There is a new reigning queen of neon activewear, and her name is Barbie. Well, it's Margot Robbie dressed as Barbie, as seen in set pics from the upcoming Greta Gerwig-directed Barbie movie. But you catch my drift.
Margot. Looks. Fire. In the pictures, she's rollerblading while wearing a multi-colored high-cut neon leotard over some bright pink bike shorts—'80s fitness class style. The perfect accessories? A matching multi-colored visor along with neon green blades, knee pads, and elbow pads, of course. (Fashionable) safety first!

From bike shorts to tennis shoes, neon has been having a moment for a few years now (one can argue it's been a consistent aesthetic for decades), but Robbie-as-Barbie gives the trend even more ammunition by rocking the retro neon activewear look so incredibly hard. Big ups to Ryan Gosling as Ken, who doesn't look so shabby in his reflective gear, either.
And we're... Jealous?! More like envious, and ready to justify our athleisure choices with the refrain that imitation is the highest form of flattery. So if you want to channel your inner Margot/Barbie, here are some neon activewear pieces that will have you rocking neon all summer long.
Neon activewear for doing your best Barbie
Starting with a strong neon leotard base (it’s technically a one-piece swimsuit—so you can wear it to the pool, too)? A necessity. This baby also comes in lime green and other neon colors. Choose from 16 different bright colors, including highlighter yellow and chartreuse. The fabric is ultra soft and moves with you as you go.
Can’t complete the bladin’ look without some biker shorts. We think this neon green will go great with your new pink leotard. Crafted from a stretchy, supportive jersey knit, you can get these shorts in hot pink or yellow.
The name of the color of this dress—”Electric Lemon”—says it all. We’ll always say yes to a fitness dress—especially this one from Lululemon, which features built-in mesh shorts, fast-drying fabric, and pockets(!!!).
Top off the look with a visor. This one will literally wipe the sweat from your brow. Made of terry fabric, it’s almost like wearing a towel on your head. But make it fashion.
A neon windbreaker is just what you need to reach top speeds while you’re blading up a storm. (We generally wouldn’t recommend fast fashion, but this ’90s-inspired jacket is just too campy-fun.) Function-wise, we can’t complain—it comes with plenty of pockets and zippers, and the fit is true to size.
