WHO: Blake Lively spotted around New York City in a monochrome SS19 Versace suit, the Prabal Gurung SS19 show, Rainbow Brite, the game Lite-Brite, Sarah Paulson in Prada at the Ocean’s 8 premiere and Tracee Ellis Ross at the 2018 Emmys in Valentino Haute Couture.

WHAT: Neon colors, which first starting making their comeback in 2018, are trending in a big way for 2019 in high fashion ensembles, streetwear, swimwear and accessories. The bright, bold, saturated tones have brought a refreshing complement to the neutrals that have been on the scene.

WEAR: (Top to Bottom) From Mykita’s Lite Collection, the Minttu optical style, crafted in stainless steel is vamped up with its bold choice of color for a sleek yet vibrant look. The Kayak frame from l.a. Eyeworks takes a different approach to the neon look. For a more subtle feel, the frame is featured in black on the front with a surprise pop of neon yellow as a funky backside laminate. Kering’s Courréges model CL1901 shows off a trendy construction with its neon green brow bar, which adds a lively look to this neon color story. Luxottica’s Oakley brings the fun to its performance eyewear with the Splatterfade collection. This Splatter Neon Pink style featuring the Prizm Trail lens shows off a neon pink base with lively blues and yellows splattered across the frame for a definite ode to the 80s and 90s.

WHY: Bright, bold, lively and fun are the ingredients that make up these neon frame looks. In both sun and optical, the neon color story is definitely making a splash in eyewear from subtle backside accents to full-on neon looks. These perfect spring/summer tones are the ideal way to say goodbye to winter.
