So you’re off to Las Vegas and you plan on checking out the nightclubs (obviously). We’ve been around the block a few times (literally during our club crawls in Las Vegas) and if we could give you one piece of advice, it would be to obey the dress code. While we would also suggest checking out a club’s website for specific dress code info, here are a few tips to steer you in the right direction.

1. Don’t dress like you’re going to the gym.

While there may be minor variances in nightclub dress codes, pretty much any well-known club on the strip demands an “upscale” look, and they all forbid athletic gear. In other words, no sneakers, tracksuits, shorts or the like are allowed. Don’t even think about it.

2. Forget about the “gangsta” look.

Baggy pants, sunglasses, and “excessive jewelry” are also frowned upon. For the most part, jeans are universally okay, but they can’t be ripped or ill fitting. Similarly, some places don’t permit hats, while others do. When we say hat, we mean fedoras and berets might be okay. If you get turned away for wearing a baseball cap, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

3. Don’t overlook your shoes.

A few places require dress shoes, most clubs are fine with boat shoes or clean Converse, and nearly every nightclub in Las Vegas forbids sandals and sneakers. And gals, think twice before wearing those five-inch stilettos. Yes, they’re hot, and no, they aren’t banned (as nice as that might be sometimes), but they will kill your feet. Just about every nightclub and casino frown upon guests who take their shoes off, so try to pick something that is comfortable as well as stylish.

4. Leave the logos at home.

No one goes to a nightclub for a relaxing, comfortable night out. Guests are expected to dress like they want to see and be seen, and a shirt that says “Olympic Drinking Team” does not fit that image.
