Opera gloves have been making their appearance lately – first spotted on the red carpet amongst all the glitz and glamour on celebs like Elsa Hosk, Dua Lipa and Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney. We’ve also started to see them making their way down the runways of Valentino and Elie Saab and popping up on the streetstyle scene.
