With last night’s Met Gala firmly on our minds, we are being drawn towards all things opulent.
Defined as sumptuous and luxurious, opulent dressing was all over the Met steps.
With ‘Gilded Glamour and White Tie’ being the theme of the festivities, it is no surprise that opulence was the flavour of the night.
From embellishments to ruffles to blinding metallics, the stars took the theme and ran with it.
And with weddings and events filling our calendars over the coming months, we are looking to the fashion extravaganza for inspiration.
Thankfully, our favourite online stores are aiding our opulent aspirations. ASOS Edition provides fashion forward options at a slightly higher price point and whatever your style, there is something there for you.
We especially love the green sequin and feather mini dress that will suit all forms of summer nuptials.
Meanwhile, Zara, Rixo and Sister Jane are doing opulence in serious style.
Unfortunately, to emulate the style of this year’s Met Gala, you will have to spend a little more, but remember, these are dresses you will wear forever.
Whatever the occasion, whatever the month, they will always make a statement. And that’s what opulence is all about.
