THRIFTY THURSDAY: Flirty and Fun for Fall With Anna Netrebko


By Lily Guerrero

Is your little black dress #MetReady? Anna Netrebko spruced up her LBD with a bright print jacket, matching bag, and flirty shoes. She is definitely not one to blend into the background! Here’s how to make your big #MetReady look happen. Maybe you’ll even end up being featured on the Metropolitan Opera’s new Instagram account, @LastNightAtTheMet!

1. Find a colorful print jacket. Layers are especially important during the fall, and it’s always nice to have a jacket over an LBD in case the theatre gets cold or you have to run across the street for a latte.

2. Add a matching purse. Keep the focus on your jacket by pairing it with a neutral bag. I love the chain big that Anna has in this picture.

3. Add an exclamation point with the shoes! Anna is not a boring person and neither are you! Keep them guessing by pairing your outfit with a fun shoe. It is the wink at the end of your sentence, so to speak.
