The 90’s have made a major comeback as of late, with styles reappearing like your beloved childhood jellies or your essential grunge plaid. So many nostalgia pieces, but we definitely have our favorite- iridescent colors! Now is the time to bring out your inner Zenon (Girl of the 21st Century, yeah we said it), because iridescent is all the rage this season. Fashion-forward celebrities like Rihanna and Alexa Chung are already rocking this trend, and you can too! Here are 4 tips on how to work this trend into your wardrobe.
Wear it as a statement piece
It only takes one bold piece to make your whole outfit. A jacket is the first and last thing people generally see, which is why outerwear is the perfect statement piece. Alexa Chung looks stunning with her iridescent jacket as the focus of her look, while keeping the rest of her outfit simple. This look perfect with jeans and a pair of chunky black booties.
Got iridescent in the bag
A bag is the simplest way to incorporate a new trend into your wardrobe, and it’s perfect for someone who doesn’t want to make a full iridescent commitment with their outfit. With festival season in full-force, you can’t go wrong with an iridescent backpack. The Silver Fox Backpack can be worn with denim shorts and a solid, flowy top. If you’re looking for a little more color, opt for the Rock Star Backpack. Light shades of pink aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, and this rose gold iridescent backpack is a beautiful combination of color/texture. This backpack would look great with a nude or pink top as well!
If you just want a little pop of iridescent color, you can never go wrong with accessories. The Queen Bae Iridescent Choker is a great combination of two popular trends, and can even be paired with a layering necklace for some additional dimension. Wear this with an off-the-shoulder top and you’ll have a Spring ready look.
The general rule to mixing patterns is to have one dominate and the other complement the total look. This can also be done with iridescence pieces, and Rihanna can attest to this. Her crop top is the main focus of the outfit with its beautiful texture and color, while her clutch is more subtle. To tie the whole look together, she wore metallic, ankle strap sandal heels.
The key to trends is adding pieces that work with your current wardrobe. Always experiment and find what works best for you. We know you’ll get hooked on iridescent fashion just like we have!
