  • Do people still get all fancy-pants for opera? I bet a skirt or some nice slacks and a nice top would be fine. Put your hair up and do your make-up a little more dramatically, and you'll be good to go.

  • Umm do you have a funky jewelery piece? Wear all black with a pair of cute flats or dress shoes you have , pull your hair into a simple pony tail and have your funky jewelery speak for itself

  • I've never been to the opera before, but I would think that black would be entirely appropriate. A black skirt or pants and a black top. Maybe you could dress it up with some pearls or sparkly jewelry.

  • I would just wear black or brown pants.. with a dressy top at least. If you have any cute accessories that would be good. Flats would work for shoes. I've never been to an opera but I bet it would be fun. Hope you have lots of fun : ]

  • Wear your hair up and if you have a black sequined top with a black pencil skirt is fine. You can also use a balck coctail purse with beading. If not just use balck. I am so happy for you. Have a wonderful time. You can wear red lipstick or if not a rich gloss and some bronzer.
