Whether you’re actually visiting the real Sin City to stare wide-eyed at the neon signs and have a shotgun wedding or just lying on your bed dreaming about it, we’ve compiled a guide for dressing to impress- Vegas style, channelling the glitz and glamour of a big city.
The main source of your glitz should be your dress
Wear something eye-catching and shiny. This can mean glitter, sequins, and beading, whatever you like as long as it catches the light! Also, pick something slim-fitting to show off your gorgeous body and short enough to reveal some leg. Make sure to avoid crossing the line between sexy and overly-revealing. Lacy dresses can look gorgeous as an embellished alternative; whatever style you choose, dress to your body type and in something that you’re comfortable in.
Find some high heels!
Vegas calls for high heels; the more eye-catching the better. So get yourselves a pair that is decorated with something – chiffon flowers, sequins or crystals. When choosing the fit of heels, get ones that are slimly fitted to your foot and make sure that any straps on them are tight to avoid balance problems and tripping. Get a pair that you can actually walk in unless you plan to sit down all night.
Accessories are the icing on the cake
Over-accessorising is strongly encouraged in a city overrun by flashiness and symbols of wealth. Layer on as much as you feel looks right with your outfit. We love chunky silver necklaces and bracelets with crystals. Mix it up by combining short and long chain necklaces and chunky and skinny bracelets.
Also get a clutch bag that complements your dress. It works well if you match to your jewellery colour and style. We suggest clutches because they aren’t heavy and frustrating to carry around like bigger bags but there are plenty of other options in the bags section if you need something more spacious.
