    Heading to Vegas March 22-27, staying at the Flamingo. The hubs and I don't plan on hitting any popular nightclubs, but we do plan on being out and about on the strip at night and checking out different bars/etc...do I keep it somewhat dressy in the evenings? During the week vs. Friday and Saturday? Dresses/nightclub attire or pants/capris and shirt? I'm 31 year old, don't want to over or under do it :)

    Thanks!

    If you're just gonna do the casino bars, casual is fine, day or night, weeknight or weekend.

    You can dress up a bit if you want and you won't look out of place but it's usually not necessary unless you want to or you're going to the nicer restaurants and such. Nicer coordinates or maybe something like a wrap dress is a bit more dressy but not really fancy.

    Now the club-going 20-boppers will definitely get all done up and such and you can certainly put on the dog if you wish to wear one. :) :) :) If you go too much in that direction you may (LOL, read some of the threads here) get mistaken for a "professional." :) :) :)

    You will find all types of dress on all nights in Vegas. Every night there are a bunch of 20-something ladies carrying their too tall shoes and pulling down their too short dresses. :) But you'll also see the shorts & t-shirt crowd mixed in with them.

    Typically my trips, especially those with the husband, will have one dressy night where we go out to a really nice dinner or something similar. Dress pants, button down shirt for husband. Dress or dressy suit for me. For sure, be careful about your shoe choice. You'll walk a lot more miles in Vegas than you will at home, so be sure your shoes will cooperate.

    They only places you are likely to encounter a dress code will be a top-tier restaurant or the nightclubs. Even with these, you'll find some wiggle room.

    Vegas is the one place that you can really wear anything you want.
    Some people feel that Vegas in March is like Halloween and will wear something they'd only wear on a night where they dress up different than they would on any other night.

    Ahhhh, the "step, step, pull" attire we witness on the weekends of the pool parties at Harrah's AC. Lol.

    oo

    Dress Comfortable

    Don't worry about anyone else, I've seen Multi Millionaires throwing down 10k-25k+ bets wearing shorts & flip flops,
    & Grinders Playing a dime a press slots in a suit, your choice!

    Your on Vacation, if you want to dress up, make it so!:wave:

    I definitely have "only in vegas" clothes. But I would never wear heels, even ones I wear to the office. I say dress up a little if you enjoy dressing up. If not, don't. You might feel out of place at, say, Bond on a Saturday night, in capris. But don't wear heels!

    Every night or every morning????? Being from the east and an early riser to begin with, I am quite familiar with the post clubbing crowd but the pre clubbing crowd...not so much

    Thank you!! Small town WI doesn't dress up for a Saturday night at the bar :) I wouldn't mind a few fun dressier outfits, but I'll keep the "step step pull" in mind! lol

    Can't wait!

    Unless you are going to a legitimate club there is no reason to get all dressed up. Remember that in vegas everything is much farther than it seems and you will do a lot of walking. Wear comfortable shoes.

    everyday is a Halloween in Vegas, especiallly for the ladies. that is why I love going there. great eye candy. But, seriously I think its always a good idea to have something nice to wear whether for the ladies or Gents.

    I echo some of the previous comments. My husband and I dress for dinner as we usually have dinner at upscale places. I also have "Vegas" clothes, stuff with bling and other ornate clothing that I only wear in Vegas. It's fun and a great departure from my normal boring daily suit clothes!

    The real show is when these girls have a couple of drinks in them and they forget the "pull" in the "step..step...pull" routine. Those thongs don't cover much.

    I saw this super drunk girl being semi-dragged through Cosmo at 3am by who I am assuming was her boyfriend. There was a crowd of about 15-20 guys following and staring at her bethonged ass hanging out of her dress. I told the guys they were pigs and a couple looked embarrassed and walked away.

    I asked her boyfriend if they were okay and he grunted. I tried to make conversation with her, but neither of her eyes were looking in the same direction. I said, "Honey, you're in bad shape and your ass is hanging out for the world to see." She said, "Thxwerjbplpk" and made a half-hearted tug at the dress. Poor thing. I asked the boyfriend if they needed any help and he said, "I gert ot" or something. Then I saw Cosmo security coming and I headed off to the taxi line.

    Partying and having a good time is part of the Vegas experience, but you have to keep your wits about you. And your ass covered. :wink2:

    Comfy shoes or sexy but comfy heels, are key to a fun night out.
    Black capris or pants, dressy top or plain top with glam jewelry, or that cute dress hanging in your closet just crying out for a trip to Vegas would work for most any bar or restaurant. I'd take one dressy dressy just in case...

    Have fun and keep us posted!
