How to look the part when going to the casino

How to look the part when going to the casino

Going to a casino shouldn’t just be a field trip. It should be an event. There used to be a time when going to the casino was treated as an excuse to wear your most expensive everything and stay out until the next morning. Well, it can still be like that. Dressing up to go to the casino is great fun and it makes the experience so much more interesting. With the right outfit and an active imagination, you could step into your favourite Las Vegas films. So, here are some ideas for dressing the part:

The Poker Champ
There are a lot of excellent female poker players in the professional scene. Of course, all of them have unique personalities and styles, but you notice a couple of common traits here and there when you watch the competitions. Some of the richest female poker players, for example, all bring similar accessories with them when they compete that help them play better and stay focused. So, if you want to emulate the look of a poker champion you’re going to need some designer sunglasses, a hoodie or badge with your sponsor’s logo on it (preferably a poker website) and some shimmery nail polish and rings to distract the other people at the table. If they’re looking at your hands then they won’t notice if you let your poker face slip. For some added realism, bring your ipod to listen to at the tables. You’ll often see poker players with their earphones in while they play because background noise distracts them from the game. Also, if you’re going to rock the casino as a poker champ it might help if you actually know how to play poker first, so make sure you read Ladbrokes’s poker strategy guide before you start putting your look together. There’s no better accessory for a poker champ look than some killer poker skills.

Going traditional
Traditional casino fashion was all about sophistication, glamour and class and although casinos these days allow more casual attire, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take advantage of the opportunity to get your glam on. You’re going to need a dress that’s tight, glittery, possibly transparent, and for a more classic look it should reach the floor. Once you’ve got the dress then move onto the accessories, which should look just as expensive as your dress, if not even more expensive. Diamonds and pearls are always welcome at a casino and if you manage to match them with some long gloves and a fur coat then you have nailed the casino fashion. 
Casino Night Out
The Bond girl
‘The Bond girl’ is the hardest look to recreate because it’s about more than just the clothes. The Bond girl get up is all about attitude. You need to look like you’re hiding a pistol in your garter belt. You’ve got to look dangerous, but in a subtle way. Like the traditional casino fashion, a long sexy dress is the traditional attire with the difference being that you have to dial the sexy up to ‘11’. You should introduce yourself as having an exotic name like ‘Ivanna Kizzyuu’ and wear sharp, dark eyeliner. You get bonus points if you drink straight vodka and know how to fly a helicopter.

I got married in Las Vegas so have been to my fair share of Casinos, some you dress up and some are a bit more relaxed. Have you ever been to a Casino?

I am a huge fan of Soap and Glory and anything with Sugar Crush is it has me rushing out to buy it because both Beautyking and I literally love the scrub and the shower gel. That said, if you love the Soap and Glory star buy, which lets face it is always amazing and I have bought it every year since I can remember either for myself or as a gift.
Soap & Glory The Whole Glam Lot
This year The Whole Glam Lot which is packed full of so many products, ten in total and all huge sizes goes on sale this FRIDAY from 9am, so if you want it, you need to be superquick. The products come encased in a carry case which is a lot like carry on luggage. What I love is that it is a multi-pink geometic pattern which catches your attention and basically shouts 'Buy Me' at you as you walk past it.

Want to know what is inside the case? Well here is the entire list with the size of each product:
