Holographic wardrobe pieces ruled the runways this year and are a must have addition to your closet for a stylish transition into the warm weather.

Now, designers such as Tom Ford, Lanvin, Marc-by-Marc Jacobs, and Phillip Lim have brought it back and the updated version of the holographic trend is all about making a statement.
Phillip Lim and Marc-by-Marc Jacobs played with iridescent accents in their SS2014 runway shows to add some pop to their sportswear, while Tom Ford demonstrated a sexier approach to holographia with sleek body con dresses. From street wear to glamorous nights out, this trend is both versatile and dramatic so check out some tips for looking out-of-this-world fabulous this season:
The key to avoiding a major fashion faux pas when wearing hologram pieces is to keep the rest of your look simple. Contrast is your friend, so build your outfit around the holographic item to allow it to shine as the focal point of your outfit.
