When visiting Vegas, it can be hard to know how to stay stylish. You will visit numerous locations that go far beyond the casino floor.
In this Mecca of style, you need to look good in all eventualities. Below, we discuss how to create three essential outfits for your Las Vegas trip.
High Casino Style
The first stop on your road to Vegas style is to tackle the big 'casino night' outfit. For this, you should never stray much further than the tuxedo. A black suit and tie work on all sizes, shapes, and skin tones if fitted correctly.
One of the most important decisions to make is the lapel style of the dinner jacket. Shawl styles have rounded edges and look like a scarf around the neck. They tend to have a more informal look. Notch versions have a small indentation where the lapel is. Peak lapels have one that tapers into a V, making the waist look thinner. All can be worn at casinos and should look fantastic.
After this, decide if you will wear a tie or a bow tie. If you do not know how to fasten a bow tie, then take time to practice. Should it comes undone in the casino you will want to be able to reattach it quickly.
Your final choice is shoes. Opt for smart, black leather dress shoes that are well polished. If you buy them new, then make sure you wear them before you go. Casinos are huge places, and you may have to traverse quite a way to get to their restaurants, tables, and entertainment. CasinoSmash has a list of the best online casinos where you can try out these games before you visit. Many of their most recommended, such as BetMGM, operates numerous casinos in Vegas as well as their flagship offering. You can get used to the rules of the table games here before you go, and some even allow you to do so for free.
The Bar Hopper
Vegas is not all about gambling and in some instances, you may want a night out visiting its bars and restaurants. Unless you are going somewhere high-end, you can adopt a casual fashion approach to this.
Try pairing an open shirt with a T-Shirt, particularly a floral print with a plain T. Accompany this with smart dress jeans. On the feet, opt for a sturdy boot that can act as both a formal item and casual. This will allow you to gain entry if you do go anywhere that asks you not to wear sneakers.
Las Vegas can get quite hot and stuffy, so when doing your tourist mode, you need to opt for comfort and protection. Layers are the best way to do this, so keep a light sweater to hand to slip on over your top.
The sun can be very harsh if you are walking around, so use an appropriate hat and shades. All this will need to be kept in a stylish day bag, which should have the option to be turned into a backpack for comfort.
