Neon: The Newest Color Trend | OpenGrowth

Fashion month can be compared to a crystal ball. It gives us a glance into our (wardrobe-related) futures by showcasing what is going to be wearing in six months' period. And it was evident in the spring/summer 2019-2020 runways that the industry's obsession with revivify '80s trends is indicating no signs of waning. Neon is the new trend. 

Fluorescent clothes and accessories were famous on several designer catwalks this year - think Gucci, Versace, Prada - and, unsurprisingly, it's a trend that ran straight for the high street. Neon color ranges are the key palette of the season. Companies backed neon across apparel, footwear, and accessories - and seen great responses.


 Neon Fashion Trend History 

You’re probably living under an online rock if you haven’t seen just how rapidly the neon trend is taking over the fashion and beauty event. From nails to boots, hemmed skirts and more this bright, statement-making color is pretty much the coolest thing on Instagram right now. While neutrals, darks, and pastels have conquered the fashion scene over the past few years, the sudden rise of neon has led to comparisons with the 80s. Versace‘s Ready-To-Wear collection showcase was all about neon and more. Neon has seen on the runway for Versace‘s Spring Ready-To-Wear line which occurred in 1996. While more subtle colors were favored during the 1970s, ultra-bright colors, comprising hot pink and electric purple, characterized the 1980s, making it the decade of neon. Neon's increased visibility has also made it a favorite among nightlife and festival lovers.
