Take a cue from go-go style and steal your own stage-ready look

The look: The go-gos at Marquee are outfitted to complement the programming, and that means neon colors and ’80s glasses when Redfoo hosts Party Rock Mondays or cabaret-style ensembles when Roger Sanchez heads on stage.
Steal the party rock style: Nineties neon is electric, but approach with caution. Ladies, cut up a bright tank, slip into some matching high socks, add futuristic party shades. Get started at americanapparel.com.
The look: XS dancers wear gold fringe dresses and boots to match the design and color scheme of the venue. Elaine Wynn was very involved with the original uniform concept—a look that’s both sexy and elegant.
Steal the XS-ive elegance: All-gold fashion is natural for dancers and Bond girls. Adapt the look with a black fringe version, like BCBG’s Eliot Satin-Fringe Dress ($398, bcbg.com).
The look: These lovely ladies entertain in shimmering metallic gold and leopard-print two-piece uniforms. The dancers match the venue’s exotic theme and the eye-catching 90-foot snake behind the bar.
Steal the shimmer: Don’t surrender your dignity and wear a bikini to the club. Do pair metallics with prints to steal the show at pool parties and sparkle till summer in Victoria’s Secret metallic pineapple prints (top, $20; bottom, $29; victoriassecret.com).
The look: Famed costume designer Barbara Bell created Chateau’s French-inspired go-go uniforms to match the Paris Las Vegas club’s décor and ambience.
Leave it to the pros: Think you can look club chic in a French-maid outfit? Au contraire! Let the paid employees rock French-maid style and save it for Halloween, or the privacy of the bedroom (French maid costume, $59, fredericks.com).
The look:: The Bellagio club’s dancers are adorned in glamorous, gold-beaded fringe dresses. The outfits play off the space and its high-dollar theme.
Steal the glow: From dresses and pumps to accessories and swimwear, gold shines day and night. Incorporate into your look with the Alice + Alivia Gabby Beaded Blouson Dress ($596, bergdorfgoodman.com).
Perfecto at Rain Nightclub
The look: Perfecto’s futuristic neon-tribal cut-out styles accentuate the party’s upbeat electronic energy. At Perfecto, the décor, music, dancers (and even the dancers’ hair-ography!) contribute to an out-of-this-world house experience.
Steal the hottest trend of 2099: When it comes to neon hot pants with thigh cut-outs and bare-hipped T-tops, the look hasn’t trended yet on Earth. Make it yours with a futuristic dress understated for wearability in the present, like Bebe’s zip sleeve dress in pink ($129, bebe.com).
