A night out with friends is a special treat. A themed event adds to the excitement. Casino nights are a popular option for modern adult parties. You may think your closet does not house the appropriate attire for such an occasion. Look again, with a little accessorizing you may be more prepared than you think to take on the night life.
Casino night should take you back a little bit to a time when social outings required a bit more preparation, and a lot more glam. Think about the roaring twenties and embrace the free flowing expression of long ago. Forget the natural look for this occasion, accessories are a must for men and women alike.
Ladies, take time to get your hair done and make sure to add something glitzy like a sequined hair band or sparkly faux flower. Whatever your day job, this is not the time to flaunt a tight bun or professional look. Tousle those curls and bring out your wild side. Your little black dress could take on a whole new look with a fancy belt or colorful brooch. While pantyhose might not ever make a full comeback, casino night is the time to bring them out of hiding. They add that little extra to a well-planned outfit. Now, every woman’s favorite part of dressing up usually lies in the shoe choice. Leave those boring black heels in the back of your closet and use the shoes to add a splash of color and mystery. The higher the heel the better. Jewelry will add the final touch. We all have that necklace or bracelet that is just too big or glamorous for daily wear. No one will think you are tacky for flaunting these items at casino night. Be ready to be the jewel on your dates arm. Show a little skin, but keep yourself covered enough to be classy. A low back on the dress or a side slit is a perfect way to keep the men looking. Make up is a must. Keep your face simple but don’t leave the house without that bright red lipstick and smoky eyes. Pamper yourself and get ready to shine.
Gentlemen, get ready to learn about accessories. While suits may not seem like the most exciting fashion statement, they add an element of class that is not to be underestimated. If you simply cannot commit to the plain black suit, a pinstripe is an excellent option. Keep in mind you are probably going to peel off that jacket as the evening activity heats up, so make sure your shirt is well starched. A set of suspenders will really add to the look. Maybe your jewelry collection is a little sparse, find a friend with a nice pair of cuff links to complete your look. Maybe you inherited a big gold bracelet and it has not seen the light of day in 30 years. Clean it up and make it shine, because this is the perfect occasion to get noticed. Men have a chance at this type of event to go the extra mile and have some fun dressing up.
Casino nights fundraiser is something to look forward to and your outfit will be something you may not get to wear on any other occasion. Make the most of the evening by playing along with the dress code to get the full experience. You will be glad you did.
