Many people still associate casinos with old Hollywood glamour and modern-day opulence that
celebrities embody, even if it’s just for an evening of play. Either way, visiting the casino is still an
occasion to prepare for! Whether you imagine casinos to be full of men dressed in black-tie attire or
ladies in sparkling evening gowns, here is a guide that will teach you the basics of how to dress for
Each casino has its own dress code. Dress codes can vary from more casual to slightly more glamorous
cocktail to super sophisticated black tie. As such, it's recommended that you determine the specific
dress code observed by the casino you'll be heading to.
If you're unable to find out the dress code in advance, a good rule of thumb is to dress in semi-formal
attire. This is the standard for most casinos and will be accepted in most areas of the establishment. This
way, you'll likely be accepted whether you're planning to visit the open playing floors or the more
exclusive high roller gaming rooms.
Though it’s common for casino-goers to dress to impress, it’s taboo to be too flashy. To illustrate, in
poker etiquette it’s important not to be disruptive lest you run the risk of distracting or offending others.
As such, it is also important to dress accordingly and avoid anything loud and obnoxious. This means
that clothing that is too brightly colored or overly reflective is better worn off the gaming floor.
The number one rule when dressing for a casino is to dress respectfully. Although characters in films
may follow flashier dress codes for their casino visits, it’s best to don dresses and suits that are
inoffensive and, more importantly, do not detract from the game. Dressing as though you are grabbing
attention can draw focus and result in some ruffled feathers.
The last thing you should consider when dressing for casino night is how long you intend to be there.
While dressing for style is important for casino night, it’s also crucial not to neglect comfort. Women
who will be walking around all night may opt for lower and more comfortable heels. Men could also
wear stylish but comfortable shirts that they can layer with a jacket throughout the night.
What you'll be during your time in a casino can also be factored in. Games like blackjack and poker can
take a very long time, so dressing the part is a must, especially when it gets cold. Wearing a leather
jacket instead of the usual suit jacket will protect you from the cold and keep you comfortable as you
keep playing. The same goes for wraps and scarves for ladies wearing dresses or thinner garments.
Learning how to dress for casino night can be intimidating for some. With this guide, it doesn’t have to
be, and you’ll be strutting your stuff on the casino floor in no time!
