No, you're not on an acid trip, it's just my newest trend report. I have not heard an official declaration that iridescent is the next trend, but with the rate it is flooding into retail stores, it should be. I first noticed large quantities of iridescent jewelry on Forever 21's website (Here, take a look for yourself). As I began to keep an eye out for iridescent baubles, I suddenly began seeing them everywhere, Nordstrom, Macy's, Charlotte Russe... You get the point. Logically, I suppose it is a natural progression coming off of the huge sequin high we have been experiencing. I know this is going to be one of those trends everyone either loves or hates.
Me, I'm open to it. I have been subconsciously playing into it for months now. It began with a pair of sunglasses I bought before Thanksgiving and then I picked up some psychedelic nail polish around Christmas. Additionally, I had the idea to make a DIY with an iridescent effect. It's creeping up on me! I don't know if I will be able to incorporate this trend into my actual threads, but I will be rocking some very chromatic accessories soon!
