Celestial prints are at the top of my list of trends to work into my wardrobe this spring. Their pastel, watercolor hues and geometric motifs make them perfect for a season of warming temps and budding flowers.

Whether it be leggings, shoes, tops, or accessories, I can’t wait to get my hands on more pieces to make some far-out combos – but to do it without looking like a wannabe astronaut? That’s the tricky part. Lucky for you, I’m here to try it out before you land yourself on a tabloid’s “Don’t” fashion list.

Out there
For a futuristic, space-age look, wear this print with a holographic clutch, studded bangles, and neon accents like a belt or shoes. I tried pairing a celestial crop top with a high-waisted neon green scuba skirt and a light-wash denim jacket for a casual weekend night out.

More grounded
Think this trend is a little too much? Bring it down to a safer level by pairing a celestial-print top with a solid basic, such as an ivory skirt or tailored boot-cut denim. Throw a blazer on top to make it office-chic.
