Summer is here and it's time to hit the beach but if you are headed to Wildwood, New Jersey, you might need to pay attention to the dress code.

Summer is here and time to hit the beach but if you are headed to Wildwood, New Jersey, you might need to pay attention to the dress code.

The city is slated to vote on a Boardwalk ban. The regulations pertain to shoes, shirts and waistbands.

The goal is to promote the area’s family-friendly allure. The mayor stated “I'm sick of hearing people complain about the disrespectful individuals who walk around with their butts hanging out. I know the social climate's changed and what people think is decent is different than it was.”

Under the proposed rules, shoes or sandals must be worn at all times on the Boardwalk. Between the hours of 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., a shirt that covers the breasts or pectoral area must be worn. Lastly, the waistband of pants, swimsuits or shorts cannot be worn lower than 3 inches below the wearer’s midsection.

Residents shared differing views on the submitted Boardwalk criteria. Wildwood isn’t the only area to be in favor of these regulations. Cape May and Ocean City both have clothing rules pertaining to promenade visitors.
