Inspiration: Holographics

There haven't been many holographic moments in our lives since Jem in the 80's, but 2012 seems to be the year to change all that.  First there was Tupac's "appearance" at Coachella this year, and now it's morphed into fashion.

Marc Jacobs and Hussein Chalayan all prominently featured it in their F/W 2012 collections, and the iridescent, rainbow-like sheen has been seen on everything recently, from puffy outerwear to chic party clutches and dresses.  Hailee and Kate show two popular ways to wear it:
Hailee Steinfeld in a sparkling ERIN Erin Fetherston sequin cocktail dress (currently available at Bloomingdales for $550.00), wide cuff, Edie Parker box clutch and nude peep-toes; Kate Bosworth in a sequin Stella McCartney design, JewelMint earrings, a leather Proenza Schouler clutch and crystal Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.
I think that with some basic, simple pieces and accessories to balance it out, this is an easy, fun look to wear to the office during holiday season.  Get into the fashionable holiday spirit! 

Here are some similar styles so that you can make this look your own:
