Seeing Stars!

I was in love with all things starry when I was a teenager. I was delighted by the Fall 2011 Dolce & Gabbana runway show:

And I'm not the only one obsessed with the star trend. All the magazines have it on their covers, or in editorial spreads:

Harper's Bazaar Dolce & Gabbana
All the celebrities are wearing it:

Jessica Alba and Olivia Wilde
Dolce & Gabbana covered everything in stars, dresses, jackets, pants, shoes and purses.

If you can't afford to have everything be Dolce & Gabbana, here are a few things that follow this trend.

Starred sweaters are great for fall.


Scarves are another must have for fall.


This one looks like it's right off the runway:


Maxi dresses with sleeves is a great update to the summer trend for fall.


Star printed rompers (or playsuits as they are also called to confuse people looking for jumpsuits).


Stars can be dressy, or casual depending on how you wear them.

They look good on a bright coloured background, as well as in black and white.
Different textures (sequins, shiny print) bring the stars to life and are very attention grabbing.

Star covered pants are great for fall as well.

This is an adorable dress from ASOS:


And the starry accessories! I finally get to wear my old star earrings again!

High Waisted Short Shorts

For the fall, I'm falling in love with short-shorts. High waisted ones. With tights for the colder weather.

They have to be tight, and kinda look like you accidentally forgot to put on pants... but if you own it and rock it, then its a fantastic look.

Louis Vuitton did it for fall 2011, with a giant furry purple jacket:

And Chanel did it for spring 2012:

Not only the models were wearing short shorts at the Chanel show:

With a jacket (and tights for the cold!), this is a way to sneak your summer favourites into your fall wardrobe.

Call them short-shorts, disco shorts, or hot pants; they are a hot look for now and the upcoming seasons. 

Polka dots give it a classic pin-up look, and are trendy for fall.
