You have seen it everywhere this season. First on the runway, then on the covers of magazines, inside magazines, on red carpet and finally on celebs’ candids. Star print is the new leopard. At least for now. The print has blown the fashion world when Dolce & Gabbana have showcased their Fall/Winter 2011 collection this year. Everything from shift dresses to shoes has been covered with stars – big stars, small stars, different size stars. The pieces come in solid and shimmering gold finishes in various colors and on different fabrics. So you’ve got the idea. Star print is very trendy.
Celebs wore most star-printed pieces from the collection including starry pants and sheer maxi dresses. Fashionistas from Kim Kardashian to Jessica Alba has tried a new print on and amazingly enough the star print suits almost everybody, though I’m not personally a fan of oversize stars. I’m wondering why music note print hasn’t got that popular.
So how does one, very trendy fashionista wear this star print? You could wear it casually in short dresses and pants adding bold hues in tops and cardigans, footwear and accessories. If you plan an evening out or something little more official you can go with a midi dress with a high neck or a sexy low-cut lace trimmed decollete. If you like to shine there are star-printed pieces finished with sequins and paillettes. Sheer clothes must can be worn with a black or nude body or slip underneath it, just make sure the nude matches your skin tone as much as possible.
Accessorize star print with even bolder accessories like bejeweled bags and clutches and shiny footwear. Any other prints around? Throw’em in just make sure it all looks stylish, not overdone. Though it’s hard not to overdo when you’re mixing prints. Go with bold accessories like earrings, other jewelry, footwear, and bags. And if your budget is tight Topshop and Oasis have got starry options for you.
