But which event at the casino will Jack and Rose be attending when they meet at the bottom of the beautiful staircase or are those days long gone? While most casinos in the world offer you a relaxed attire, there are still occasions that you can show off your wardrobe.

The Most Formal Bow Tie

The white tie dress code is the smartest dress code that you will ever be required to dress in at a casino, or anywhere for that matter. That is if you are going to go to an incredibly formal event at the This is even smarter than the famed 007.

Men are required to wear black tails, and a crisp white shirt that is stiffened in the front. Your pants should have a satin stripe down the sides and on your feet are black socks and leather shoes. Of course, the outfit is rounded off with gloves, cufflinks and a white bow tie. For ladies this requires you to wear a floor length evening gown with high heels. Long gloves on and a clutch purse. Lavish jewellery and a beautiful tiara is even allowed.

The second most formal dress code would be the black tie event. The events at the casino for black tie will almost always be after 18:00 whereas white tie can be at any hour.
