While the dress code for the opera has gotten a bit more relaxed over time, this certainly doesn’t mean that you can show up in your athleisure best. If your weekend plans involve Dubai Opera, you should be dressed to kill. A venue this special calls for posh yet cool and contemporary silhouettes. Long and clean lines are a tried-and-tested formula for looking instantly chic, and this can be taken up a notch with playful details like feathers and ruffles.
It’s important to stick to the rules without going too far outside the box. For example, a tuxedo dress in orange is unexpected but just as chic, while a maxi dress with an open back is a nice surprise. Statement accessories are also a must; a faux-fur scarf or an embellished mini bag will make for a great conversation starter during intermission. Here, Savoir Flair has compiled several outfits for you to draw inspiration from as well as the pieces to shop for your operatic debut.
