What would you wear on a night out to a casino?

ginger casino What would you wear on a night out to a casino?Certain places one attends require a certain form of dress. This dress code may be unwritten or as with the case of casinos it can also be written. Most casinos have established dress codes that provide guests with guidelines for suitable clothing. These codes can also vary according to the time of day. Many casinos will have different requirements for evening wear. Some people may ask why go to the effort when you can play online casino games from the comfort of your home at, however for those of us who are more interested in a good night out than a gamble it can be worth taking some time to determine this information prior to dressing up for an evening out in the casino. It can save some possible embarrassment later on.

Formal wear is not needed when attending the casino in the evening. A woman’s best bet is to pair a casual clothing item with other formal pieces. This is known as a smart casual style of dress. Not only does it look great, it does provide a certain level of comfort which many women appreciate when playing casino games. For instance, if a woman chooses to keep most of her outfit casual, then she will definitely want to add a sports jacket to dress it up. Accessories can also be helpful in pulling off a smarter look. You could add a beautiful scarf, pin or other jewellery. Selecting one accessory is ideal to avoid one from looking over done.

Shoes are another crucial part when dressing for the casino. These venues will often not permit flip-flops to be worn so do not try wearing them. Good quality smart shoes made out of either leather or suede are ideal. Plain oxfords look nice. When choosing your shoes, select a pair that is comfortable. This would obviously mean avoid wearing stiletto heels. Casino going does require some walking and wearing uncomfortable shoes can really spoil one’s night. You want to be able to concentrate on your playing without thoughts of achy feet distracting you.

#Throwback!!! Fash-O-Ween Is Upon Us, Drag-it-up as your favorite Icon…Let’s Go!

Leave the plastic boots and corsets at home and forget tacky, store bought Halloween costumes this year. We get it, you just added “sexy” in front of your favorite animal or occupation or weekend hobby. Clever. How about showing a little class, as well as fashion sense, this time? This Halloween is Fash-o-ween. Many of today’s fashion industry icons are larger than life characters, instantly recognizable thanks to their unique personal style. So why not imitate your favorite fashion mogul and maybe pick up a few new pieces to add to your wardrobe after, you know, tricking or treating?

Anna Wintour 632x632 #Throwback!!! Fash O Ween Is Upon Us, Drag it up as your favorite Icon...Lets Go!

Oh Anna. Anna, Anna. How one person takes a look and makes it work for decades, I do not know. Leave it to the editor of Vogue to find a style that transcends time and trend. The bobbed haircut, large glasses and working-girl dress is instantly recognizable all by themselves. Add a large fur coat and some classic pumps and you’re ready for the front for and Alexander Wang.

Karl Lagerfeld 632x632 #Throwback!!! Fash O Ween Is Upon Us, Drag it up as your favorite Icon...Lets Go!

You’d be hard pressed to find a photo of Karl Lagerfeld wearing much color. Or without a custom, high collared white shit. Because of this signature look, Mr. Lagerfeld is another perfect Halloween copycat option. It’s the perfect get-up for the fashion-conscious male,  or the boyfriend being reluctantly dragged to a couples party. Best thing here is most of the pieces the majority of men already own; black tuxedo jacket and pants, white collared shirt (sorry, Karl’s or made special for him), dress shoes. Grab some silver chains and giant pendants and not even Coco could spot the difference.

donatella 632x632 #Throwback!!! Fash O Ween Is Upon Us, Drag it up as your favorite Icon...Lets Go!

If you’d rather glam up than be a slutty cat for Halloween, grab some self tanner and dress up as Donatella Versace. Her look is so synonymous with her brand that even her model’s look like her. Choose a bright colored dress (an homage to both Donatella’s personal style and Versace’s) and drip yourself in diamonds. If you don’t want to bleach the life out of your hair, there’s always wigs.  Just stay out of the tanning bed. Get the look without the damage.

Betsy Johnson 632x632 #Throwback!!! Fash O Ween Is Upon Us, Drag it up as your favorite Icon...Lets Go!Now if you really want to have fun and get noticed, while still showing your fashion sense, get colorful and dress as Betsey Johnson. Pairing fun, bright fabrics and prints is quintessential Betsey, and who doesn’t want to look like they’re always down for a good time? You can wear heels or flats, just make sure they’re bold. Throw on a tulle skirt and weave in a few dozen braids into your hair at the roots. Feel free to cartwheel down the runway, er, sidewalk.

ANTM #Throwback!!! Fash O Ween Is Upon Us, Drag it up as your favorite Icon...Lets Go!

If you’re going out with a group this halloween, insist on going as the crew from America’s Next Top Model. You would, of course, be Tyra, since you’re the undisputed leader of the pack. You can really pick any hair style of hers to imitate, or find your favorite look in wig form (since that IS what Tyra does, after all). Your hot guy friend with the strangely large pecs can be Jay, just get a nice pair of dark wash jeans and an tight gothic t-shirt. And unless he already has silver hair, which, you know, totally happens in nature, grab a can of sprayable hair color and make his head sparkle. Now Andre Leon Tally is a double whammy. He can run along side Anna Wintour for a Vogue couples costume, or be part of the ANTM crew. Long, black coat or poncho required, as well as a large fur hat, and a fun accessory like a cane. Make that a bejeweled cane. If your group is bigger than three, dress another guy friend up in heels and he can go as Miss Jay, or starve a few of your girlfriends for a few days and they can be your Top Model hopefuls. You can let them have some candy, but only if they nail their underwater evening gown shoot for sponsor Nokia.

#Throwback! On Campus: ‘Swag it’ Out with Sweats

Sweats with Swag #Throwback! On Campus: Swag it Out with Sweats

It’s 7:30 on a Monday morning. Awakened by your cell phone’s alarm, a sound that has conditioned you since week two of second semester, you jump out of bed crippled with anxiety. Scrambling to get all of your belongings together for class, you reach straight for the neon Victoria’s Secret sweats and throw your hair into a bun. More concerned about making it to class on time than looking fashion forward, you’re out the door and ready to go.

Does this pattern sound familiar? Of course it does. Having lived on a college campus, I’ve witnessed both myself and my peers fall victim to this vicious cycle. I mean, who’s thinking skinny jeans at the crack of dawn? Certainly not me. While your appearance may be the last thing on your mind the morning after a late night study/romp session, there are ways to seep your street style swag AND still be comfy.

While some of you may be a bit reluctant to splurge on loungewear, it’s an investment you want to look into. High-end lounge apparel brings more opportunity to the wearer to create a comfortable, high fashion outfit without looking sloppy. Sweats from stores like Victoria’s Secret are not only cliché and turn you into a walking billboard, but also limit the possibilities of the other elements in your outfit, as the sweats are just too bright and busy.

Nailing the sweat pants look is very simple if you can keep a couple of things in mind. Here’s a list of rules that will allow you to keep the swag in your sweats.

  1. Go for neutrals. Bright tones are too distracting and defeat the purpose of dressing down.
  2. Pair your sweats with cute shoes. Instead of plummeting your outfit deeper into the lazy spiral by throwing on Uggs or moccasins, try a pair of low-heel booties. They’re comfortable, but won’t make you look like you just rolled out of bed.
  3. Texture. Texture. Texture. Sweats can be found in various different kinds of fabrics. Try out a knitted pair to mix things up and make your outfit more interesting.
  4. Accessories seal the deal. We all know that accessories have the potential to transform a look. Adding a chic necklace to a simple outfit   can make you go from blasé to Bensoni in a matter of seconds.

POSH & Functional, Tips for Post-War Metro Wardrobe w/Space

lille tesco POSH & Functional, Tips for Post War Metro Wardrobe w/Space For most of us, closet space is always limited, especially in post-war NYC and beyond. When spring comes around and its time to throw out the old and bring in the new, it can be very hard to decide which clothing pieces should make a trip to the dumpster and which should maintain their privileged position on the hanger.

As some are constantly moving, often times from country to country, learning what items to keep and what to chuck is essential to remaining trendy without wasting space or money. In general, functional yet spacious wardrobes save us space and the best way to gain function and space is to organize your wardrobe in a way that suits your style and daily clothing needs.

There are a few things to keep in mind when beginning the process of cleaning out your wardrobe. These three tips will help you on your way to a simpler and space saving wardrobe that is in style and on budget.

1. Is that dress Stella McCartney?

Not all jackets, dresses and shoes are made equal. In most cases, the more money you spend the better quality you get and quality means longevity. Keeping designer items is a good idea for three reasons.

Firstly, these items are often classically styled, especially if in colors such as black, dark brown, camel, and navy blue. The brand oftentimes is not as important as the item itself. Clean, simple lines and patterns ensure that the item will keep you looking trendy into the future.

Secondly, fashion is cyclical. The quality of these items will see them last until they come into fashion again, usually with the added chic of vintage flare.

Thirdly, these are beautifully made items you spent your hard earned money on and they mark an important moment in your fashion evolution so give them the due they deserve.

2. Have you worn that shirt in the last 6 months?

If you don’t wear an item in your wardrobe then don’t keep it, especially if it isn’t designer. Retailers like H&M, Forever 21 and Topshop often sell very trendy items that play on a very specific style of the moment. These items last for a season or two but, when finished, should be replaced with the next big thing.

3. Who are you dressing up for?

Clothes for work, weekends and going out on the town all take up space. Its important to think about how much time you spend doing different activities. Our lives change and we stop doing activities that we once did regularly leaving a pile of unused clothes in our wardrobe. If you have a lot of evening clothes but don’t go out or dress up, then its time to make space by relieving those party dresses of their hangers.

Keep in mind that functional yet spacious wardrobes save us space by eliminating the clutter of unused and undeserving items. So now to the spring cleaning!
