Once a fabric only worn for surfing or swimming in the cold British sea, neoprene has become a trend staple on the catwalks and in our wardrobes. Forget wetsuits this summer neoprene clothing will add a sporty yet sleek edge to any outfit you put together whether you’re working out or going out out.
Why does neoprene fit so well?
Firm and smoothing with the perfect amount of stretch, neoprene is an ideal fabric for fitted clothes that give a bit of extra hold. It’s smooth, matt texture gives any look an edge while the stretch and recovery will allow you to wear your neoprene clothing again and again without it losing its shape or perfect fit. The form fitting fabric also has added benefits such as being temperature regulating and a comfortable, soft touch making them ideal to wear as a smart pair of work trousers all day long too.
Where to wear neoprene
Thanks to the activewear trend, you can wear neoprene practically anywhere and everywhere. From neoprene leggings to fitted crop tops, you’ll look and feel perfectly toned when you opt for this fitted look. Neoprene has also made it’s way into our formal wardrobes with cult brands such a Commando bringing out a range of tops, trousers and skirts that can be mix and matched together to create figure-flattering, eye-catching looks.
How to wear neoprene
While opting for brighter shades of neoprene will add an ’80s-inspired element to your look, chic black separates will elevate any outfit. Keeping it chic and sleek for nights out, Commando’s neoprene flared leggings are ideal for showing off your figure. Team them with high heels and a statement blouse, or match with the Commando neoprene crop top for a more glamorous skin-baring outfit. The soft to touch fabric stretches so you can tuck in tops for endless styling options.
