what to wear in las vegas during the day

Las Vegas is a city that has several different personalities. You can dress for the casinos and clubs, or you can dress for the desert heat. The best thing to do is to find something that works for you and your style.

If you’re going to be spending a lot of time in the casinos, you can dress up a little more than if you are just exploring downtown Las Vegas. Some people prefer to wear jeans and t-shirts when they go out at night, while others like to wear more formal clothes that might be appropriate for dining in one of the many restaurants that surround the casinos.

A vest

If you’re going to be spending a lot of time in Las Vegas, you might find yourself needing some extra layers. And if you’re looking for ways to add style and flair to an outfit without sacrificing function, then the vest is your best bet. A vest is a great way to layer up while still staying cool; it can make all the difference between feeling like a cool breeze or being sweltering hot. In addition, if it’s wintertime, nothing beats throwing on a heavy hoodie and some sweatpants—or even just jeans—to stay warm and comfy while still keeping up with the latest fashion trends.

But what if it’s summertime? Well don’t worry! Just throw on an open button-down shirt (or maybe even no shirt at all), roll up your sleeves and let those abs shine through! Or maybe even consider wearing some shorts underneath that lightweight blazer for extra protection from those mean old UV rays.

A romper

For daytime wear, a romper is a great choice. They’re comfortable and easy to move around in, but they also look extremely stylish. If you’re not sure what a romper is, it’s basically a one-piece outfit that looks like its own dress: it has short sleeves and legs (or no sleeves or legs), and it fastens up at the front with buttons or zippers. It’s usually made from cotton or linen material—both of which are very breathable and make for great travel clothes—but some are made from polyester or rayon as well.

The best part about rompers? You can dress them up or down depending on what kind of event you’re going to! If you’re headed out with friends for lunch at one of Las Vegas’ many upscale restaurants like Nobu Matsuhisa Restaurant & Bar for sushi rolls or The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian® Las Vegas Resort & Casino for gelato, opt for something colourful like denim shorts underneath your overalls with some simple sandals on your feet instead of heels.

Jeans and a T-shirt

It’s no wonder that the classic look of jeans and a T-shirt has made a comeback. The combination is timeless, comfortable, and easy to put together. As long as you don’t pair it with sneakers or sandals (or even worse, flip-flops!), it works well in both casual and more formal situations.

If you’re going on a hike or doing any kind of outdoor activity while you’re in Las Vegas during the day, this could be your go-to outfit. If not—and even if so—it’s likely that you’ll spend some time outdoors exploring the city (or just sitting by your hotel pool). A pair of jeans and an oversized white tee can be dressed up with accessories like high heels or boots for evening wear too!

Wearing a hat

A hat is a great way to keep your head and face protected from the sun during Las Vegas’s hot days. If you choose to wear a cap or visor, make sure it covers the top of your ears. A hat also can provide warmth, which is beneficial if you plan on spending time outdoors during your trip. Finally, a stylish piece like a fedora or wide-brimmed hat is perfect for expressing yourself with personal style while keeping cool in the heat!

A jean jacket with a chambray shirt and shorts

A jean jacket is a great layering piece to wear over a shirt or dress. It’s casual but also looks good with shorts and maxi skirts. If that doesn’t sound like much of an improvement, remember that you’re in Vegas! You want to look like you’re headed out for a night on the town without going overboard.

I recommend pairing it with chambray because they go together so well and they both look great with denim. You can pair your mid-length or maxi dress with either one of these pieces, depending on how formal you want to be (or not).

A striped maxi dress with a faux leather jacket

Striped maxi dresses are a great option for summer, but they can be tricky to wear in Vegas. It’s important to keep your legs covered at all times! If you’re planning a day out in the sun, try pairing this look with a faux leather jacket. This will keep you warm while still showing off your cute little dress. You could also try wearing jeans or black shorts underneath it if you’re feeling more comfortable than usual.

Dressing for comfort is key.

Dressing for comfort is key, because you’ll be doing a lot of walking and standing in the Las Vegas heat. You want to make sure your shoes are comfortable, since you’ll likely be wearing them all day long. In addition to being sure they fit, it’s important to choose shoes that are lightweight and breathable so your feet don’t get too hot or too cold.

While we’re talking about clothing choices, let me take this opportunity to give you my two cents on fashion while traveling: Don’t overthink it! If you hate wearing jeans with sneakers or a blazer with shorts (and I do), leave those items at home and opt for something more suitable for your trip—like dresses made from fabric that dries quickly after getting wet from a sudden downpour or shorts made from quick-drying material like nylon ripstop fabric that doesn’t soak up water like cotton does.


As you’ve seen, there are plenty of ways to dress for the day in Las Vegas. If you want to keep it simple, stick with jeans and a t-shirt or a tank top. But if you have time to get dressed up and go out, then by all means do so! You can also wear whatever makes sense for where you’re headed: maybe an outfit with lots of colors that will draw attention at an event or just something comfortable like jeans and sneakers for exploring around town. Whatever works best for your trip!
