Trend Alert: High-visibility gear getting a fashion makeover

5 Stars

With so much construction going on all over Manhattan, I’ve noticed a ton of high-visibility gear being worn in my neighborhood.  I like it.  Nike made a big splash with it at the Barcelona Olympics in 2012 but then it disappeared from the scene.  This year, however, it has become dominant on the streets of the Lower East Side. Also seeing more bikers wearing it. And on a recent visit to Fleet Farm in Wisconsin, the mecca of all things high-vis, I got a first hand look at top brands in the space e.g. Tingley, Radians De Walt line and 3M.

See more pics below on the high-vis trend moving beyond construction into fashion and accessories, sportswear, doggie gear and even livestock!
