If you’re still sad about the unicorn trend that ended last fall, it’s time to perk up. After four months of silence, these magical rainbow creatures are back in style. This time, unicorn fashion has found a way to incorporate new fads like holographic surfaces, pastels, and glitter into its rainbow-themed outfits. It’s a more aware incarnation of the eccentric 2016 fad. By using current trends as a vehicle, clothing companies are transforming unicorn fashion into a chic new style you can feel sexy and proud in. Here are some flashy new products to infuse your spring with magical flair.
SILENCE + NOISE IRIDESCENT PACKABLE WINDBREAKER JACKET
If you’re all about the 90s renaissance but love contemporary fashion too, this is the windbreaker for you. It’s water-resistant and super lightweight, tough enough to keep you dry without sacrificing any comfort. Add it to your wardrobe quick before the April showers roll in.
CHUNKY OMBRE GLITTER HEELS
Open-toed shoes don’t come more magical than this. These heels are perched on the edge of current fashion. Their unicorn-themed color scheme is enhanced with glitter and thick heels reminiscent of the platform shoe. If you want some rainbow sparkle for the club this summer, here’s your answer.
THE ANNE-MARIE IN SUNSET OMBRE
Pastels are infiltrating every sub-category of fashion and beauty this spring. If you prefer your unicorn fashion watered down, take this gentle sunset one-piece to the shore. It spans two-thirds of the rainbow without ever looking too colorful or comic.
PRADA OMBRE PATENT-LEATHER PUMPS
Cinderella’s glass slipper has nothing on these beautiful pumps. Crafted in Italy from smooth dyed leather, these shoes are the perfect romantic heels for both formal parties and summer weddings. Try a sky-blue skirt and pastel pink blouse to highlight the shoe’s gently graduated color scheme.
ROCHESTER MAXI DRESS
Bring the whimsical grace of unicorn fashion to beach parties and outdoor soirees in this flowing maxi. You’ll look as though you’ve been draped in mystical unicorn haze. The tasseled fringe trim gives this outfit an unexpected 70s vibe. It’s vintage, trendy, and modern all at once. Pretty impressive for a unicorn fashion dress.
JIMMY CHOO CANDY HOLOGRAPHIC ACRYLIC CLUTCH
The multi-colored look of this holographic clutch elevates unicorn fashion to a new level. Rather than boasting a simple, 8-shade rainbow, the holographic material fractures sunlight into hundreds of different hues ranging from pink to bluish-green. Holographic products are an excellent way to give your unicorn fashion a sophisticated edge.
TIE-DYE OMBRE SMOCK SHORTS
There’s only a slight difference between rainbow-themed unicorn fashion and Hippie-inspired psychedelic dyes. While Hippie tie-dye is aggressive and bold, unicorn fashion is gentle and more mysterious. These naturalistic shorts demonstrate how you can use tie-dye to create a soft, pastel rainbow.
BETSEY JOHNSON WOMEN’S HEART MIRRORED METAL SUNGLASSES
This cute take on those infamous glasses from the Lolita movie poster brings together hearts and rainbows for a transformative unicorn fashion experience. Any summer day viewed through these lenses will be tinted with multi-colored stripes. What better way to experience the first weeks of spring?
AIMEE KESTENBERG CARMEL SMALL SHOULDER BAG
With distinct brush strokes interrupting its neat rainbow stripes, this luxe leather bag has personality and texture. It’s also the perfect size for a bag. You can drape it over your arm like a purse or remove the slim strap and use it as a clutch.
WHITE RAINBOW FAUX FUR VAMP SLIDERS
London Fashion Week’s penchant for playful furry slippers made faux fur footwear an unfortunate 2017 trend. These colorful sliders may be one of the best results of this emerging fad. They’re great for a casual poolside get-together and will add unconventional fluff to your tropical vacation wardrobe.
MISBEHAVE HOLOGRAPHIC RAINBOW LACE UP SNEAKERS
These unicorn fashion items are the ultimate metallic sneakers. They’ll throw about snazzy rainbows as you walk. In some ways, these shoes are more exciting than those with light-up heels. With a holographic shoe, you never know exactly what color is going to shine.
BAO BAO AURORA TOTE
This flexible bag is as geometric as they come. At first glance, it looks more like an architectural drawing than a rainbow tote. The precise black outlines divide the random colors into a pattern. If you prefer your unicorn fashion with a dose of constructive clarity, this simple bag will do the trick.
Unicorn fashion is nothing to laugh at. If you do your research, you’ll find dozens of chic rainbow products to enhance your wardrobe. Whoever said unicorns couldn’t be classy was dead wrong.
