Fashion trends come and go, and lately, there’s been a rise in neon colors, especially in the Latin music industry.
Many artists, including Maluma, Becky G and Lali, are using social media to flaunt their neon-colored gear. J Balvin even strutted the 2019 Billboard Latin Music Awards red carpet wearing an all-neon suit. To better understand the fad, Mexican fashion designer and celebrity stylist Angie Escamilla weighs in, giving all the credit to the '80s.
“Artists are using it in their concerts and music videos because it really grabs your attention,” says Escamilla to Billboard. “The color is very vibrant and many high-end designers, such as Dolce & Gabbana and Louis Vuitton, are focused on this trend that’s considered the '80s comeback.”
