If you’ve never watched James Bond, and not felt the desire to dress up and visit a fancy casino, then perhaps it’s time to start watching. Sadly, unlike the celebrities of the world, we normal folk only get the chance to bring our inner red-carpet style to the forefront once in a blue moon - maybe at a wedding or if you’re still relishing your youth, what with proms or university balls. Of course, if you want to dress up at home on a Saturday night, don’t let us stop you.
Nevertheless, a visit to a casino is an excellent reason to get glamorous, and what’s more, they are open all year round, which is far more convenient than waiting for a black-tie event invitation. Now, you can practise your betting skills using online casinos to play roulette, blackjack and other games in order to make sure you've got the rules and gameplay down before you dress up and head to the casino. Without further ado, here are four essential fashion items that will set your casino outfit on fire, enough to rival James Bond in a tuxedo.
The most important part. Your dress, or potentially even a trouser suit to really channel 007, needs to turn heads. Don’t be afraid to go bold, whether that’s with a bright colour or a bit of sparkle. Then again, classic styles also work. An elegant little black dress has a sultry and sophisticated feel to it and can really make you own the room. The length can range from being long to short, just above the knee. Whatever dress you decide on, it should be form-fitting, formal, and most importantly, make you feel amazing and bring out your personality.
Almost as important as the dress as you need something to walk in. Heels are necessary, of course - but check you can walk in them first. It wouldn't be very elegant if your entrance to the casino involved tripping over. Depending on the length of your dress, it could be that certain shoe styles are better than others, so if you’ve chosen your dress, it’s a good idea to bring it with you when trying on shoes. In terms of colour, shoes don’t have to match the dress. Just make sure that they complement each other.
Casino trips are a luxurious evening affair, which also happens to be the colder part of the day. For getting in and out of cars to reach your destination, it’s wise to bring a layer with you. A good casino should have a cloakroom too, so there’s no worry about keeping an eye on your jacket all the time. For warmer evenings, a pashmina will do the trick and adds to the chic appearance. For something more substantial, a trench coat, or even a cloak, will allow you to enjoy one of the dramatic movie scenes where you take off your coat and everyone gasps in delight at your beautiful dress.
Last, but not least, the accessories. These extra items that add a special something to your outfit. Handbags are not ideal on a night out at the casino, as you don’t want to be pulling them over your shoulder all night. Clutch bags are much easier to deal with, and you can fit all the essentials you need for an evening out in them.
As for jewellery, you can't go wrong with glitz and glamour. Big diamond earrings, statement necklaces and bracelets will bring together an outfit for a night at the casino you will never forget.
