Bright splashes of color are everywhere: polka-dot galoshes; multihued plastic Crocs; gaudy hoodies; retro Adidas; black nail polish; mesh T's that make toned bods appear covered in tattoos. People even want replicas of the red glasses actress America Ferrera dons in ABC's Thursday-night hit, Ugly Betty. Before you know it, plastic bracelets a la Madonna and jelly sandals will be back.

But upon closer inspection, the "S" is the first letter in "Super. " And what could be mistaken for a cursive "J" is actually an "F," the first letter of the word "Five. " Despite the similarities to the clothing line designed by rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, the hoodie is part of Super Five, a collaboration between Reebok and Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb.
