I’m headed out on a cruise soon and shamefully, I’ve never in my life been to a casino, let alone a cruise. I have no idea what to wear to a casino, because I’m pretty sure the skimpy bikinis with tailfeathers and headdresses are reserved for the showgirls. I’m only a showgirl in my dreams. So I asked someone to come hook us up with some information on what to wear on a night out. Come check it out.
When going for a night out, obviously the first thing you’re going to think about is what to wear. One of the effects of the growing popularity of online casinos like Jackpot City, whose games you can Play here, is that they are encouraging people to discover what it’s really like playing casino games at a real bricks and mortar casino. The first time that you visit a real casino can be quite eye opening, particularly if you have over-indulged in James Bond movies and your image of a casino is a glamorous place where the men go round in Tuxedos and the women in eye catching cocktail dresses. This does happen occasionally, some of the top up market casinos have special black tie dinners when you would be expected to wear an evening dress and your man a tux.
Also if you ever go on a cruise with one of the more up-market cruise lines then many nights are black tie, and unless you want to stay in your cabin then black tie is more or less obligatory in the casino, restaurants and bars. Of course it is all part of the fun, dressing up for an evening out always makes it a very special occasion. Most women make the best of it by wearing a special evening dress, so it tends to be a bit of a fashion parade, so at least be prepared.
Visiting a down town casino is very different. They don’t tend to be particularly glamorous places and at best smart casual is the dress code. Today many of them even admit customers, both men and women, who are wearing jeans, which can be a bit depressing as there no longer seems to be a real sense of occasion. Naturally if you want to turn up looking a little more glamorous then by all means do so, as long as you don’t feel out of place, though if your aim is just to feel comfortable in what you choose to wear and to blend in with the crowd, then that’s fine too.
