Style Sleuth: Reach for the Stars!

September 26, 2011 • Magazine, Style Sleuth

Looking up at the night sky, everything looks so beautiful. The clouds, the stars, the moon… it’s a feat that happens every night but never stops being less gorgeous each time. So what could be better than wearing those nighttime traits?

Living in a very busy (not to mention well-lit) and chaotic city, it’s pretty hard to see the sky at night. Night sky prints are fun because they are a great, unexpected addition to your wardrobe but the look is easily recognizable. All it takes is one standout piece to bring your whole outfit together.

Granted, this is something that might not be the best idea for work. Stars and cosmic prints are more of a fun, nighttime look so bringing that look to the corporate world might be a daunting task unless the print is small and fairly muted. And it must be kept light, as in a necklace or blouse underneath a blazer. Bright and neon colors are best left for the dark (so to speak).

Whether it be a dress, clutch or shoe, using the cosmic sky to punch up a simple ensemble is “out of this world!”
