Dressing in 105+ degrees

How do you dress up/and shoes... in 105 plus degress in daytime without looking like you are about to take a plunge in the pool?

Also how soon in the evenings does it get little cooler?

We are goiing to be there for 3 days and its 106 - 107 degress both days! Hope we can still do some walking to get to the main hotels..

the plan is to do mainly the mid section hotels of the strip.

We've been there several times in the throes of summer. I usually wear built-in-bra tank tops with shorts and carry a lightweight sweater for when we're inside. I need support for my feet when walking all day, so I wear Keds with my orthotic inserts (really - I'm not that old, just like to not have foot pain!). Even if I could, I don't know if I'd wear sandals - I don't like to have 'dirty' feet so I'd probably wear sneaks of some sort.

DH wears a button-down (Hawaiian-style) shirt and shorts. Tevas or sneaks (he's not as picky about his feet! ;->).

Hope this helps!

I personally spend the summer in cotten, loose, sundress with sandles or flip flops. Key is loose and cotton. And if it is 106 during the day, it may get down to 80 something after dark. So same look for evening just with heels. Personally I have no clue why anyone would go walking around when it is 106 outside.

I go every year in Aug. and what I wear is capris with light weight t- or top during the day or a sundress, carry a shrug for indoors since air conditioning can be too cold . I wear FitFlops both day and night. They have a slight wedge heel so they look good with capris, pants or dresses.

I don't like sneakers because they're too hot and sometimes the sidewalk is so hot you imagine your shoes are melting. lol

It's not necessarily much cooler at night 80+ degrees.

The few years I went in July it cooled down to 98 degrees at midnight. That's why I don't go there anymore in the summer months. I love heat but that is just to hot for me.

it will still be 90+ degrees after dark (I remember being at the Bellagio fountain near midnight and it was so nice when the hot breeze blew some mist on us)

even at 10PM (2 hours after sunset) we had to have AC on in the car - thought we could just drive with windows down but was still too hot

Agree loose clothing is the key. No tight tee-shirts. Button up shirts are much more comfortable. Hat and sunglasses. If you were working outside in this weather (used to live in Bakersfield, CA, this weather was typical in the summer), you want to be covered. But for just a quick jaunt outside between casinos, shorts and short sleeved shirts are fine.

Stay inside while you can. You could get all the way from Mandalay Bay to Fashion Show Mall and only have short stretches outside. That can be its own problem, though, since they keep most inside area in Vegas at freezer temperature.

Sunblock not a bad idea either if you are out on the strip, light colored clothing and hydration, of course.

Just checked a 10 day forecast and there is no mention of temps close to that high during that period?
