Fashion: Let your stars align
There is something in the air, or rather in the sky….
Put it down to Anthony Vaccarello’s FW 15/16 collection (yes still frothing) or those Stella McCartney platform brogues that keep stalking us, but lately, we have had nothing but stars in our eyes. When it comes to prints and design, we are feeling those stellar vibes and it seems like we are not alone. From iconic designers to street style mavens, everyone is injecting the trend into their looks. If Anthony Vaccarello’s laser cut, thigh-high skirts aren’t quite your thing, why not inject the trend into your wardrobe a more human-friendly way (because we know the models who rock Vaccarello’s designs must be alien). Rock the trend like a boss with the street style label all ‘it girl’s’ are loving Realisation Par and NYLONS, the accessory label you need to know before it’s on everyone else’s hit list.
So with stars still in our eyes (and clearly in our heads) our wish list goes a little like …
The Day Dreamer
For a flirty day look that doesn’t compromise on style, we dream of the Realisation ‘Diane dress’ in navy star $270 because it presents endless styling options. The plunging neckline and sexy hemline are offset with long sleeves for those lunch dates that call for a little extra modesty. Accessories… we don’t ask for much, just a pair of gold, Dries Van Noten brogues (circa 2007… you know the one’s that got away), the unassuming Yves Saint Laurent ‘sac de jour nano’ in black $2150 (it’s always the quiet ones that break the bank) and the Nylons ‘star choker’ in gold $299 – because it’s simply next level.
Saturday Night Vibes
For a star-studded night out we dream of the Realisation ‘Diane dress’ in red star paired with the Stuart Weitzman ‘alllegs ultrastretch over-the-knee boots’ in black suede (of course) $1402, paired with the Yves Saint Laurent ‘monogrammed leather shoulder bag’ $2370 (we did say we had stars in our eyes). Finish the look with the season’s mush have accessory, the leather choker. LOVE TWAIN’s collaboration with 32.4 has us obsessing over the star inspired, pendant choker $79. 100% leather and 100% gold plated. 100% needs to be in your wardrobe.
Because the LOVE TWAIN girl is always attending a festival or live-gig somewhere, we dream of the ‘Bianca top’ in star struck $195 paired with the right denim shorts. You know the type that won’t show your bum cheeks (the TWAIN girl knows that’s never a good look). Such an ensemble calls for flattering ankle boots such as the Acne Jensen’s $760. The pointed toe finish elongates the legs, and TWAIN will never say no to that. The right bag sounds a little like the original bucket bag to rival all bucket bags (if you can manage to get your paws on one), the Mansur Gavriel design in pebbled leather $650. To finish the look, the ensemble calls for the earrings which will elevate all your ensembles to star status, the Nylons star studs in silver $190.
