TREND OBSESSION : OIL SLICK
It amazes me when something that is dirty, nasty or grungy in nature can be used in a way that turns it into something quite striking and beautiful and that is exactly what is happening with my new trend obsession, OIL SLICK, also referred to as DIESEL MARBLING or OIL SPILL MARBLING.
It has a satisfying combination of whimsical rainbows and unicorns, mixed with a futuristic, yet slightly 90's edgy grunge and I am totally digging it!
I love the irregular, slightly psychedelic nature of the swirl patterns within it as well as the often jewel toned hues. Lately I have been drawn to more neutrals, florals and softer palettes when it comes to patterns and textures so it's surprising to me how much I am loving this trend in fashions and accessories.
Here are some of my faves...
Top Left / METALLIC RAINBOW DRESS- Can I please own this? The whole outfit, not even just the dress!
Top Right / CHALAYAN OIL SLICK PEPLUM JACKET - This textile almost has a faux bois look to it.
Bottom Left / CONVERSE CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR OIL SLICK SNEAKERS - Great bright colors!
Bottom Right / T.U.K. OIL SLICK COMBAT BOOT - So 90s!
Top Left / LA MER OIL SLICK WATCH- I am not usually a watch wearer, but I'd be willing to rock a timepiece with some oil slick on it.
Top Right / BETSEY JOHNSON IRIDESCENT WATCH - Always a Betsey fan!
Bottom Left / NASTY GAL FRENDS LAYLA OIL SLICK HEADPHONES - So fun but still contemporary and chic.
Bottom Right / OIL SLICK COLLAR NECKLACE - Love the chunky gold chain.
Left / OIL SLICK BOB BY @hairbykotay - Love the cut of this style and that the oil slick color is a little more subdued.
Right / OIL SLICK LONG HAIR BY @jennifer_lopiccolo - So pretty! It's like unicorn hair's edgier cousin.
