refrained from in restaurants.

On the other hand, short-sleeved shirts and shorts for men are perfectly acceptable for the casual dress code.

Especially in an upscale hotel in the tropics, you should choose clothes that are light and airy, but definitely not baggy. Smart also means that you don't come across as "overdressed".
