Compared to the ridiculous restraints of White Tie dress, a tuxedo is a pretty simple set of garments. Black Tie is only worn to events after 6 PM, by tradition.
Once upon a time, women had to wear ankle- or calf-length sleeveless evening gowns, as well as a wrap, gloves, and jewelry.
How likely are you to have to wear Black Tie dress to a casino? For men, the Black Tie Optional dress code means you can choose to follow the Black Tie guidelines above, or you can dress down a bit, wearing:.
Thankfully, semiformal attire is the same regardless of the time of day. Business formal attire is technically one rung less formal than semiformal, though sometimes the distinction between the two is difficult to make.
For women, business formal means wearing a suit or business-style dress, with a jacket and stockings, as well as heels. According to a couple of sources on the subject of business etiquette, these days the heels and the stockings are optional.
Like we said with the semiformal category, we think the attire outlined for this category is perfect for a nice evening at a casino, pretty much regardless of its caliber.
You may want to skip the tie for the man and the jacket for the woman if you find yourselves at a lower-end venue, just to be comfortable. But, for the most part, these clothes would be totally acceptable at any casino in the world.
The most common dress code category. We think most people know a business casual outfit when they see it, though it can be a little hard to define.
That means no stockings or hose for women and no ties for men. For women, the definition of business casual is pretty narrow. Women can wear a skirt, khakis, or pants.
They should wear it with a collared shirt, knit shirt, or sweater, making sure to show no cleavage. Heck, even a bolo tie will do in a pinch.
Notice that the emphasis is still on clean, nice-looking clothing, with a new emphasis on expression. The majority of US casinos require only casual wear.
Some casinos will ask you to change out of a t-shirt if it has a distasteful slogan or picture on it. The truth is, modern casinos are mostly casual places.

Like you I think a pashmina is a great addition to any outfit! It would be so nice if you could make it one day.
Would be so nice to meet you! Such a pity I did not know you yet in August as I was in California then…. Beautiful photos and the burgundy hat would go well with each piece in your travel capsule.
This was great advice! I am coming for a month to visit over the winter holidays and am unsure of what to pack for evening. Will a sweater be enough?
Also, how formal is dressing for theatre there? I never go anywhere without a pair of riding boots. So many questions, but bringing only one bag!
Thanks for being my fashion guru! If you are outside in the evening all you will need is a very light top. No need for a sweater.
You will only need a sweater or cardigan when you are inside as the aircon can be too cool. That is why cardigans are so good as you can just pop then on when needed.
Theatre dressing is not so formal. Many people wear their nicest clothes but there is also quite a lot of casual attire.
Make sure to bring a cardi aircon again. No definitely leave your boots at home. They are much too hot for Singapore! Glad to have found this post.
I am off to Singapore next week to visit my sister who lives there. Thanks so much for this advice. We live in the US — one in Denver where its hot but dry and the other in San Francisco where its cool but humid.
Lovely to get your message and great to hear you found the tips useful. If you check out the what I wore section under the style tab you get a pretty good of what I wear in Singapore too.
I look forward to connecting with you further on the site. Great info — heading to Singapore to visit my brother next week and your info re air conditioning was just what I was looking for — my pashmina will be going for sure.
The info on what to wear in different places is useful too. Thanks for the advices sylvia.. Streetstyle is very casual here so you can certainly wear those.
