If you're a child of the 80s or early 90s, you might be having flashbacks right now. The blindingly bright colors of decades past are back. After making their show-stopping appearance last spring, neons and fluorescents have returned this year in a manner that’s impossible to miss.
And while we’re on the subject of trends we never thought would return… remember fanny packs? Yeah, the neon, color-blocked pouch I proudly toted around Disney World as a kid? This year it’s reincarnated as what we’re now referring to as the “belt bag.” But that’s a different subject entirely. Back to brights.
May it be riding solo, color-blocked or thrown in with a print or two, there are a hundred ways to spin it, and it's hip for kids and adults alike. Rock the fluorescence however you want, but don’t say I didn’t tell you so if you end up feeling a little, uh, tubular.
