Televised poker has given many people the wrong idea about how to dress when they go to the casino. Many think that the grunge look is in and that it is totally acceptable to go to the casino in sweats or shorts and a t-shirt. The reality is that poker players are the exception rather than the rule on how to dress and today we are going to share with you some tips on how to pick your wardrobe for a night out at the casino.
First, why are going to the casino. Are you going to gamble or are you going there to party. If you are in a gambling mood, then your typical short cocktail dresses work well, especially when you have them paired with the right type of sandals. Formal dress is probably not necessary at most casinos but if you are a high roller or want to mingle with the high roller crowd, then you can choose a more formal gown.
If your intention is to have a night out at the casino to party, then you might want to dress more like model turned poker pro Lacey Jones. The “little black dress” is always a winner and is the epitome of sex appeal. If you are trying to get into the trendiest nightclubs, especially in locales like Las Vegas or Macau, you want to ooze as much sex appeal as possible without looking like a “working girl.” The sexiest girls usually get to the front of the line while those lacking in fashion sense will be waiting for a long time to get in, if they get in at all.
For the guys out there, you will want to add another wrinkle into your wardrobe choice and that is what image you want to portray. If you are gambling, consider casual slacks and a polo as they give you a more professional air. For maximum effect, consider a designer suit or tuxedo. These show that you are there to play and don’t mind showing off.
When heading to the club, you are more likely to get in if you look like you have money to spend. Designer suits or even a silk shirt with designer jeans will give off the appearance that you are there to party and spend some money. The bouncers are looking for hot girls and guys that look like they are going to spend some coin at the club.
You won’t find an official dress code posted at most casinos, but the reality is that the more professional and hotter that you look, the better service you will receive at the casino. During your next trip to the casino, pay attention to those that the pit bosses are chatting up and those that are receiving special treatment by the casino. You will find that those folks are among the best dressed in the casino and by following some of the above suggestions you could be receiving the same treatment on your next visit.
