Dressing to Impress:  What You Need to Know About the Las Vegas Dress Code.

For the most part, Vegas dress code is come as you are, or at least come as you want people to think you are.  This is your chance to strut around in those leather pants that have been hiding in your closet or that cocktail dress that has yet to see a Cosmo.  With the millions of people visiting from every walk of life, it is not uncommon to see a guy in a tee shirt and jeans throwing the dice next to a lady in an evening gown.  That’s the casino floor.  For clubbing, everything does not go and in order to get through the door you need more than a smile and a bankroll.

The Nightclub:  You haven’t done Vegas right if you haven’t at least spent one night twerking in one of their infamous nightclubs.  Problem is, you won’t get to twerk if you aren’t dressed for it. For ladies so long as you look hot you are getting in.  This is the time to indulge that dress like a hooker fantasy, just make sure you are a high end one.  Guys don’t have the benefit of T&A to get them through the door and things like baggy jeans and baseball caps will only make it harder.  Stick with slacks, a shirt with a collar and dress shoes.  If you have to wear a tee make it a nice one and dress it up with a jacket. There is no telling what the bouncers may bounce you for, so for a guy, the best accessory you can have to guarantee entrance is a to be a VIP! Book yourself a table of hosted entry right from the Vegaster App.

The Dayclub:  Just because the sun is out doesn’t mean you get to leave your class in the hotel room.  If anything the dress code at Vegas’ notorious pool parties is stricter than the nightclub. Most pools are part of a major hotel whose management does not want their other guests bothered by a string of girls walking around in, well, string bikinis.  While a bathing suit is encouraged, so is a wrap or a sundress and heels.  For the guys they should arrive in board shorts and a tee.  Sneakers are a no-no as are cutoff shorts and sports jerseys.  This is to get past the door, once inside feel free to toss that sundress aside and show off your bikini, so long as it is not XXX-rated.  Anything see through will get you ousted as will sunbathing in the buff.

As for anywhere else in Vegas, the dress code is no dress code.  Of course you won’t be let into a 5 star restaurant if you look like a slob, but they also won’t bat an eye at your jeans as long as you look presentable. Even at a show like Cirque du Soleil you will find men in suits alongside girls in shorts. What the powers that be want is for you to be comfortable and feel free to express yourself.

Act like you own it. It's Vegas!

The best part of a Vegas va-cay is that you choose the type of experience you have.  Whether that be a super sophisticated weekend wearing cocktail dresses and tuxedos or a low key get-a-way in casual attire.  Shoot, some people have even been known to come dressed as Elvis. Anything goes in Sin City so use this time to accentuate your own personal style, or adopt the one you have always dreamed of having.
