Guys, spring is officially here, which means we are TOTALLY ready to swap out our all-black ensembles for something a little (OK, a lot) more colorful. Lucky for us, the fashion world’s obsession with the ’90s has shifted from earthy, grunge-inspired looks to futuristic late ’90s/Y2K-era techy pieces in insanely fun fabrics—most notably, the holographic print. You know what we’re talking about—that silver fabric with a hidden rainbow tint that everyone from TLC to the Spice Girls sported back in the day, and it’s everywhere. We’re not crazy, y’all—we’ve seen it on tees, bags, shoes and even nail polish, and we are SO into it! We’re deeming it the must-have item this spring, and (thanks to us!) you can find out where to cop some holographic pieces right this second. Let’s get to it!
First up, some killer holographic oxfords ($186). These bad boys have a white sole and purple iridescent glow to instantly transform any typical T-shirt and jeans outfit into a show-stopping ensemble. If you’re willing to go into full-on hologram mode, we suggest this oversized Starstyling silver foil tee ($484). Like, just look at it. Do we really need to explain why you need this in your wardrobe ASAP? If you’re one of the many, many Jeffrey Campbell Lita fans, you’ll be super stoked to know they now make them in holographic print ($158)! We’re also DYING over this high-waisted Mary Katrantzou skirt ($517), which would be perfect way to look totally on-trend for your next big occasion. For just a touch of hologram goodness, we suggest the Layla Hologram Effect nail polish ($16) in Mercury Twilight. The silver polish reflects the full color spectrum even in low lighting to give a super cool effect. For a cheaper alternative to the Lita platforms, Forever 21 has three (yes, three!) different shades of pointy holographic pumps ($25) that could go with literally anything in your closet. A no-brainer way to add a holographic element to your outfits is by swiping up a silver crossbody satchel ($48). Even if you’re still sporting a heavy winter coat, this little beam of light will remind you of warmer days ahead. But what you do think—are you on-board the holographic print trend?
