We’ve just put the finishing touches on our holiday collection at the lifestyle brand where I work. And you know what’s hot right now? Stars. These little pointed shapes are everywhere; jewelry, stationery, t-shirts, handbags, tights, you name it. Everything looks more festive if you put stars on it. I think it’s the sparkle factor!
