The new Star Wars movie is out this week, did you know? Bahahaha…we’re KIDDING! Of course you know. Everyone knows. So, fashion fans, just go with it. Let’s embrace some space age style, and get all Star Wars, right?
Now we are not suggesting you go around dressed like Princess Leia, or adopt ‘Yoda green’ as your colour of choice. No, we are suggesting paying homage to the movie release with some cool silver, space age style.
Space age style of sorts. Yes, this is a tenuous link, but who doesn’t love a bit of silver in their lives. And who doesn’t think silver is, well, space age?!
This fantastic sequin shift from H&M (£79.99) has a space age feel to it, no? Or this slinky metallic thread silver ribbed midi dress from French Connection (£65). Team either with a gorgeous silver faux fur coat (£69, Dorothy Perkins @ BHS), and glittery boots (£27.99, New Look), or full on shiny silver space age sandals (£49.99, New Look).
If you want your space age style a bit more subtle, then French Connection’s aptly named galaxy star trousers (£85) and matching top (£55) are perfect. They look like the opening screen background of Star Wars itself! Team them with cracked leather silver Kickers shoes (£85, Schuh), or fab silver loafers (£29.99, H&M). H&M also has lovely grey/silver trousers (£29.99). Add a bit of sparkle to your winter woolies with theses fab mittens and matching fluffy pom pom hat from JOY (£12 and £16, respectively).
Add a simple bit of space age style with a silver glitter bar statement necklace (£12.50, BHS), or keep it more grounded with some chandelier earrings (£7, were £10, Red Herring @ Debenhams), or a cute Christmas tree brooch (£7.50, BHS). H&M’s geomteric glitter skirt (£12.99) and matching top (£5.99) are perfect space age partywear. As are Schuh’s fantastic shiny silver courts (£65).
Go full on Empire style glamour, with an amazing wet-look, shiny silver maxi dress from Debut @ Debenhams (£130). You could rule a galaxy in this dress! Sparkly silver sequins make space age party style. No1 Jenny Packham @ Debenham’s maxi dress is stunning (£225), and New Look’s bodycon high neck dress (£69.99) will show off all your curves!
Glittery shoes are party perfection (£65, J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams). French Connection have a floaty, beautiful threaded silver skirt (£60), just like the midi dress above – team it with a simple black Tee if you want to dress your space age style down. Finally, New Look’s silver gem necklace (£12.99) as space age style in buckets!
