Get Oil Slick Clothing Like Katy Perry On 'Rolling Stone'

When you have slime-green hair like Katy Perry, deciding what to wear isn't easy. But our girl proved you can go technicolor from head to toe on the latest issue of Rolling Stone. With her sheer dress, lavender choker, and single Delfina Delettrez earring, Katy looks like a relic of the early ’90s rave days—in the best way possible. She’s taken her love of all things holographic to the next level with an oil-slick-printed frock. Suddenly, we wanted to deck out our entire wardrobe in everything iridescent, so we found ways to do just that.


To cop Katy’s exact look, you can pick up her sheer UNIF mesh dress for just $128. (Warning: You're gonna need some killer undergarments as well.)


For something more casual, Clashist’s trippy oil slick tee will only set you back $55. While it’s a bit bolder than the cover girl’s is, the iridescence makes it a little more versatile and easier to dress up with a skirt, or you can keep it casual with a pair of jeans. If you are as stylistically brave as Katy (and also love a good theme), you can pair it with these ~advanced~ oil slick leggings ($70).


For fence-sitters deciding between whether Katy’s Prismatic look is better than her Rolling Stone cover, Asos has created the perfect tee: a mashup of hologram and oil slick that’s priced at $66. (Bonus points to Asos for styling their model like another favorite pop star of ours, Charli XCX.)

Nasty Gal

Or you can try Nasty Gal’s slip dress in a similar fabric ($72) that you could wear into the winter with a pair of thick tights and an oversized cardigan.

Kult Clothing

A better cold weather option is Kult Clothing’s oil slick sweatshirt ($79), which is closer color-wise to Katy’s top.


If you only want to dip your toes (heh) in the trend, a subtler way to wear it is by donning a pair of oil slick socks. Kult Clothing has a solid option ($16) that would pair great with a pair of jellies. T.U.K. also took on the oil slick trend for the feet. The thick-soled lace-up boots ($110) actually look like they were made to be worn to raves.
