But at the 2021 Emmys, it was actually a particular color category that really caught our eye: neons. Highlighter colors were one of the bigger trend of the night, with stars (and their stylists) opting for shocking yellow and pink shades when choosing their look. As we head into fall, which is known for dark, muted shades, these in-your-face options have us rethinking our wardrobe. There's something so joyful and fun about a neon dress. Take a look at the best ones, ahead.
