Discover the rules of the dress code: shoes perfect for any occasion at the hotel

Going on vacation is associated with freedom and relaxation. Many people forget that there is a dress code in hotels. Its rules vary depending on the prestige of the premises. Five-star hotels in the city center have the strictest dress codes. Sometimes their employees ask guests to leave the restaurant if they are wearing inappropriate attire. In three- and four-star hotels, which are located in tourist destinations, the dress code is relaxed. However, this does not mean that you can enter a bar or restaurant in a bathing suit and flip-flops. Proper attire ensures the comfort of all guests and prevents problematic situations.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, which is eaten in a hotel restaurant, requires wearing smart casual attire. This means forgoing sweatpants, bathrobes and pajamas in favor of slightly more appropriate clothing. Women can opt for a dress slightly before the knee or a blouse and skirt before the knee. In addition, pants and a blouse/shirt are always a good option. It is recommended to abandon shorts in favor of a slightly longer bottom. A man can wear a shirt, chinos and appropriate footwear. It is worth remembering that the meal is eaten in the company of other people, so take care to ensure shared comfort, avoiding excessive display of exposed flesh.

Women's moccasins made of natural leather and their male counterparts are considered the perfect shoes for any occasion at the hotel. They stand out for their elegance and excellent sense of style. They can be matched with a dress, but also with linen pants and a shirt. They remain comfortable and breathable. They do not bruise the feet even during the greatest heat, when they swell due to water retention in the body. They take up relatively little space in luggage.
