Lorde made more than one fashion statement this week with her late-night performances.

From summer-inspired dresses to daring silhouettes, the “California” singer hit the stage on Thursday for “The Late Late Show With James Corden.” For her “Green Light” performance, Lorde exhibited a floral-detailed crocheted dress from the Cong Tri fall ’21 ready-to-wear collection. Lorde’s dress is worth $15,600 and it features an intricate floral motif with a sleeveless cut.

In previous nights on late-night shows, the “Royals” singer surprised fans with a vibrant striped dress and orange platform sandals. But this time around, Lorde invited listeners to sit back and unwind through the melody of her latest album “Solar Power” with a high-end design that is low-key yet elevated to her new standards.

Her outfits seem to reflect her changed perspectives and portray a more down-to-earth Lorde. To wrap up her week-long residency at “The Late Late Show”, Lorde performed in a sophisticated a-line maxi dress — an elegant choice for the soft melody of “Fallen Fruit”.

Though Lorde went for a barefoot look during her performance, the songwriter usually wears trending designs such as the chunky platform shoe trend, mules and stilettos. Lorde’s style evolution continues as she steps into a new landscape and steps away from her avant-garde costumes. Her new album reveals a bright aesthetic with yellow outfits in all their solar glory with a laidback vibe. Likely, Lorde will continue to upgrade her wardrobe with bespoke designs like this $10k crocheted dress.

Step into the solar energy like Lorde with these designs.
