Last September during the Spring/Summer 2019 runway shows, we saw a lot of lime green strutting down the runway. Fashion Week is typically where new trends debut and designers were spot on about how popular the bold shade would become. Shows are set 6 months ahead of their desired seasons, but it didn’t take long for brands like Fashion Nova and Pretty Little Thing to hop on the neon wave. The trend continued well into the following season, as designers from Sies Marjan to Matthew Adams Dolan brightened up their Fall/Winter 2019 collections with the electric hue. We must admit, a bright shade does make our melanin pop.
If you search “lime green” on Fashion Nova, you’ll see a number of swimsuits, crop tops and snakeskin buys ready to light up the room. To be exact, Fashion Nova has 2,218 items that all include the slimy trend.
And while trends come and go, don’t be so quick to write this one off. At Spring 2020 Men’s Fashion Week, the bright color emerged on runways one again, which means next year will be no different. Newly popular London-based brand Mowalola featured a few cow print looks in lime green. Italian label Zegna showcased a light green pant in their look book and Feng Chen Wang used lime green accents to brighten her colllection.
If you were getting tired of seeing this blinding shade, you’re out of luck; the fashion set is still obsessed with it for 2020. Check out our neon style feature with Tonya and Satchel Lee for some some easy tips on how to wear the hue.
