Casinos have, historically, been a prominent feature in the playgrounds of the rich and famous, allowing the most luxurious venues to demand their guests be glamorous each night.

Not only does this raise the class of the casino, but it also creates a much more luxurious experience for its visitors. 

There are many luxurious and famous casinos around the world, dotted around Las Vegas, Macau, South Africa, and Monaco. If one of them is on your to-do list when you’re on your travels, you’ll want to make it look like you belong. To truly embrace the occasion and the venues, you’ll want to look classy in every way – from your dress sense to your general demeanour.

So, let’s dig into it.

How to dress for your trip to the casino

A lot of casinos have a dress code of smart, and so, men have to come in a suit and proper shoes while women can attend in anything that looks smart; from cocktail attire to business and semi-formal. As a general rule, you’re to avoid shorts, jeans, trainers, or sports brands.

However, at the absolute epitome of luxury, casinos will either have an ongoing black-tie policy or stage major events, during which you’re asked to come dressed accordingly. For men going to such an event, has developed this black-tie guide, encouraging readers to consider a dinner jacket, dark trousers, a dress shirt, cufflinks, formal evening shoes, long black socks, a bow tie, and a waistcoat.

Women who want to know what to wear for a black-tie event can turn to, but unfortunately, it gets much more complicated. A lot of attire decision-making comes down to how formal the host intends the black-tie event to be. But, generally speaking, it requires one to wear a long dress made of an evening formal fabric, such as silk, lace, or velvet. Sometimes a cocktail dress will make the cut; other times a floor-sweeping gown may be required.

Pulling off the demeanour

Those who attend glitzy casino events are presumed to smart, classy, and suave. The right dress will get you most of the way there but, for that last hurdle, you’re going to need to be at least competent at the games. As such, before going into the casino, you’ll need to brush up on the rules.

During these events, slot machines are somewhat taboo as they distinctly lack the class present with table games and their croupiers. Learning the strategies and counting required to beat the game of blackjack will take months, even years to get under your belt, which is one of the reasons why roulette is such a good option.

Roulette oozes class and yet it is so simple to play. Originating in its present form in the glamorous city of Paris, learning roulette is relatively easy. Each round, you place chips on outcomes, such as numbers, colours, odds or evens, wait for the wheel spin, and then see if you’ve won. Of course, there are more intricacies than that to understand, but by sampling the live offerings at you’ll begin to see that, in essence, it’s a very easy game to understand.

The classic game of roulette is the best table game to play if you want to maximise the impact of your smart attire. Playing is simple yet potentially lucrative, it can look skilful if you go on a winning streak. And, for your own enjoyment and satisfaction, it’s very entertaining to watch the ball bounce around the wheel to then nestle in the right pocket.

So, if you’re off to one of the world’s finest and most luxurious casinos, be sure to wear the appropriate attire and brush up on how to play the games. You can clad in the finest garments in the world but, if you don’t understand the games, you’ll look like a tad out of place.
