Las Vegas is a 24-hour, nonstop city full of over-the-top glitz and glamour. We’ve all heard the saying, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” That may be true but when it comes to fashion, even the wild city has certain unsaid rules. Don’t get caught up wearing the wrong outfit. Follow our cheat sheet of Las Vegas Fashion Dos and Don’ts.
There are so many amazing shops to check out in Vegas and it runs the gamut, from outlets to high-end designer boutiques. You can easily get lost in labyrinthian shopping destinations like Fashion Show Las Vegas (That’s where you can find our brand new Tadashi Shoji boutique). Still, there is no excuse for dressing like a tacky tourist.
Don’t show your amateur fashion colors by going out in too tight clothing and outrageous high heels. You are going to shop, not be featured in a music video.
Do go for fashionable chic for your shopping jaunts. There will be a lot of walking so a flirty cocktail dress in a breathable material will maintain your fabulous style without bypassing comfort. Pair the flirty dress with comfortable sandals or of-the-moment sneaker trend.
Vegas is not a bleak desert filled with all-you-can-eat buffets. Fine dining abounds throughout the strip. We love Cosmopolitan STK and the Greek restaurant Estiatorio Milos and if brunch is important, we suggest checking out the French Bardot Brasserie in the Aria Resort. With that in mind, book a reservation in advance and dress the part.
Don’t show up at these restaurants looking as if you just left the pool area. These are fine dining establishments and you should dress accordingly.
Do take the opportunity to go glam. There’s no need to be formal but a beautiful cocktail dress with embroidered details in eye-popping colors will really add to the event. If it’s a romantic date, show a little skin with sheer details.
Vegas is such a wedding destination. You can go camp with an Elvis impersonator officiating your wedding (Graceland Wedding Chapel) or go all out luxury (Bellagio). It really depends on the type of nuptials you want.
Don’t wear a crazy princess ball gown or, to the other extreme, wear an ultra casual ensemble of jeans.
Do wear a dress, white or not. You can be a beautiful bride in a stunning dress that is elegant and far from being cheesy.
Nights in Vegas are filled with options. You can catch the hottest concert, variety show (Jennifer Lopez, anyone?) or hit the club with a famous dj spinning.
Don’t go all out trashy. Vegas is a wild town but there’s no excuse to dress like you are about to perform on stage. Leave the showgirl leotard costume for the real showgirls.
Do high voltage glamour. Illuminate with an all-over sequin outfit. Show off them curves with a tight-fitting jumpsuit. You can go risqué and sexy, not vulgar.
