Are stars the new skulls ?
ok so in the past year or so stars have been about, hiding away in the background .. but seriously in the last month they have just exploded as as street trend.. on everything from scarfs to tee too necklaces. Ok so we know everyone and there mum had the star tattoos.. but stars clothing and assoesories and bags .. something everywere or more regional ??

Every magazine it seems has picked up on this trend .. time to dig out the scanner i thinks ..

anyone else recon stars are the new skull ??

i've already noticed the emergence of stars, too. they are absolutely everywhere here in germany, prints or tattoos, and i'm getting bored of them.
besides, i don't like them. they are so "rockabilly", which is absolutely not my kind of style. all the emo kids are wearing them here - akward!

so true...the tiny star tatoo on the outside of your thumb is getting rather passe

but if the SS08 chanel and YSL shows were any indication, stars are still shining on

There certainly are a lot more stars around these days. I am not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing (I love stars)

i don't think so. part of the allure of skulls are that the image is associated with rebellion, death, being badass,etcc,...
...stars, though, i always just associate them with being patriotic in a dorky way
but after seeing this pics, i guess they might become a huge trend.

i agree...i always associate stars with americana and patriotism (and its not dorky at all...the chanel show reminded me of uncle sam and abe lincoln, which is eve nerdier )

but these is something slightly rebellious and avant garde about stars

I think it's like the skull trend but not the same...I love the clothes in this thread but unfortunately do all the emo kids wear stars & skulls.
