The unicorn beauty trend started with rainbow highlights, high-shine highlighters, iridescent lipsticks, and other holographic, fantasy-inspired products.

But the unicorn trend we’re most excited about is unicorn workout gear. The trend’s eye-catching color scheme looks especially pleasing on sneakers, whether it be a pair of running shoes or a casual pair of canvas kicks.
