Trend Alert: Issa Rae's Bold Fashion Look Is Sure To Be Everywhere This Summer
Move over, melodramatic lavender and chunky dad sneakers. At last night’s CFDA awards—only one of the biggest nights (after the Met Gala, obvi) to spot the who’s who of the fashion world—host Issa Rae debuted a gorgeous wide-leg 1980s-style electric-green pantsuit onstage, and we’re calling it: The eye-searing neon lime color is going to be all over this summer.
When we see the hue, we immediately think of summer: ice pops, freshly manicured lawns and watermelon rinds. And it actually looks good on every skin tone due to its so-bright-it-kinda-hurts glow and “HEY! LOOK AT ME!” hue, which makes us feel like we’re in some sort of“Wild Thoughts” meets Havana, Cuba–inspired music video.
Even Busy Phillipps rocked another iteration of the verdant shade (again, in pantsuit form!), and we’re already scouring the internet for bags, nail polish, earrings, shoes and dresses in the bright neon shade.
So, yellow for summer? Groundbreaking.
