There's one question that readers never tire of emailing, and it's this one. What do you wear to the opera?
My usual answer is whatever you like, as long as it doesn't involve beachwear. But now with ENO telling us to dress down and Covent Garden telling us to dress up the issue has become more complicated.
Fortunately the disposable fashion behemoth ASOS.com have created knitwear for every operatic occasion. Just pair one of their ~now massively reduced~ jumpers with your jeans/lounge suit/tutu.
Here's a selection.
