Here are some helpful tips on the do’s and don’ts of casino attire etiquette, for first timers headed for an evening of gaming.
If you’re feeling beat after a long week at work and plan to head down to Goa for a quick getaway with the girls, hitting up one of Deltin’s renowned casinos might just be the perfect pastime. Don’t let the impending monsoon rains put a dampener on your spirit or on your exciting weekend plans because the vibrant capital city of Panjim offers multiple options for fun-filled indoor entertainment, the most popular of which are Goa’s legendary casinos.
Ladies, if it’s your first time going gambling and you are thinking about dressing up for the occasion, no sweat – here’s everything you need to know. While it may not be mandatory to go all Eva Green à la Casino Royale, most establishments insist on smart casuals or dress formals for an evening at the roulette tables. In case you’re torn between that sparkly sequinned LBD and an elegant cocktail dress, check out these helpful pointers on what to wear for a night out to a casino.
#1 Amp Up the Glam Quotient
Whatever outfit you choose to wear, make sure that you bring your A-game, to outshine the casino glitz. Whether you want to hit the slot machines or simply party the night away, looking like a million bucks in a graceful evening dress will ensure that the spotlight stays on you at all times.
#2 Ditch the Denims
For women who feel more comfortable in trousers, a smart pair of dressy black pants can do just the trick. Pair them with metallic tops in standout colours like red, gold, or silver for maximum effect. If you’re going for the smart casual look, a well-fitted skirt is also a good option. The lengths can vary between maxi, mid-length and mini-skirts, but anything shorter than 10 centimetres above the knee might be considered inappropriate according to casino etiquette. But be warned: denims and corduroy are a big no-no in casinos.
#3 Go Crazy with Accessories
A fun evening at a casino is the perfect opportunity to dazzle onlookers with some bling! So put your game face on and become the poker table cynosure with some statement jewellery. Gold hoops, dangling earrings or a shimmering choker will highlight an otherwise ordinary formal black dress. Play up your look with smoky eyes, winged eyeliner and a dash of red lipstick, and you’re good to go!
#4 Steer Clear of Flats and Flip-Flops
Sky high stilettos are certainly not everyone’s cup of tea, but one can never go wrong with simple black heels. Take your pick from peep-toes, open-toes or pumps, because the heel size isn’t as important as being comfortable in your own shoes. Most luxurious casinos are stringent about the rules when it comes to footwear, but as long as you forgo the flats and flip-flops, you should be just fine.
#5 Tasteful Over Tacky, Always
Last but not the least, there are some unforgivable fashion faux pas when it comes to primping for a night out on the town. Plunging necklines are perfectly acceptable as long as they don’t put too much décolletage on display. While figure-hugging dresses accentuate curvy figures, too tight or low-cut dresses are distasteful and should be eschewed at all times. Don’t forget to top off your look with an eye-catching evening clutch to complement your outfit!
