I’m going to Las Vegas and have no idea what to wear. Could you give me some suggestions? Thanks, Sue
Las Vegas is one of those surreal places. It’s like walking around in a dreamland because life goes on 24 hours a day, and most of the buildings have no windows, so you lose track of day and night!
It’s an “anything goes” type of town, which means that some gals dress so super casual, it’s ridiculous. I’ve seen women walking down Las Vegas Blvd. in swimsuits and cover-ups.
A few years back I spotted a mature woman entering Celine Dion’s evening show wearing tacky cutoff jean shorts, a tank top and dirty plastic flip flops.
On the other side of the coin, you see plenty of women who dress up. Vegas is famous for glitz and glam, giving you the chance to wear something you wouldn’t often have the chance to wear back home. If there’s an outfit you have always wanted to try, this is the place to do it! Just remember always to stay classy and not too sassy!
Here are some of the things you need to think about when dressing for Las Vegas:
From June to September it’s extremely hot outside, 100+, and very cool in the casinos and shopping areas with the air conditioning blasting. Dress in layers. You will need to take a jacket or some type of sweater if you are wearing a summer dress or sleeveless top. In the evening, a pashmina is a good thing to have on hand. Come fall and spring bring a light coat or jacket. Las Vegas gets very chilly this time of year, believe it or not. It’s the desert.
The Shoe Issue
You will be walking a lot! The Casinos are huge and you’ll be up and down the strip from one place to the next. Bring some sexy heels for dinner, but believe me, you will be so sorry if you don’t bring some comfy flats. Slip some lightweight flats in your bag when you go club hopping. In the fall try low booties.
The Sexy Factor
How do you dress fun and sexy, but still look classy over 40? The key is to look alluring and not vulgar. If you want to play to your flirty side, Vegas is perfect for that, but too short, too low cut, too tight, especially all at once is too much. You just need one small sexy focal point to look wow.
What to Wear In Las Vegas By Day?
A cute sundress, a pair of nice jeans are cool and classy in the casinos, shops, and restaurants. If you are going to be walking around outside in summer, you may prefer shorts or cropped pants with sandals, as long jeans may be too heavy for the intense heat.
Yes to the Maxi Dress!
A casual maxi dress is another great choice for daywear. Add some fab jewelry and heels and it’s perfect for the night clubs- a good transition piece.
For special dinners and a show bring a cocktail dress and some bling. You can never go wrong with a little black dress. Another great idea is to wear a dressy jumpsuit. A black one like this is sexy and elegant- Viva Las Vegas!
Wondering What to Wear in Las Vegas Nightclubs?
Here’s where you can really turn on the glam. One note, though – too much bling, sparkle and shine can make it look like you stepped out of the good old days when people actually “dressed”. In today’s world, you may look a little overdressed in head to toe sparkle. By all means, add some glitz, but be tasteful about it.
If you prefer to keep your arms covered, I suggest a dress or blouse with sleeves and a sexy neckline. For example, a wrap dress with long sleeves will show off your shape but keep your arms covered. Don’t forget some sexy heels for clubbing!
Are you planning to spend time lounging by the pool? Choose something colorful and sexy. You also definitely want a nice wrap and big sunglasses to look glam by the pool.
