Dress Code: Get the Las Vegas Look

Planning a night out in Vegas? Las Vegas boasts world-renowned clubs all down the Strip with the most extravagant décor you can think of — and of course, music to keep you partying for hours. Before you head out for the evening, let’s talk wardrobe. The Vegas look is about standing out and showing off, and the right trendy attire is guaranteed to boost your confidence and bring out your party personality. Not sure where to start? Check out our outfit ideas and a few nightclub tips below!

What’s the Typical Vegas Nightclub Dress Code?

Some clubs do have a few rules to adhere to — particularly for men, so dress to impress! If you have a particular nightclub in mind, make sure to check their website for specific guidelines. When in doubt, a good nightclub dress code rule of thumb for men is to avoid baseball caps, tennis shoes or other athletic attire, ripped or loose-fitting clothing, shorts, and jerseys. Some nightclubs have dress codes that restrict certain types of shoes, so check the club’s website before you go (this goes for both men and women).

Ideas for Nightclub Attire for Men

Appropriate club attire for men may include dress shoes, trendy jeans, and a nice collared shirt. Dress pants usually aren’t required, so choose whatever makes you feel comfortable. Be careful with t-shirts: if it’s fitted and fashionable, it may work, but it can be risky. If you do wear one, layer on a jacket or sport coat. Want to class it up even more? Go with a suit — just make sure it’s tailored. There’s nothing worse than an ill-fitting suit!

Nightclub Outfit Ideas for Women

Ladies- now’s the time to finally break out that trendy dress you’ve had tucked away in your closet! You won’t often see nightclub rules directed at women. Club owners and bouncers are usually on the look-out for attractive groups of women, so here’s where splurging on upscale nightlife attire can pay off: groups of girls dressed to the nines will often get escorted to the front of the line or get in without paying a cover.

Most women opt for short dresses, heels, and a small clutch (avoid any big bags or purses, by all means!). If you’re not comfortable in a dress, jazz up some trendy shorts with a cute top and pumps. When you just can’t decide what to wear out in Vegas, an LBD (little black dress) amped up with some accessories is a classic start for a great night out. Keep in mind that the dance floor will get hot and crowded. Make sure you feel comfortable and not weighed down by any extra fabric (maxi dresses are out!) or jackets.
