Travel Advice: Should You Wear That Outfit in Vegas?
On one of our many Las Vegas trips, my friends and I were having brunch at the Mirage buffet when we saw a guy in the most awesomely bad shirt:
I’m not a gynecologist, but I’ll take a look.
On most guys, we would find it pathetic. On this guy, with his sweet Tom Selleck mustache and sheepish demeanor, we found it hilarious!
“I’m only allowed to wear this shirt in Vegas,” he confessed to us.
That brings up the question: should you wear that outfit in Vegas?
You know what outfit I’m talking about.
I’m talking about that provocative outfit you could never get away with wearing at home.
Don’t do it.
First of all, Vegas is the most popular vacation destination in America. Sure, it’s not home, but there’s a pretty decent chance that you could run into someone you know — a coworker, a relative, or a friend of your parents’. Would you want them to see you in that outfit?
Second, if you think you’ll be the hottest person there, you’re wrong. Vegas is crawling with models, Los Angeles socialites, and high-class escorts. We’re talking Heidi Montag levels of plastic surgery. The girls with the giant implants will get the attention. Not you.
Third, it’s a desperate ploy for attention. Have some self-esteem, ladies. Really.
Yes, Vegas is a place for fashion. But you can do fashion in a positive way! My friends and I like to go all out — and we do that by buying cute Vegas dresses throughout the year, spending far too much time on our hair, trying out fake eyelashes, even swapping clothes on occasion.
Just don’t wear that risque outfit. You’ll be glad you didn’t.
