Last night, celebrities, influencers and fashion's finest convened at the Met Gala red carpet — a.k.a. the Super Bowl of style — sporting tiaras, trains and dramatic silhouettes, playing into the event's vintage-inspired theme of "Gilded Glamour."
But you don't need to be heading to the most exclusive fundraiser of the year to embrace these turn-of-the-century trends. From flirty, voluminous sleeves to sexy corsets, here are three ways to incorporate Gilded Era styles into your spring wardrobe.
- Flouncy Sleeves
- It's A Cinch
- Glamorous Jewels
By the peak of the Gilded Age in the 1890s, dramatic sleeves were a well-established fashion must-have, described as being "all the rage" by the National Park Service.
With its throwback theme, this year's Met Gala heralded the revival of this classic trend, as celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens and pop star Rosalía hit the red carpet in gowns featuring the bold silhouette.
Channel the drama of this timeless look into everyday wear by reaching for breezy yet romantic dresses with exaggerated sleeves. To add a bit of extra modern flair, look for this style in a bright, trending color – you can never go wrong with pink!
It's A Cinch
Bold sleeves weren't the only Gilded Era trend making a comeback on the red carpet. Corsets and bustier-inspired silhouettes made frequent appearances throughout the night, with stars like Billie Eilish, Gigi Hadid, Laura Herrier and even rock legend Lenny Kravitz getting in on the look.
To translate these sexy, vintage styles into your daily wardrobe, play it cool by pairing a corseted tank top with your favorite jeans. For a more polished look, layer the cinched accessory on top of an oversized button-up shirt worn as a dress.
Beyond clothing, many of the Gala's attendees paid homage to Gilded Age trends by accessorizing with vintage-inspired gems. While Blake Lively, YouTube sensation Emma Chamberlain and even Met Gala co-chair/Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour rocked tiaras as a nod to old-school high society, other stars like Julianne Moore, Alicia Keys and Emily Ratajkowski took a more modern approach, completing their looks with pendant earrings.
Put a more casual spin on this ultra-glamorous trend by accessorizing black pants and an everyday blazer or tank top with a bold pair of dangly diamond earrings. To add even more emphasis to your statement jewels, complete the look by sweeping your hair back into a loose ponytail or cute messy bun.
