We hope your sunnies are handy, because we are in a full-on Neon Moment. This season’s trend will give you flashbacks to the days of spandex, big hammer pants, and even bigger hair. If you’ve lived long enough, you’ll remember fluorescent scrunchies, visors, and crazy-thick, pushed-down socks. This time around, the palette feels light, fresh, and invigorating. Fashion has a way of reflecting a moment in time. This tumultuous slice of history is ripe for a little levity—and adding a shock of neon to your wardrobe will certainly do the trick.
