Dressing for a Vegas Weekend
Posted on August 08 2011
Vegas is a city that can be equal parts class and crass—and depending on whether you are there for a romantic weekend at a luxury hotel or a wild, “what happens in Vegas, stays there” bachelorette party, you need to dress the part.

The good news is that, even if you are having a champagne and Cirque du Soleil-filled Vegas weekend, getaway, or even a marriage and honeymoon, the sky is the limit in terms of how much you want to dress up. Looks that would not fly in Chicago, New York and (maybe) Los Angeles—think spangled, sequined, lame and Lurex—are all par for the course in anything-goes Las Vegas. Having been to Las Vegas some 20 times, it is clear that the shimming lights on the strip make metallics the way to go when you choose your evening look.
For a night at one of the amazing five star restaurants in Vegas, a city as good for eating (and shopping) as for gambling, show your date you are worth your weight in gold in this spectacular gilded/golden metallic dress by Nicole Bakti. It is for a woman with confidence, but you can be confident that wearing it, even without any jewelry, will have all eyes on you as you stride the red carpeted casino floor like a Bond babe.
The Vegas club scene at hot spots like the new Cosmopolitan hotel consists of a very distinct look: dresses and skirts so short you mom might not have let you leave the house if she had seen you in them first. For a micro mini that will have you looking hot as the Vegas temperatures this ‘60s short micro mini fits in with the trend while the longer sleeves and elegant black color balance out the scanty hemline
Bring out your wild side and sparkle in this silver and black tiger-striped dress with sequin embellishments; it hits at a classy length while still standing out in Sin City
To stand out but still stay classy, this Tadashi dress is as sexy as it gets with sheer cut outs while maintaining a proper level of sophistication with an on-trend, one sleeve silhouette and a moderate hemline.
Depending on your look, opt for matching metallic or black shoes and bags. But remember: Vegas is the one place where over the top is always in style.
