Fall's iridescent trend: oil slick-inspired tones

Oil slicks and oil spills are typically not the kinds of things one finds appealing, yet they are inspiring some really gorgeous accessories this fall. Unlike the space-age hologram trend that spiked back at the beginning of the year, the oil spill look is just a bit more refined (just look at the Kate Spade pumps below). The colors associated with this look also make perfect sense for fall. The freeform iridescence is going to coordinate beautifully with both traditional autumnal tones and all the pastels that are making an appearance this season.
