We're Obsessed Over This '90s Fashion Trend That's Not For The Faint-Hearted

How to wear holographic everything — the runway's most favourite #TBT-inspired trend.

The ’90s fever is in full swing and often times, some trends from that era get recycled frequently from time to time. Among all the trends of the decade, the one thing that we always loved the most is holographic fabric. Iridescent, shiny and pleasing to the eye, its vivid colour shift awakens our senses.

Bringing us back to the days when Romy and Michele turned heads at their high school reunion 21 years ago, the runway takes it to the next level. From Balmain to Sies Marjan, these designers tantalise our eyes with opalescent finishes on garments. Whether it’s a floor-grazing coat or a modest midi dress, we can’t resist the idea of rocking the holographic trend. Here are the top 10 products to add to your closet.
