Additional Outfits

Double Denim: Vogue Paris published an article that mentioned how brands like Stella Mccartney and Calvin Klein are bringing back double denim on the runway and we are crazy ecstatic. Stars like Zoe Kravitz, Mila Kunis and Gwen Stefani are already killing this look and it may be a smart decision to rock this look to the opera. We’d recommend wearing a denim skirt with a white button up  and pairing a denim jacket or kimono alongside the skirt. Additionally, black stilettos would ultimately end up making this outfit pop.

Faux Fur: While fur has been practically banned from the insiders in the fashion industry, faux fur is making major moves in the industry and as a matter of fact was listed as one of the most dominant trends during the fall New York Fashion Week. When deciding what to wear to the opera, opt for multicolored faux fur and rock it with skinny light wash Levis and with a tall pair of high heels. Go ahead and buy the faux fur, even Donatella versace’s rocking it.

Neon: W Magazine just recently published an article encompassing the 13 biggest fall 2018 fashion trends and boy, were there tons of uncanny, avant garde like looks to be worn constantly on and off the runway. We’ve already seen the color palette on icons like SZA and Teyana Taylor, yet we’re overzealous for new looks to come and most importantly your amazing approach to fashion and reinventing one’s self. We recommend you wearing a neon dress, to be specific, and pairing the outfit with converse sneakers.
