Wondering what to wear for your first Vegas trip? I bet ya!
First thing first, set the right expectation. Trust me, even the most disciplined person you’ve met can go unbelievably wild in this adult treasure land.
Famously known as the sin city, Vagas is packed with all the fun things we expected and NOT expected. So ladies, make sure you have all kinds of outfits for all possible occasions in Vegas!
From casual sightseeing looks to sensual nightclub outfits, I’ve got you all covered. That said, this article is for my curvy queens.
Ahead are the 9 plus-size vegas outfit ideas with some dos and donts.
1. WEAR BRIGHT HUE WHEN WALKING THE VEGAS STRIP
First thing first, Vegas summer is notoriously hot. From the end of June to September, the temperature can easily exceed 90°F.
Believe it or not, the vegas strip is longer than you expect. That said, if you want to fully enjoy sightseeing under the baking sun, going for something lightweight and flowy is a no-brainer.
To echo the neon-soaked Vegas strip, leave your white and black shirt at home and throw on a bright orange top!
For a failproof look, team the retro color block halter top with hot jeans and chunky sneakers just work wonders. Trust me, a dash of bright tone goes a long way in Vegas.
2. WHEN IN DOUBT, GO FOR ROMPER DURING THE DAY
I don’t know about you but when I pack my Vegas trip, I know it’s time for my rompers to shine.
Featuring the lightweight fabric, loose cut and waist-cinching design, this is how you look flattering with minimal effort. Whether you team it with sneakers or slipper sandals, it just screams the summer vacay vibes.
Instead of the plain black romper, let’s consider some bold prints and new hues cause Vegas deserve it.
If you want to add a dash of spiciness, a zebra print romper is never too much!
3. STAY COMFY AND CHIC FOR POOLSIDE PARTY
If you go to Vegas without joining a poolside party, you are missing out.
The eccentric beats, abundant sunlight, and all the fun and laughter, together with it just scream the hype is real.
For your ensemble, again, go for fun lovely hues to echos the vibes.
Don’t feel guilty girls, it’s okay to admit we sometimes wear swimsuits for the Instagram shoot instead of actually go for a swim.
If you wanna chill on the sun lounger, a sheer poncho or coverup just add a dash of darling to your ensemble and hide the belly impeccably.
Together with a wide beam straw hat, it just boosts the aesthetic tenfold.
4. GO SEQUIN FOR A VEGAS CASINO NIGHT
To make a bold statement for the clubbing girls’ night, go for a sequin dress. I know many plus-size ladies think sequins are off-limits as the glitter can have an exaggerating effect on the body.
But come on, it’s Vegas and it’s the time you don’t want to hold back yourself anymore!
To balance off the boldness, reach for a flattering neckline can greatly help. Go for off-shoulder and low V neck to put your shoulder line in the spotlight, this just looks so feminine and put together.
Plus, it helps draw eyes vertically and make you look slimmer in general.
So, it’s time to get out of your comfort zone and add a dash of sparkle to your Vegas night!
5. GLAM UP THE CLUBBING LOOK AS A PLUS SIZE BAE
As we all know, clubbing in Vegas is just another level. The extravagance and wildness are real.
But if you think a sequin dress is not your style, no worries as you can always go classy and sensual on another hand.
For a nice transition from a fancy restaurant to a nightclub, a lace bodysuit and bodycon skirt can never go wrong.
As your dinner place can be chilly, you can always throw on a blazer for a decent look. And when you are ready for a fun dancing night, take off the outerwear and Viola! You are instantly party-ready.
For a classy look, a sleek silk dress is never out of style for the luxurious nightclub.
I will especially go for the one with a ruched design so it can cover my belly area effortlessly. The peplum dress is another perfect choice as well!
6. ALWAYS OPT FOR THE CHUNKY HEELS FOR COMFORT
When it comes to footwear, forget all the stereotypes from TV episodes where the girls are wearing sparkly stilettos in Vegas from day to night and still look amazing.
That’s simply not true. If you don’t want to look miserable and grumpy at the end of the day, stilettos are the big No-nos.
For daytime, go for comfy sneakers and side sandals when you are walking down the stripe and do the sightseeing.
If you want something fancy like rhinestone heels for the nightclubbing, I get it but please opt for chunky high heels. I will also suggest you bring a pair of flats with you just in case.
And the last tip, don’t ever bring new shoes to your Vegas trip, this is certainly not the best timing to do that.
7. KEEP DECENT AND FUN FOR A VEGAS BUSINESS TRIP OUTFIT
Despite the magnificent casinos and luxury hotels, the convention halls in Vegas are gigantic.
So yes, Vegas is also the hot spot for all international exhibitions and conferences.
If you are going for a Vegas business trip, keep it formal but not boring. Whether it’s a body-flattering peplum sleeveless top or bright orange blazer, this just shows you are as stylish as you are professional at work.
If you want a good transition from conference to play night, wear a bodycon dress underneath the blazer just seal the deal.
8. OPT FOR A STATEMENT PIECE FOR WINTER TIME
If you are coming to Vegas in winter, don’t forget the temperature can vary drastically from daytime to nighttime as it’s a desert area.
While it’s sunny and mild for the day, at night it can down to 32 °F. That said, layering is the key, and please don’t hesitate to throw on a statement jacket.
To keep things ultra-chic, a sequin bomber jacket or faux leather moto jacket would be ideal.
And if you want to pull off a killer look, consider an underbust corset belt to flaunt your curves!
9. FINISH YOUR VEGAS LOOK WITH ACCESSORIES
Ladies, it’s finally the time to dust out your bold jewelry piece for the Vegas trip! If not now, when? It’s the perfect opportunity to full glam so you better bring your A-game.
Whether you want to grunge down your look with a chunky gold necklace or embrace the tropical vibes with beaded floral earrings, the choice is yours.
As a girl with a chubby face, big earrings are my favorite as they help draw attention away from my face.
I mostly find success on the long line earrings, it just elongates my face and makes it appear to be smaller by comparison!
