Attire for your Vegas Vacation!

Written by Tiffany Milligan – A Vegas Local

“Girl, you sure are rocking those Jimmy Choo 8” Crystal heels!”

“Aren’t they FANTASTIC? They were a steal at $2,900! Plus, they’re SO COMFORTABLE, I didn’t pack any other shoes!”

This, my friends, is a prime example of a packing FAIL! Yes, any shoe is manageable for a period of time. Some shoes are manageable for an extended period of time. In Las Vegas, no shoe is comfortable when you’ve walked the strip a dozen times, shopped the malls, went to dinner, and danced all night…especially not 8” heels! Stop! I don’t want to hear the excuses; your heels are not “just as comfortable” as flats. Sooooooo, what to wear in Vegas…anything goes really. I mean it’s Vegas after all! I’ll break it down for you by activity for the sake of simplicity – you can sift through them and compile your own checklist ;) I’ll even highlight the items to make it SUPER easy!

Day Tours and Excursions

Straddling a horse and riding for hours while your thighs are rubbed raw on the leather saddle doesn’t sound like a whole lot of fun (get your mind out of the gutter)! What do you wear in Vegas for your day tours? Bring some comfy, broken-in jeans that you aren’t afraid to get dirty and a pair of tennis shoes. They will come in handy if you do buggy tours, horseback riding, racecar driving, or hiking. While you’re at it, throw in a hat of some sort (I prefer a baseball cap) and the sunblock because the sun WILL attack you from all angles like a stealth ninja… making the rest of your stay miserable.

Eating Out

Not everyone eats at McD’s! If you do, great, wear your sweatpants and that baggy t-shirt you’ve had since the 80’s – you know, the one with bleach stains and holes that you should have gotten rid of decades ago! If you are wanting to get out there and hit the restaurant hotspots, what do you wear in Vegas? You’ll be able to get away with business casual at most places. Men, this means pack a pair of pants and some nice shoes, along with a collared shirt. Ladies, just grab that infamous “little black dress” paired with some sexy heels and be done with it. Don’t overthink things, it’s just dinner!

Hmmmm, what to wear to the clubs in Vegas… if you want to go for the Miley Cyrus look, you don’t have to pack a thing – maybe some pasties if you’re the modest type! Lines get long and let’s face it, the hotter you look, the quicker they’ll pull you from the line and walk you to the entrance. With that being said, clubs here are no different than clubs anywhere else (I MAY have frequented the club scene in a few states). If you’re a guy, wear what you wore to dinner – pants, collared shirt, and dress shoes. If you’re a girl, hootchie up that black dress by adding obnoxious “statement” jewelry. ALWAYS carry a handbag big enough to house some flip flops (you’ll totally thank me for this advice). Let’s talk about make-up – however you want to doll up that pretty little face at home but don’t for fear it might be too outrageous will be just fine here! Use Vegas as your experimenting grounds for false eyelashes, glitter shadow, and the brightest lipstick you can find…everyone else does ;)

Seasonal “Weather”
READ the forecast. Don’t ignore it thinking Las Vegas is always a smoldering 108 degrees! It gets cold here and, believe it or not, it rains here! September is monsoon season…yes, you read correctly, monsoon season! We flood! Some things to bring to Vegas would be an umbrella (if the forecast says rain), a jacket for the evenings (and maybe the days if the forecast says it’s cool), sunglasses (because the sun WILL come out at some point…and it’s as bright at hades)…oh, and don’t forget the plastic rain poncho – they’re all the rage here! Ok, so maybe you can ditch the poncho. I’m just going to repeat myself to drive this point home. Las Vegas doesn’t have a magical weather fairy that flies around keeping things consistent nor does she have an invisible shield she can throw over you to protect you from whatever the weather throws your way!
