Now, let’s dive into the basics first from someone who lived 10 years in Vegas:

Shoes

Most visitors underestimate the amount of walking they’ll be doing. Bring a pair of comfortable shoes!  Your feet will thank you!

Buy TRENDY SNEAKERS on Amazon

Ladies, I know heels look cute to wear out to the club, but consider bringing a pair of roll-up flats in your purse for later. We wouldn’t want you walking around barefoot!

For evening events like fancy dinners or clubbing, you’ll want to step it up with some dress shoes or high heels. And here’s some good news: some hotels in Vegas have vending machines that offer foldable flats.

So, if your heels hurt, you know where to go!

Bottoms

When it comes to bottoms, you’ve got plenty of options. Skirts, shorts, pants, and jeans can all work well. But here’s a tip: avoid jeans in the summer.

Buy TRENDY SHORTS on Amazon

Trust me, it gets really hot! During those sizzling summer months, you’ll be much more comfortable in loose-fitting bottoms.

Tops

Lightweight tops are your best friends in Las Vegas, especially during the warmer months like Spring, Summer, and early Fall. Think t-shirts, tank tops, thin bodysuits, blouses, and even crop tops. They’re all great choices.

Buy TRENDY T-SHIRTS on Amazon

When the weather starts to cool down in late Fall and Winter, you’ll want to switch to long sleeves and heavier tops to stay warm.

Dresses

Anything goes in Vegas, so feel free to pack casual and dressy rompers, jumpsuits, and dresses. They’re all perfect for a night out or a casual day exploring. In the warmer months, go for looser, short-sleeve options. When winter rolls around, thicker knits and longer sleeves are the way to go.

Swimwear

If pool lounging is on your agenda, don’t forget your bathing suit and a cute cover-up. You can wear any style you like, just make sure you’re comfortable. Oh, and the sun in Vegas is super strong, so be mindful of the tan lines your swimsuit might leave.

Tip: Some hotels and resorts require reservations for pools, lounge chairs, and cabanas. So, it’s a good idea to plan ahead.

Good to know: Many pools close in winter! Check our monthly guides below with a link to each month with detailed pool information.

Outerwear

You might think you don’t need a jacket in the hot Vegas summer, but think again. Casinos and hotels often crank up the AC, so a light cardigan could come in handy. In the spring and early fall, a light jacket is just right. For late fall, consider medium-weight outerwear like a leather jacket. Believe it or not, it can get pretty chilly in the winter, so heavier jackets and coats are recommended.

Accessories

Last but not least, let’s talk accessories. They can really elevate your Vegas look. Essentials to pack include a sun hat, sunglasses, and a day bag or belt bag. These items not only add style but also offer practicality during your trip.
