holographic trend



Can’t pick a favorite color? How about something with hues of EVERYTHING- red, orange, yellow,…. rainbow??

Holographic trend, sister of metallic trend, has been around quite some time but it still feels new and exciting. Maybe because it will never stop being so bold and in your face.

To my knowledge, the holographic/iridescent trend is actually from the 80’s. This trend exploded again last Spring 2o13 and is still going strong. This time much more loud and vibrant than the 80’s. Now you can find holographic anything, from tops to jackets to accessories. It’s about time they make holographic undies.. or Hugo Boss has already done that



Many designers have incorporated holographic fabric into their designs:

In addition to garments, you can spot various types of holographic accessories. Holographic carry-all pouch by American Apparel, pouches and sleeves by Marc Jacobs & Stella McCartney.

My favorite part of this trend has got to be shoes obviously.. I need these babes in my shoe collection. Oxfords by Miista, Boots are either Docs or knockoffs, looks to me like knockoffs.

I bet Dorothy approves 😉 Who knew she was setting the trend from way way back in time?

If all this is too loud and overwhelming, you can still join the trend by painting your nails in holographic hues. Only downside is that they come in so many different shades and made by so many different brands, it will be a headache to choose one.
