One of the biggest fashion trends of the season? Neon. Pulling off the highlighter look isn't for everyone, but for those who do want to experiment with a bright and bold aesthetic, you don't have to venture very far because right now, neon is everywhere, from makeup and accessories to ready-to-wear and resort wear. Vanessa Hudgens just made the case for taking neon to the beach with her latest Instagram post. On Monday, the 33-year-old actress shared a group of photos from her Italian vacation, including one snap of her floating in the water while wearing a neon-green string bikini with turquoise trim. The bikini is from the popular swimwear destination Frankie's Bikinis, and it happens to currently be on sale.
The prevalence of Barbiecore and this past season's Valentino runway show brought neon pink to the forefront of everyone's minds and closets, but contrasting tones of green are another palette making a splash in the style scene. And swimwear isn't just for actual swimming. Hudgens proved that you can take a neon bikini out of the water, too. The "Second Act" actress wore the bright two-piece out to an al fresco lunch, where the pops of neon could be seen peeking out from underneath an oversize white button-down. She continued to get major mileage out of the bikini, keeping it on during a scenic hike. For that look, she chose the same breezy white button-down and vintage-style white denim shorts.
If you haven't been keeping track, summer 2022 is turning out to be the season of the bikini photo shoot for Hudgens, at least according to her Instagram. She's shown appreciation for just about every swim style possible, from bright-red underwires and black maillots to the neon Barbiecore trend she wore just one week ago.
