Winter Galactica

When I blogged about Topshop back in November (you can find the post here), I talked about how galactica, and all things sci-fi, was a key trend in their A/W mid-season range.

Well, next season, sci-fi fashion is set to become even more universal - to infinity... and beyond! (Sorry.)

Yes, this theme could be seen all over the S/S 13 catwalks by designers such as Markus Lupfer, Alexander McQueen and Antipodium.

Therefore I decided to invest in a couple of galactic pieces, and what's more galactic than a lovely galaxy print? However, I had to think how I could layer these pieces for a cool, casual look - that is also warm and comfortable - as the weather has been very snowy recently.

I first invested in a monochrome skater skirt, and added some colour through a cosy, pink, high-necked jumper. Tights were a must due to the cold temperatures in the North at the moment, then I added some frilly socks to maximise the femininity of the outfit and my new leopard print, hi-top flatforms for a hint of street style. I was very snug!

For my second galaxy print piece, I chose a long vest top that is more versatile as it can be dressed up or down. It also has more character than the skater skirt as the colours are brighter hues and bring out the print - orange, blue, navy, purple and white can be seen, as well as black.

I teamed the vest top with berry jeans, as berry is still very much a key colour trend in this transitional period between A/W and S/S, a khaki jumper and my leopard print shoe-boots. I do love leopard print!

Then, in order to brave the outdoors, I added my good ol' reliable navy coat and a leopard print scarf to co-ordinate with the leopard print look of my boots

The second outfit is a lot more colourful than the first, which I like, as it brightens up a cold Winter morning! I, personally, love the galactic trend and might have to invest in more pieces in the future! Watch this space.

(Are you currently wearing the galactic trend? What pieces have you bought? I'd love to know! Also, check out my article for IDEAL magazine here showing you how to get the galactic beauty look! 

UPDATE - The first outfit has recently been featured on Look magazine's website as one of their 'Street Style Fashion' looks - as well as their Facebook and Twitter page!

Check it out on the website for yourself here. How exciting! Katie-xo)
