You know what they say—nothing that goes out of style stays out of style for long. And that couldn’t be truer for this style staple of the ‘80s: neon colors so bright they can’t help being noticed.
Anyone who’s lived through that particular decade (or has seen pictures of those who have) knows that bold and bright colors were definitely one of the top fashion trends during that time. Women thoroughly enjoyed expressing themselves with these colors and standing out from the crowd. And at WITH we’re excited to see that this trend is making a comeback and once again capturing the attention of the fashion world.
More women are ditching black and other neutral colors for bright colored leggings that give an extra wow factor to their workout outfits. But we’re also finding that colored leggings for women are pulling double duty—working just as well for a stylish daytime look as they do for the gym. Far from being too over-the-top, these bright colors give off a fun, upbeat vibe that’s infectious and inspires you to feel good every time you wear them. This makes them the best leggings to wear when you need an extra boost of motivation (like for that early morning kickboxing class you keep meaning to take).
If you’re unsure about this look or want to know what options are out there, we’re going to share some of our favorite pieces of neon activewear for women. We’re pretty sure by the time we get through them you’ll be as in love with the neon look as we are!
These Adder Leggings in blackberry are a showstopping piece of activewear that will make you excited to work out.
