So after searching long and hard for the perfect dress to wear this Christmas, I came to one conclusion: everything is either velvet or star print. Velvet gets me feeling all eww-y every time I think about feeling it. Like it actually brings me out in goosebumps. I think it looks pretty, but I just cannot for the life of me touch it. Weird phobia – I know. But star print on the other hand is something I have a lot of time for…
Admittedly, I actually got this brand new Topshop dress on eBay for £8.50, when it should have been £45! So they don’t actually sell it anymore, but there are plenty more options out there. Like literally, take one look at the star print dresses and you will start to get all starry eyed yourself! But with there being so many prints out there, here are a few reasons why I love adding star print to my wardrobe, and you should too!
Reasons I love star print
- It is the perfect print for this time of year. Star print has a sort of wintery/festive vibe going on and I am here for it. It means it is a great print to wear for any of those Christmas parties you have lined up.
- Star print is dead easy to style. It isn’t one of those prints that is so over the top and in your face that it has to be the only statement piece to your outfit. You can totes get away with layering up those necklaces, or even wearing a pair of funky, bright heels with it.
- It is a good alternative to glitter. This time of year everyone just thinks glitter. If it has glitter on, then yes it is festive but if you want something a little different, star print is the one. It still has that desirable festive feel but will make you stand out from all the glitter balls on the dance floor.
My top star print picks
As this star print dress is black, it is quite versatile in the sense that you could accessorise with silver, gold or even rose gold – which obviously I did. I feel like rose gold and black is a really classy combo and it just works. With this beautiful Swarovski necklace and matching rose gold and taupe ice watch, you’ve got a perfect accessory combination.
