Most of you are familiar with forms that highlight required fields. The problem with that is that most fields are required, so you end up having to highlight everything creating a clutter of asterisks or sub-labels.

I want to share with you a different approach that is much more minimalist. Feel free to chime in and let me know what you think.

Hi,

I found the idea of tagging each field inside it better than the usual approach but... I presonally think it's better to have only the fields that are required and remove the rest. I find it more honest and clear.
