A Monte Carlo-themed party is a fun night to host or attend. Monte Carlo is a coastal city in South France, with its casinos known to house high rollers and very wealthy people. It is also where James Bond frequently plays in the James Bond movie franchise.
Guests at Monte Carlo are seen wearing eloquent, sophisticated evening wear that is both high-end and bold enough to turn heads. You don’t have to be a billionaire to achieve a similar high-stakes look. A Monte Carlo party is a great chance to dress up and wear something you normally wouldn't wear.
When considering what to wear, the bolder the better. Think about dressing to the nines with super glamorous looks. There is no way to be overdressed at Monte Carlo so don’t be afraid to be extravagant, as they say, go big or go home.
Find your best, most dramatic formal wear, and don’t be afraid to dress it up further with shiny jewelry and accessories.

Shine and Bling
Monte Carlo, also known as the billionaire’s playground, is filled with expensive jewelry and accessories. A Monte Carlo party is no different. Add shine and bling to your look with shiny jewelry, cuff links, and accessories.
Costume jewelry works just fine, so pick out some killer rhinestone pieces to pair with your outfit and turn heads.
Long, Fitted Dress
Floor-length dresses and ball gowns are a popular choice at Monte Carlo. They are daring while also remaining eloquent and classy. A classic black dress will help smooth out your form and show off your figure.
But don’t limit yourself to just black, like a deck of cards, red and gold will make quite the impression while fitting in with the casino theme.
Faux Fur Wrap
A faux fur wrap is just dramatic enough for a Monte Carlo party. It helps create a big look while also adding texture and drawing attention to your dress or suit. Find one that is the same color as your outfit to create a seamless, classy look.
If you feel like going retro, try a 1920s flapper girl look. Think of the Great Gatsby with the beaded dress, long strands of pearls, and lots of diamonds. Add a feather or headpiece to your look for added effect.
If you don’t own or don’t want to wear a floor-length dress, a cocktail dress is an equally stunning alternative. It is a formal look that can be just as bold, especially if you choose a form-fitting look or one with a plunging neckline.
A tuxedo is synonymous with Monte Carlo. Tuxedos are sharp and sexy, and make an impact at any event. Most people choose a dark-colored tuxedo, with an all-black one being the staple. Try a pleated dress shirt and bow tie or white pocket square, and you will look ready to become the next James Bond.
Avoid Everyday Casual Clothes
A Monte Carlo party is a nice occasion and a great time to dress to impress. Save your more casual, day-to-day clothes for another time. Take the opportunity to get dressed up and make an impact at a high-end party with a fashionable, daring look
An important part of looking eloquent and sophisticated is being well-groomed. For men, this means having clean, tidy facial hair and slicked-back hair. For women, this means a slicked-back updo or eloquent curls with carefully applied makeup.
A low-heeled dress shoe or loafer, such as a pair of Brogues has been known to symbolize class ever since the Prince of Wales popularized them in the 1930s. You will look dapper in them, and they will look great with your suit or tuxedo.
Smokey Eye and Red Lip
Like your outfit, you want your makeup to be bold. A smokey eye paired with a red lip is a classic look that is both dramatic and sexy. Pair this look with false eyelashes and sultry curls to make an impact. Don’t be afraid to add glitter and shine to your look with sparkly eyeshadow and highlighter.
Floor Length Skirt
A fabulous alternative to a ball gown is a floor-length skirt. Like a ball gown, it creates drama and impact, while also giving you more options as to how to style it. Pair it with a tight, form-fitted blouse to create a daring contrast, or pair it with a silky button-up, for a looser yet eloquent look.
Choose a high pair of stilettos for maximum effect with your outfit. High heels add height and help and elongate your legs for a sexy, daring look. They look great with a dress or a pantsuit. Choose a classic shiny black pair, or add a pop of color and drama with a bright-colored pair like red.
Elequent One Piece Romper
A more modern take on formal casino wear is a fashionable romper. A classic choice is a black romper with short sleeves and long, flowy pants that create shape and impact. A romper is also a great background to add gold and diamonds to for further shine.
What better way to shine and gleam than with a full dress made of sequins? Choose a neutral color or pastel color dress to let the sequins be the star of the show. Choose a short dress with a low neckline or a long dress with a slit on the side to be the talk of the party.
Double Breasted Suit
A great alternative to a tuxedo is a double-breasted suit. A double-breasted suit has a jacket with overlapping front flaps and symmetrical buttons to create a sharp and stylish combination. It looks great with a tie or a bow tie and a sharp pair of cuff links.
