Reader’s Choice: What Happens in Vegas

I have been wanting to start a regular feature in
which I respond to any questions you have, trends you’d like to see
styled, etc.

Today, I am responding to a reader request on advice for
what to wear for a casual trip to Vegas.  She wanted looks for casual
days and casual, but glitzier, nights.

When packing for a trip, it’s helpful if you can find
pieces that you can mix and match and that can go from day to night with
ease.  By being able to use pieces for multiple purposes, you minimize
what you’ll have to pack and save space in your bag for souvenirs!

Since
the trip is to the desert in the springtime, I was thinking about warm
days and somewhat chilly nights, so I selected lots of shorts
and a few layering pieces.

Here are just a few of the options I came up with:

Daytime Casual Looks
A simple denim shorts and t-shirt look is perfect for a quick trip to the Hoover Dam.

Planning a day of playing the penny slots and hitting the buffets, you’ll need a comfortable and easy look.  A cardigan will stave off the chill of air conditioning.


Evening Looks
A sequined shorts set paired with blinged out accessories says Vegas all the way.  Plus, this set will easily break up into separates to be paired with other pieces for more evening options.

For a more laid-back evening, try your hand at print mixing by pairing printed pants with tribal print heels and a brightly colored camisole.  A draped blazer on hand will keep you warm should the temperatures drop.


Day to Night OptionsPair a floaty chiffon top with printed shorts and sandals for day, then wear that same top with sequin shorts and blinged-out accessories for evening.

Jean shorts can go from day to night just as you would with your jeans.  Throw a hi-lo tee over jean shorts for day, then add a sequin top and drapey blazer for evening.

A leopard print romper makes for easy Vegas dressing.  Cute wedges and a backpack are perfect for hitting the shops.  Switch out to those trusty tribal print heels and studded bag for an evening of club-hopping.

Faux leather joggers are easy to take from day to night.  Just swap out that hi-lo tee for a dressier style and add the bling!

A few more hints for successful packing – no matter where you’re going:

  • Jewelry is small and easy to pack, so add variety and interest to your looks by changing up your jewelry.  
  • Pack with comfort in mind, and bring at least a few of your favorite pieces.  The last thing you want to do during a vacation is to be fidgeting with your clothes.
  • Choose a neutral color palette and then add color and prints from there to maximize your mix-and-match options.
