    RAINBOW CONNECTION

    that's not an optical illusion: 2013 will totally be the year of the hologram outfit.

    Arguably one of the biggest pop culture events of 2012 was the time Tupac Shakur--that is, a hologram of him--appeared onstage at Coachella. Even if you weren't in Indio, you knew about it; it was nearly impossible to be on Twitter that day and not read some 140 character comment on the almost 3-D projection.

    Clearly, the moment had its impact--and not just in the music world. Since then, we've been noticing holographic details coming from our favorite designers this winter: Proenza Schouler's PS11 satchel gets the rainbow treatment; so too do a pair of Stella McCartney slingbacks (she also used the shimmery material to make an iPad case). The list goes on: Asos, Topshop, and NastyGal all stock hologramed items.

    Think of them us a dressed-up neutral--they're somewhere a nude and a white, but a little more toned down than anything sequined or rhinestoned. And while we can't all be turned into holograms like Tupac, now we can dress head-to-toe like one.
