It's back, bitches! To go along with your shoulder pads, you can now have your pick of '80s inspired neon-colored clothing. Aren't you excited? Unlike the "accentuated shoulder," which is a silhouette that's gone in and out of style for centuries, neon is very much of a certain decade and it's a decade that most of us who lived through have no desire to revisit. Still, you just can't underestimate the power of nostalgia and it was only a matter of time before eye-searing colors made a return to the runway.
Of the following, it really only looks like Duchess Kors (and some of the Versace) recycled the original neons exactly as they appeared in the infant days of MTV. The rest of what you see here, the fashion editors like to call "neon" but it's more of an interpreted version of the original. From where we're sitting, most of the following could just be called "really bright pastels." They evoke the originals, but in a more toned-down version, thank Jesus. We really like the Marc Jacobs pallete, as well as the Hilfiger and Jill Sander looks. We think the Narciso Rodriguez colors are just plain ugly.
