Anyone recall Kate Moss on her 34th birthday with that gold star painted across her eye and that fabulous stellar Chanel jumpsuit? As usual, she was ahead of the posse.

Micro-trends, those subtle, little sideline trends can be anything from banana earrings or owl prints to swimming caps or Peter Pan collars. And this season, stars are a high-voltage hit.

Dolce & Gabbana are leading the posse. Everything from brogues to fur jackets have been given the star stamp. This trend has longevity so you could do worse than invest in this classic little twinkler.

Still, if your budget is having a heart attack at the mere mention of Dolce, Oasis have a genius alternative. Complete with pussy-bow collar and cuffed full-length sleeves, this chiffon maxi with star cluster print is a dead ringer.

Style with flat ankle boots for a grungy twist.
