It seems like every few years the fashion cycle brings us back to all things futuristic. Metallics, sleek lines, iridescence and tech-influenced clothing and accessories are big this fall and winter. The futuristic fashion trend can be a magnificent way to bring a little light into your cold weather ensembles.
How to Wear The Latest Futuristic Fashion Trend
Sneak Into High Tech
There’s always plenty of new technology in this realm, but the coolest shoes lately look just as futuristic as the components they are made of. The Nike Pre-Love O.X. in summit white and Superga Hologram 2750 Hologram sneakers are both super cool and would be a great highlight against all your typical winter black and gray.
There’s nothing like the badass energy of a moto jacket, so why not take it to the future with a slightly iridescent cognac leather jacket like this one by Akris? It’s a splurge but we think it’s to die for and very Lara Croft/Lady Indiana Jones.
Belt Your Bag
Would a bag be just as useful for fighting your way aliens and zombies in a dystopian future world as it would be for fighting your way through a crowded grocery store or mall? That’s a good sign that you’re right on the mark for this look. Hands-free belt bags, which definitely are not to be worn like old school fanny packs such as this hologram belt by Avec La Troupe are perfect and practical. Sling one over your shoulder.
When the future’s so bright nothing beats shades and you’ve got options. These iridescent rimless Ray Bans are classically cool, while this blue green cat eye style by Super by RetroSuperFuture might make a real statement if you’re daring.
Love the iridescent look but don’t want to look like you’re headed to a cosplay event? Add a pop of drama to your nails with a hue like Deborah Lippmann Never Never Land or the Nails Inc. Unicorn Polish Duo.
This can be a tough look to pull of, but a bit of future-forward iridescence and shine can go a long way, especially when paired with impeccable basic pieces – this is a one-item only trend if you’re over thirty. Also, this is not an area to go for cheap fast fashion pieces, since pulling off iridescence or other highly reflective fabrics means the construction and cut have to be perfect. But when you find that perfect piece, you’ll be the star of the universe.
