NASA turned 59 on Sunday, and while that may not be the most significant of anniversaries, it feels like the federal space agency has never been more relevant in fashion than it is now. From Coach's stellar NASA-themed summer collection to Alpha Industries' flight jackets featuring assorted Apollo space-mission patches, there are plenty of nostalgic ways to amp up your streetwear with intergalactic elements.
An astronaut-inspired wardrobe doesn't have to be limited to spacesuits and space boots — go for a Marc Jacobs metallic pair instead. We also suggest throwing in some rockets here and there, perhaps on a bite-sized camera bag served up by Kenzo, or going for a baseball cap with "NASA" written in futuristic lettering; Urban Outfitters has that covered. And since statement earrings are still a selfie favorite, why not invest in some dangling stars or cosmic swirls for a subtle ode to "Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century"?
At Fashionista, we're often talking about wanting to be shot into space — not unlike Chanel, who did so a little more literally at its Fall 2017 runway show with a life-size rocket ship. And nothing quite says "out of this world" like slapping NASA's iconic meatball logo on a basic tee. Ahead, shop 11 of our favorite galactic picks in the gallery below, all of which are available right now for under $350.
