Ever the fashionista, Sexi Soprano Jennifer Rowley wowed audiences at Michigan Opera Theatre’s season preview on July 22 with both her singing and her glamorous look. What’s better than a pretty print for an outdoor concert? Here’s how you can get her look for your own upcoming event.

1. Eliza J Floral Print Halter Maxi Dress (Regular & Petite), sizes 2-16 regular and petite, $158

I personally love this dress because the halter top is adjustable and leaves a chic bow draped across the back. The cinching at the waist adds definition to an otherwise billowing maxi dress, and the silhouette of the dress adds height to its wearer. Pair it with some strappy wedges and head out to sing at your cousin’s wedding or at an afternoon tea recital. Buy it at Nordstrom here.

2. Vince Camuto Floral Halter Dress, sizes 4-14, $101

If you’d prefer something more waist-defining, I absolutely adore this piece because of the statement bow. The metal, halter neckline acts as a support necklace that adds bling to the outfit while keeping the dress from losing its shape as the afternoon wears on. The polyester makes it an easy dress to pack in your carry on, and everyone will love your rendition of Meine Lippen, sie küssen so heiß in this flirty number! Available at Dillard’s here.

3. Ginger Fizz High Neck Dress With Asymmetric Skirt, sizes 2-10, $75

Are you more of a Carmen? This sexy little number shows off your best attributes without revealing too much of your inner gypsy. It is another polyester dress that travels well and the asymmetrical skirt adds character to a sweet print hinting to your rival, Micaëla. Wear it for the donor party or an evening soiree. Available at ASOS here.

4. Ralph Lauren Silk Floral Halter Dress, sizes 00-18, $175

If you prefer something shorter, this fun Ralph Lauren piece is bright and bouncy. The ruffled hem and silk material are ultra feminine with an interior lining for extra comfort and coverage. Who can resist your rendition of “Batti batti” when you look this cute? Buy it from Ralph Lauren in stores or online here.

5. White House Black Market MOCK NECK KEYHOLE INSTANTLY SLIMMING DRESS, sizes 00-16, $160

If floral patterns aren’t your thing, keep cool in this gorgeous white body con dress. With built in shapewear, it is sure to flatter every body type. The keyhole provides a peekaboo moment with a neckline that could otherwise be considered conservative. This is another perfect travel companion and machine washable, so don’t worry about any accidental stains at the donor dinner! Buy it at White House Black Markey in stores or online here.
