Shop These Wearable Dupes Of Your Fave Met Gala Styles

Who said sequins and lace only belong at the Met?

The Met Gala 2021 may be over, but the style statements made by countless celebs last night are going to live on… in our wardrobes!

While the outfits Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish donned for the gala aren’t exactly appropriate for everyday wear (unless wearing ballgowns to the shop is your thing, in which case, you do you bestie) we can take plenty of style inspo from the Met.

Stars like Madison Beer and Addison Rae donned sequins, lace, feathers and more daring ensembles for the blow-out fashion event and there’s no doubt we’ll see more of these trends in the future.

So it’s time to get ahead of the style curve and start shopping the more wearable dupes of your favourite celebs’ Met Gala outfits.

And before you panic – no, we don’t expect you to buy a lace bodysuit a la Olivia Rodrigo!

Instead we’re going to show you how to infuse these A-list trends into your wardrobe without needing a whole style team and an invite to the 2022 Met Gala.

Without further ado, read on for the more wearable dupes of our favourite Met Gala 2021 looks.

Billie Eilish’s ballgown chic

You can’t talk about the Met Gala without someone mentioning Billie’s show-stopping gown.

If you’re trying to capture the romantic vibes she was serving at the Met – minus the giant ballgown skirt – opt for something light and feminine.

The Josephine Tiered Midi Dress ($139.99) from Forever New is long and floaty like Billie’s dress but much more wearable for the everyday gal.

Or you can embrace the poofiness of Billie’s gown but keep it casual by opting for a shorter style like the Paris Is Calling Mini Dress ($95) from Verge Girl.

Olivia Rodrigo’s feathers and lace

Doesn’t she look AMAZING? The key to making Olivia’s Met Gala outfit more wearable is to pick one element – feathers or lace – to incorporate in your own outfits.

Layer the Lace V-Neck Long Sleeve (on sale for $11.99) from Glassons over a black crop or bralette for a luxe lace look.

Or pair the Filthy Femme Velevet Crop Top ($42) from Dolls Kill with an all-black ensemble to emulate Olivia’s feathery flair.

Addison Rae’s slinky red dress

What can we say about Addison’s look other than “DAMN”? 

The He’s All That star looks phenomenal in this slinky red number and you can copy her style in two cheeky ways; in a silky red slip dress, or a vibrant red corset.

Bag the Tabitha Cowl Neck Midi Dress ($99) from Meshki, it’s the perfect slip style you can dress up with heels or pair with sneakers for a more casual vibe.

Or shop the Patience Corset ($49.95) from White Fox Boutique if you’re a fan of the corset trend and pair it with casual jeans.

And yes, you can totally layer both pieces to recreate Addison’s full ensemble!

Cara Delevigne’s edgy corset

Speaking of the corset trend, who could do it better than Cara in this edgy body-armour style from Dior?

We seriously can’t get enough of it and the corset trend has been hot for a while, so this is an easy style to incorporate into your daily wardrobe.

Opt for a structured white corset top like the Bad Gal Bustier ($49.95) from White Fox Boutique to recreate this look – you can even sew or write your own message in red across the front if you’re feeling bold.

Pair it with some white Relaxed Straight Leg Jeans (on sale for $47.99) from Glassons to make Cara’s look more everyday-appropriate.

Emma Chamberlain and Kendall Jenner’s glitzy glam

Sequins, jewels and embellishments were super popular on the Met Gala white carpet, but Emma and Kendall’s looks were our favourites.

A dress covered in gems and rhinestones may be a little too much for a casual brunch though, so tone it down by pairing these glittery styles with casual accessories for your next special occasion.

The Shook Mini Dress ($89.95) or Natalee Cowl Neck Dress ($79.95) from Showpo are both fun, flirty styles that embrace some sparkle but avoid going overboard by keeping the hemline short.

Pair them with loose, messy hair, a leather jacket and combat boots to avoid being swallowed up in the glitter.

Camila Cabello’s divine purple set

Want to nab a man like Shawn Mendes? Well, we can’t guarantee that copying Camila’s style will get you one, but it might be worth a try.

She rocked this purple set with sequins and feathers, but you can tone down the look by opting for a more low-key purple skirt and top combo.

Buy the Brooklyn Set ($70) from Princess Polly and pair it with chunky sandals and a mini bag for a super on-trend look.

For a more tropical vibe shop the Off Shoulder O-ring Front Top & Tie Side Split Thigh Skirt Set ($24.95) from SHEIN and pair it with strappy heels for a summery look.
