Attending the opera is a special event, so it takes time to figure out what to wear. The previously formal opera dress codes have greatly relaxed these days, so dressing too classy is not obligatory anymore. Actually, you can wear everything you feel comfortable in, but still, it’s a great opportunity to dress to impress. That means you should leave your jeans and casual sneakers at home and look for a high-class outfit.
It’s best to wear something on the formal side. Think about patterned midi skirts, chic white blouses, modern cocktail dresses, floor-length gowns, and bold pants. If you are coming straight from work, think about business casual or smart casual. It can get rather cold in the theater, so consider an extra layer – a cardigan, shawl, statement coat, jacket, fur stole, or a blazer.
