The first thing that comes to mind when you think patterned sweater is most likely stripes, followed by polka dots and maybe even argyle. But once you see celebs like Katie Holmes, Amanda Seyfried and Zooey Deschanel all wearing the same style, let alone the exact same sweater, you know it’s going to be big. And that’s exactly what happened with the Saint Laurent Star Print Sweater, which is sold out at Saks, Barneys and Net-A-Porter. Not to mention, starry sweaters were also seen in fall collections for Equipment and Givenchy. So we think the five-point print has shown fashion followers that its look can last beyond the 4th of July. Can you tell which sweater costs more than $1,000?
Answer: The sweater on the right is Saint Laurent‘s Star Print Sweater ($1,049), and the sweater on the left is Love by Design‘s Star Print Pullover ($44). They’re both made of different materials (Love by Design is mainly polyester while Saint Laurent mixes mohair with wool) but go for the same black-and-pink color palette. So if you’re coveting something from Saint Laurent’s grunge-inspired fall collection but can’t afford the hefty price tag, opt for the Love by Design look. Even if you could drop $1K for a Saint Laurent star-print sweater, it’s pretty hard to get your hands on one. So why not save yourself the hassle and a thousand dollars, too?
