Have you ever watched poker being played on TV or in person?
I have watched poker on television randomly and mostly because a couple of my friends are fans, but usually I just see it being played in person while in Vegas.

Do you have a favorite poker player?
I like youngster Peter Eastgate...and I think he occasionally dresses okay, especially for his age.

What do you think about the fashion at poker tables?'
I've noticed that the players may not be completely blamable for their bad taste in attire. I'm pretty sure their sponsors need better apparel. Most importantly, players need to look confident, relaxed, and comfortable in what they are wearing. It is easy to achieve the unique, bright, or trendy look that it seems some players are trying for without looking like you stepped off an Ed Hardy shoot, shopping in your mom's/child's/spouse's closet, or pairing every color of the rainbow.

Good rules of thumb: keep your clothes streamlined to your body, make sure they fit properly, utilize classic shapes, lines and colors while enhancing each ensemble with something fun or special to you. An outfit should be an extension of your personality. It should welcome people in, not scare them away.

What do you think would be a good look for a poker player?
If you're going to wear a suit:

If you are going casual:

If you are going for a bit of funky fun:

When wearing sponsor garb, tshirts and tanks, ladies can easily help out their outfits with proper fit and adding current accessories, a unbuttoned cardigan, a cropped leather jacket, blazer, the possibilities are endless. Don't forget to add your own personal style to current fashion trends!

The images below are great ways tshirts and casual pieces have come together to look chic and effortless.

Here are the replies from Krista L. Peck, founder and editor at Style Epiphany.

Have you ever watched poker being played on TV or in person?
Yes, I watch poker on TV since my hubby is an avid poker fan.

Do you have a favorite poker player?
My favorite poker player is Gus Hansen.

 


What do you think about the fashion at poker tables?
The fashion at poker tables includes everything from casual to formal to really bizarre.

What do you think would be a good look for a poker player?
I think the best poker player look would be something casual and comfortable like a button down shirt or tee and khakis or jeans.  While pieces of personal flavor are appreciated, over the top clothing and accessories distract me from the game.

Who do you think is the worst dressed poker player?
Hands down, the worst dressed player is Phil Hellmuth.

Have you ever watched poker being played on TV or in person?
On TV yes....can be quite addictive really.

Do you have a favorite poker player?
No I do not as winners seem to come and go very quickly, I can only see poker making more superstars though.

What do you think about the fashion at poker tables?
I think some of the players would like some fame, so try too hard to look different or cool.  Some of them could seriously do with some fashion tips.

What do you think would be a good look for a poker player?
I honestly think that being you and not trying too hard.  Make yourself look as natural as possible.  On the other hand you could wear clothing that is appalling on the eyes to distract other players from looking or watching you too much.

Who do you think is the worst dressed poker player?
Justin Phillips in a vest is by far the worst.  Is a vest necessary when all playing rooms are air conditioned?
