If You Love Rainbows, You'll Love This New Trend

Add some color to your life with these iridescent accents.

If you're anything like me, you'd be hard-pressed to find a metallic accessory that doesn't catch your eye. But after years of gold, silver and copper getting all the love, a new, shiny style is certainly in order. That's why I've been so excited to see a new crop of metallic accessories hit the market in an eye-catching, rainbow-inspired finish to boot. The one-of-a-kind look recalls the colors found in oil slicks but feels streamlined and decidedly stylish.

And whether you call the colorful finish iridescent, opalescent or pearlescent, one thing's for sure — this is one style that is sure to inspire a few double takes.
