I love traditional holiday decor as much as the next person. But there’s a new color—or, should I say, combination of all the colors—decking the halls this season: iridescent. This shimmery trend has been popping up on runways, in home decor, and everywhere in between for the past few months, so it’s no surprise it’s now hit the holiday market.

It’s perfect for a general wintry look you can keep on display until March, and if you have kids who love unicorns or mermaids—or you happen to love these things yourself—then this look will be right up your alley. From glimmery ornaments to full-on iridescent trees, these are our favorite ways to add a prismatic pop to your winter decor.
