Everybody's Starry Eyed [A/W Trend]

As I sit here at the breakfast bar in my boyfriend's kitchen, there is rain bouncing off the conservatory roof behind me... Autumn has arrived. And with Autumn comes all of the exciting new A/W trends!

One pattern that really stood out for me in the A/W shows earlier this year was star print (at Dolce & Gabbana especially) and I am really excited to see that the high street has created some beautiful patterned pieces too. The thought of getting up on a freezing cold, blustery, dark morning and adorining myself in stars makes me genuinely look forward to such weather!

Browsing this season's star embellished garments, I have noticed they the prints themselves fall into two (equally as covetable) categories:


1. Big, bold, Hollywood Boulevard style stars, like those seen at D&G. I love the goats hair & shearling coat below; it screams "I feel like a star" and would be so much fun to wear. I also love this sweater from Sea NY.

2. Celestial stars that remind us of a real night sky, shown, for example, on this tiered sleeved Topshop blouse and this Oasis dress. The dress is a personal favourite and is definitely on my wishlist for the season! Completing your look with diamond stud earrings would add an extra twinkle to your star themed look too!

Which type of star print do you prefer (or like me are you enamoured by both)? Is this print on your A/W to-buy list?
