Celebrity trend alert: How to pull off neon, highlighter-yellow tops like Bella Hadid, Aimee Song, and other key fashion influencers
Bright young things
Forget Living Coral: highlighter yellow, this season's top street-style shade, is decidedly less natural-looking (although we're aware that biofluorescence is a common occurrence, especially among marine life) than its soft, orange-pink peer. We could bore you with the mechanics behind eye-searingly bright colours, but instead, consider this; fashion's top dogs, Ms Bella Hadid included, have been pushing neon hard since the dawn of 2019, often using an accent piece to add punch to otherwise neutral outfits. Like popping super-sour Warhead candy — remember those? — the visual kick of highlighter yellow is intense... And irresistible.
Below, the celeb 'grams that have us itching for some fluorescent fun:
Bella Hadid (@bellahadid)
The model played up the safety-gear connection with a pocket-covered Louis Vuitton vest.
Aimee Song (@songofstyle)
The prolific vlogger layered neutral separates over her bright, bright fine-knit turtleneck.
Leomie Anderson (@leomieanderson)
The British catwalker topped her look off with quintessentially-street blue denim and a bright-orange beanie.
Tabitha Nauser (@tabithanauser)
The Singaporean singer went the athleisure route with a sporty crop top and bumbag-as-crossbody combo.
Patricia Manfield (@patriciamanfield)
The influencer and aspiring music artist made the effortless choice — a roomy, relaxed-fit T-shirt.
