A night at the casino is a great opportunity to dress up and have a great time with your friends! It's a fun and stylish way to spend an evening away, but make sure you are dressed appropriately for the occasion. Knowing what to expect and how to find the perfect outfit can make your evening even better!
Part 1 of 4: Research the dress code and atmosphere
Step 1. Find out if the casino has a dress code
Some casinos have strict design codes, so find out before you go - you shouldn't find out that you have to wear a blazer while you're there! You can call the casino or check their website.
Important terms related to dress code include evening wear, elegant, casual-elegant, and casual. If you're not sure what these terms mean, don't hesitate to ask
Step 2. Research the atmosphere of the casino
Find out what the atmosphere is in the casino. The decoration, the way it is presented, and the style of the casino will all influence your choice of dress. If it's 1950s style, maybe you should be wearing your most stylish outfit with a vintage look. Check the website for pictures of the inside of the casino to get an idea of the level of formality. Pictures of guests or employees in suits, sleek furniture, and quality food and drink could all suggest that this is a more formal casino.
- If the casino presents itself as an elegant location for an evening full of glamor, you should wear elegant evening wear, even if it is not in the dress code.
- On the other hand, you may not feel comfortable wearing a tuxedo in a shabby ship casino that advertises its all-you-can-eat buffet of popcorn and shrimp.
Step 3. Think about going somewhere else that evening
Think about your entire evening before making a decision. If you're planning on going out for fancy dining or cocktails that night, your outfit should be a little more elegant than it otherwise would be. Some casinos also have clubs or restaurants where the dress code is a little more elegant than in the actual gaming area.
Step 4. Ask the other people in your group what they will be wearing
If you are going on a date or with a group of friends, it is best if you are all dressed more or less equally elegantly. If everyone else is wearing evening attire, you will look very out of place in your khakis and polo shirt.
If your date or friends want to wear something that would be totally inappropriate (like jeans in a casino that requires evening wear), don't hesitate to tell the person
Step 5. Set a budget for your clothing
You may already have the perfect outfit at home, but if not, decide how much you want to spend before you go shopping. A reasonable budget will depend on your financial situation and the item of clothing you want to buy - for example, if you buy a tuxedo, $ 50 will not be enough.
You can also rent elegant clothing for men and women online or from specialist stores
Part 2 of 4: Choosing the right clothing for men
Step 1. Make sure the clothes fit you well
The most important element of a good outfit is the fit. If a piece of clothing doesn't fit you, it won't look good no matter how beautiful it is. Always buy clothes that fit your shoulders and hips, and that have the correct length of sleeves and legs. Don't worry if you're struggling to find something perfect - you can have most clothes changed!
Step 2. Dress in evening attire for an evening
If you have to wear evening wear, you should wear your very best clothes. Men should wear a black tuxedo with a white shirt - no frills, brightly colored jackets, or gaudy bow ties. You can wear a cummerbund in a dark, more subtle color like burgundy, navy blue, or forest green.
- You can also borrow a tuxedo from any smart clothing store.
- There's even a much more formal dress code called tuxedo, but you will probably never find this in a casino.
Step 3. Choose an elegant or casually elegant suit
Elegant and casually elegant outfits don't have to be as fine as evening wear, but you should still make sure that you look good. Men should wear suits with ties. You can do without the tie for casual, elegant occasions, but make sure to wear a suit shirt and a blazer.
Step 4. Wear for casual, chic occasions
If you choose a casual-chic or casual-chic (that means the same thing) outfit, you can be a little less formal. Men can wear khakis and dress shirts, or even jeans with a jacket. A good guideline is to think about what you would wear to a beach wedding, someone else's graduation, or lunch at a good restaurant.
Step 5. Choose shoes that match the elegance of your outfit
You will need black dress shoes to go smart or evening wear in casinos with the dress codes, but you can wear different colors for casual and chic and casual chic occasions. Your shoes should match the main color of your suit - black shoes with a black suit, brown shoes with a brown suit, etc. etc.
Sneakers and flip flops will almost never be suitable for the casino. The only exceptions are gambling bars and possibly beachfront casinos
Step 6. Choose accessories that go with your clothes
Men tend to use few accessories, but in the casino you can also experiment with something new. Unless the casino has very strict evening wear regulations, you can wear gemstone cufflinks, brightly colored neckties, or even cowboy neckties or hats.
Step 7. Always think about a reserve outfit
It's always a good idea to have a second outfit on your mind, just in case. There is a risk of losing or damaging your clothing prior to your visit to the casino. You could also gain or lose weight, or just change your mind.
Part 3 of 4: Choosing women's clothing
Step 1. Make sure the clothes fit you well
If your outfit doesn't fit you, it won't look good no matter how beautiful it is. Before choosing an outfit, make sure it fits well around the shoulders and hips, and that the hems and sleeves are the right length for you. Most evening wear stores also offer changing clothes if they don't fit perfectly.
Step 2. Choose an evening dress
Evening wear is not as strict for women as it is for men, but you will still have to wear your very best clothes. Women should choose a floor-length evening dress in an elegant fabric such as silk, satin or velvet - no jersey, linen or cotton blends. You can wear pretty much any color, especially black, white, neutrals, and gem colors.
Step 3. Choose a cocktail dress or trouser suit for elegant or casually elegant casinos
Elegant and casually elegant outfits don't have to be as formal as evening wear, but you should still make sure to look good. Women can wear a cocktail dress, a dress that reaches just below the knees, or even a tuxedo-style pant suit. Black dresses are popular on elegant or casually elegant occasions, but any color is acceptable.
Casinos are great places to add a little more flashy accessories to your smart clothes. Try to incorporate sequins, lamé or pearl embroidery into your outfit
Step 4. Wear a shift dress, elegant jeans or a pretty skirt for a casual-chic look
If you have to wear casual-chic or casual-chic (that means the same thing), you can be a little less formal. Women can then wear a shift dress, skirt or even chic jeans with a pretty blouse. Casual-chic is the same clothing that you would wear in a fancy bar or a wedding that takes place during the day.
Step 5. Wear comfortable shoes that match the elegance of your outfit
In evening wear, elegant and casually elegant, pumps, sandals with heels and flat shoes made of high-quality material are always in order. However, flip-flops and trainers will never be appropriate in a casino.
Make sure you can walk comfortably in your shoes before you go out
Step 6. Choose fancy, glamorous accessories
A casino is a great place to wear jewelry and accessories that you would not be able to wear on normal elegant occasions. A bit of glitter and glamor is expected in the casino, so you can let off steam with the accessories! Try flashy necklaces, lots of rings, and fancy hair clips.
Step 7. Think of a reserve outfit
It's always good to have a second outfit in case you need one. In the time before you go to the casino, you could lose or damage your clothes, gain or lose weight, or just change your mind.
Part 4 of 4: Getting dressed
Step 1. Iron or strengthen your outfit
The world's best tuxedo will look terrible when it's crumpled and wrinkled. Make sure your clothes are ironed, steamed, or dry cleaned before you get dressed. Read the label before doing anything, especially for evening wear - many items of clothing cannot be ironed or can only be ironed on a special setting.
Step 2. Hang your outfit until you are ready to put it on
Once you've ironed your outfit, keep it hung on a hanger until you put it on. Put it in a garment bag instead of stuffing it in a crowded closet. Otherwise, you will only have to wash and iron it again if it becomes dusty or wrinkled.
Step 3. Polish your shoes (optional)
Most dress shoes for men and some for women will need to be polished before you can wear them. If you can't buff them yourself, take them to a cobbler or upscale shoe store. If your shoes don't need polishing, make sure they are clean, not worn, cracked, and have no worn soles.
Step 4. Check that your clothes are not fringed, torn or stained
If your clothes are older or have not been worn in a long time, check them to make sure they are free of fringes, holes, or stains. If you can find any, take your clothes to a tailor or dry cleaner if they do some minor patching work, or wear your spare outfit.
Step 5. Make sure you are getting your clothes on properly
If you are wearing something that you are not used to, make sure that you are wearing it properly before you go out of the house. Look for exposed bra straps, open buttons or zippers, and fabric that is pushed together. Have your date or a friend look at you to make sure you look perfect!
- The pockets of new suit trousers and vests are almost always sewn up. Carefully cut them open with the scissors before putting them on.
- The bottom button of a tuxedo jacket should be left open.
- Bring some safety pins in your purse or pocket in case you need to fix a torn seam or tear.
- In general, it is better to dress too smartly than too casually. You can dress more elegantly than prescribed (evening wear for a formal occasion), but you shouldn't dress too casually (casually elegant for a gala event).
