#Bestdressed for Vegas

One of my friends is planning to celebrate her birthday this year with a group trip to Las Vegas. Since it is never too early to start planning outfits I took this chance to put together my Ultimate Vegas Outfit. I wanted to do something a little different while still incorporating the typical Vegas glitz and glamour. Statement earrings and a fabulous clutch are some of the defining factors of the outfit, which I tried to keep simple, classy and still totally fun. 

For a day-to-night look I chose coated leggings with a ruffled tank and glam earrings. This sexy-casual style is perfect for walking the strip, grabbing lunch on the patio at Olives, and checking out the casino at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The leggings and tank with flat slip-on shoes ensure comfort all day, but the edgy leathery look, fluttery ruffles, and glittering earrings nod to Vegas style and will keep you feeling confident at the poker table. And in case anyone doubted, the #bestdressed clutch makes a playful statement, suitable for the notorious Vegas "anything goes" approach to style. I even made sure to have the necessary accessories on hand to transition this look to a night out at Ghostbar or Hakkasan: all it needs is a pair of eye-catching heels and a jewel encrusted clutch to take the look up a level. A brighter lip and collar necklace don't hurt either for a touch of glam suitable for the dance floor.

Top: Ella Moss (similar: 1/2/3). Leggings: H&M (1/2). Shoes: Elk. Clutch: Deux Lux at DSW. Earrings: similar 1/2. Lip: e.l.f "Pink Umbrellas."

I had so much fun with this that I put together a second outfit for an evening out in Vegas.
For an elegant look suitable for dinner at STK and a show, a tight lace dress is a great option. Honestly, I wish the skirt length were a little longer on this one to make it more sophisticated, but with a blazer layered over it and pointed black heels it's a great choice for a dressy dinner. I added a blingy clutch and bejeweled drop earrings to complete this show-stopping look for a night out in Vegas.

Thank you to for inviting me to participate in creating the Ultimate Vegas Outfit. Check out the various Las Vegas hotels if you're planning a trip or want to learn more about all they have to offer.

Look 2: Dress: ModCloth (similar 1/2/3) Blazer: Urban Outfitters. Shoes: Vince Camuto. Clutch: similar. Earrings: J. Crew (1/2/3). Lip: BareMinerals "Risk It All."
