What to wear on a night out in a Las Vegas Casino

The casino has really become a popular choice among people looking to vary their nights out beyond the standard visits to a pub or a nightclub, but most casinos do operate a dress code of some kind – so you need to think about what to wear. Partly your dress choices will depend on this dress code, but you should also consider the kind of casino night you have planned, and how fancy and/or exclusive the casino itself is. If you’re more used to playing at online casinos like www.jackpotcity.org, then hopefully we can help give you a few pointers so you won’t stick out like a sore thumb for your first land-based experience.

If you are just spending the evening with friends, or a partner, at your local casino then smart casual dress may be the best option. If you wear trousers (not jeans) and a shirt then this should fit comfortably within the dress code of most local casinos, and will not leave you feeling uncomfortably over-dressed when you are playing the slots or hitting the blackjack or poker tables. On the other hand if you are visiting such a casino for a party (say a stag night), then you will want to dress up a bit more. You may want to opt for a designer label suit, rather than something wackier though, unless you are sure in advance that the casino will accept this.

One thing that lets many men down is their hands. Naturally men aren’t expected to have delicate hands like women. Men’s hands are made for different things, but that doesn’t mean that you can get away without clean and perfectly manicured nails. When you play games at a casino, your hands are constantly in view, so make the best of them. A manicure doesn’t cost that much and it is getting much more common for men to have them, they are not just for metrosexuals. The same goes for the hair, a decent expensive haircut will get you a long way but do avoid some of the more hideous modern fashions and that head shaven look, it is just too corny and cheap. Though the fingernails issue may seem a little silly, think again. Life can all be seen as a game of appearances, and it has been well-documented that snap judgements can be made based on people’s fingernails. It’s the small things that matter.

Some casino party nights do feature a fancy dress theme of course, agreed in advance with the casino, and here what you decide to wear should be guided by the theme. James Bond is a common theme for a night like this, and that represents your chance to dress up to the nines in a tuxedo, accessorised with cigarette holder and martini. Another popular theme is retro gangster and for this pinstripe suit, fedora hat and cigar will fit the bill, maybe topped off with a money belt full of (presumably fake) cash, as this will perfectly complete the image of unsubtle high roller flashiness.

Spotlight: Designer Menswear from Haxby

While men’s fashion has gone through numerous changes over the years, quality construction never goes out of style. This is the brand philosophy behind Haxby Collective, a new menswear line created by Michael Dow and Timothy White.

Haxby is all about creating contemporary menswear that lives up to the quality of past purveyors of men’s fashions. Savile Row, those iconic tailors that dressed the men of London in years past, is just one inspiration shared by Dow and White.

The resulting line is comprised of things like jeans, sneakers, and many great accessories guaranteed to turn heads. Unlike other contemporary men’s brands, Haxby insists on handcrafting all of their pieces, taking these common items and turning them into something unforgettable.

Emphasizing Quality Over Convenience

The creation of the Haxby line involved extensive research that took place all over the globe. The results of this two year mission, which involved compiling only the best in raw materials and crafters, can be seen in Haxby’s debut pieces, which include many great items perfect for work or play.

Gorgeous materials are made even more stunning by the level of craft that goes into each piece. Unlike the automated processes that feature greatly in most clothing lines, the minds behind Haxby insist that all items are handmade. This results in a level of detail that must be seen to be believed.

Classic Footwear Gets a Boost

While most men’s footwear puts the emphasis on function over form, Haxby sneakers eschew a utilitarian aesthetic in favor of all-out class. This is wholly evident in the sleek cordovan leather used in construction, in addition to the hand-buffing that each pair undergoes before they are ready for sale. Each pair is meticulously crafted in Montegranaro, Italy, and features a classic design that can easily go from casual wear to more formal attire.

So Much More Than a Pair of Jeans

While jeans are a staple of many wardrobes, they don’t often possess that wow factor typically found in luxury clothing. Haxby has changed all that with their amazing line of hand-crafted jeans. Featuring a number of great styles, Haxby jeans are created from only the finest denim available utilizing the tried and true methods of quality garment creation. Even the accents are labored over, featuring hardware derived from precious metals and gems.

Accessories Complete the Look

Much like the rest of the line, Haxby really ups the ante when it comes to accessories. Belts are crafted in Switzerland and Italy, and utilize only the finest materials available. These include stainless steel, along with hand-cast gems. Haxby’s eyewear collection is also quite stunning, thanks to the keen attention to detail. All Haxby glasses come courtesy of Japan’s world-renowned Masunaga Optical factory, which entails a 200 step process to create just a single pair. The inlay is available in either a 24K yellow or white gold, serving as yet another example of Haxby’s devotion to detail.

Style, Beauty, and Quality in One Package

From head to toe, Haxby has what it takes to turn a lackluster wardrobe into a sight to behold. These introductory pieces are merely a sampling of what to expect from this up and coming menswear designer.

Celebrity Fashion Trends – Coupling in Style

When celebrities are away from the red carpet, they are still very much in the public eye. Whether they are out shopping in Beverly Hills, arriving at their favorite bistro, or taking a walk in the park, there is always interest in what they are doing and what they are wearing.

This month’s celebrity couple street style includes actress Vanessa Hudgens and boyfriend Austin Butler, who were spotted at the 2014 Coachella Fashion Festival. Vanessa had adopted golden tresses to replace her long dark hair, which complimented her Bohemian look with her wide brim sun hat, tomato red printed mini-dress, and her short black leather boots with fringe and dangling metal trim. Vanessa’s boyfriend Austin also gets into the Bohemian vibe with his brown fedora, white gauze button-down shirt and blue medallion patterned pants.

Next, is a photo of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, pre-marriage, strolling down the Rue Pierre Charron in Paris. Kim has on this heavily beaded grey and black dress that not only looks like it should weigh a ton, but also looks like it should be hanging off a curtain rod in a museum. The only thing I like about the outfit is her black boots. I am more a fan of Kanye’s more casual choice of his multi-layered grey hoodie with the black two-way zip jacket, baggy blue jeans, and black and white print sneakers.

Women’s Fashion Advice – Don’t Forget the Denim

In case you missed it, one day last month, April, marked the 15th celebration of Denim Day, an annual violence prevention day focused on raising awareness about abuse and violence against women and children. Working to get everyone talking about such an important topic, many sponsors including Dasha Wellness & Spa, Moroccan Oil, and D.I.D Nail Paint helped put together an incredible event.

There’s a reason we practically grew up in denim pants, they’re stylish, they go with anything, and they are pretty durable. No matter if you ripped them, cuffed them, or turned them into shorts- we’re betting jeans were and still are a major part of your wardrobe.

While studies have shown that leggings are officially the new ‘it’ item for young girls who have strayed away from jeans in favor of ‘athleisure’ pants (yes there are studies done about what type of pants young girls are wearing!). We don’t believe denim is a passing fade (despite the sale of leggings sky rocketing) and aren’t ready to give up our favorites just yet.

So to honor the baggie pants of our high school days and skinny jeans of our weekends nowadays, here are our favorite ways to wear denim. With so many options, you can leave your workout clothes where they belong, at the gym!

Men’s Fashion Trends – Thank God The 90s Are Waaay Over

The ‘90s were a magical decade.They brought us the best era rap music has ever seen – and in my opinion will ever see. They were the days when guys could turn on the TV and idolize greats like Michael Jordan and Roberto Baggio. Mobile phones evolved from Zack-Morris-bulky to the tiny Nokias you could play snake on at the back of class.

But, there were some failures as well. The dot-com bubble crippled many.An American president will forever be remembered for his cigar-wielding antics instead of his accomplishments. And of course, men’s fashion was at an all time appalling low – it only took flicking on the TV to see the Fresh Prince in all his neon, ill-fitting glory.
