Neon and On and On

Highlighter shades are trending. Shop our picks for summer and beyond.

We have a bright idea: get on the neon bandwagon before it's too late. It doesn't matter if you prefer fuschia, fluorescent yellow, or electric blue—designers everywhere are embracing all of the most vibrant hues out there, and they pack the ultimate punch. Consider some standout looks of past collections (Christopher Kanes spring/summer 2016, Alexander Wang spring/summer 2015, and Moschino spring/summer 2016) as inspiration, and you'll quickly see that when it comes to fluoro fashion it's all or nothing. This doesn't mean you can't start out slow and try incorporating one or two items into your look for now, but we have a feeling that you will be hooked on hot pink and green in no time. Shop our picks below.
