It was the confusing and cool MET gala theme and now it’s in your closet. We show you how to wear camp on the regular.
Katy Perry dressed as a chandelier, Zendaya as Cinderella and Lady Gaga changed her outfit four times in five minutes – the MET Gala had no shortage of over the top, exciting moments.
The theme was ‘camp’, which basically means unique, exaggerated and out of this world. Despite what it looks like at first glance, you can actually wear camp on a daily basis without breaking the bank or your regular dress code.
There is no better way to make a statement than to wear it. Think patterned bodysuits, sheer, neon, fringing and bold prints. Anything that looks slightly over the top and made for the Lady Gagas of the world, is perfect for you too.
A statement bag is the best way to subtly introduce camp to your look. Designers like Moschino live for making unique bags. To be right on trend, try out a cute printed bag that will make any outfit a hit.
Bigger is better is the eternal rule of camp. Earrings, big in size or covered in big prints will give you 10s across the board.
Shoes with prints, bright colours and extra embellishments on them are totally camp. Try these on for size.
Camp is supposed to promote individuality and that’s exactly what accessories do. Headpieces were huge at the MET, so look for them when shopping for camp pieces.
