Casual dress code, what do I wear?
With “casual dress”, anything goes. Let your comfort and the weather be your guide. Still, it’s important to use your best judgment. No matter how casual the dress, everything you wear should fit you well at your current weight, and be in good clean condition.
For The Ladies
‘Casual dress’ for women can include fashion t-shirts, peasant and cotton jersey blouses, fitted sweaters, and other tops including sleeveless, tank, and halter styles. These can be paired with denim jeans, Capri pants, shorts, or skirts. Shorts and skirts should be mid-thigh length or longer. If in doubt, match these with complementary leggings. Knee-length and maxi dresses are both great if you aren’t sure exactly how casual the venue is. Choose heels, flats, sandals or sneakers as appropriate.
For The Fellas
A casual dress code is a great occasion for designer tees and jerseys. Short or long sleeved button-up shirts are also a good choice, but even for casual dress an undershirt is a must. Denim is acceptable, as are shorts. For footwear, opt for sneakers, boots, sandals, deck shoes or canvas slip-on. If dressing for an evening event, banish white athletic socks to the back of the drawer and go for black socks only — ankle-length with shorts & sneakers, dress-length with jeans & slacks, or none at all with deck shoes or sandals.
What do men wear to nightclubs in Houston?
Male dress code is “business casual.” You don’t have to wear a tie, but dress like you are applying for a management position. No hats, tennis shoes/sandals/work boots, shorts, t-shirts, jerseys, athletic attire, denim jeans, baggy pants, etc. A collared button-down shirt and nice slacks is ideal.
Can I wear jeans to clubs in Austin?
Baggy or ripped clothes, tank tops, capris and cutoff jeans are also generally forbidden at top nightclubs in Austin. And, many venues don’t allow jeans or t-shirts.
What should I not wear?
That means nice jeans or slacks and a collared shirt for men, or a casual dress or slacks for women. For men, a sports coat is not necessary unless you are eating at a very expensive and pretentious restaurant. There are very few that fall into that category. Women can wear just about anything and be okay in Austin.

Male or female, you increase your chances of getting in and even getting the cover waived if you’re stylin’. Good-looking people are considered part of the decor.
