Sure, neoprene is commonly used as a material for scuba diving and water sports gear. However, in recent seasons, we have seen designers implement this s synthetic rubber in different garments, from outerwear to footwear even accessories.
Before you go batshit crazy and you start buying every neoprene piece you see, you should know that this fabric is actually a rubber, therefore, it doesn’t breathe well. For that reason, the best seasons to show it up are fall & winter, maybe spring, but just maybe. Otherwise, you’ll be sweating like a pig. – I mean, I love me a sweaty man, however, there’s a place and time for that. Perhaps in my bed?
How do you wear this trend? Keeping it simple is key. Choose a statement neoprene piece and build your outfit around it. A monochromatic look will accentuate the texture of the neoprene and if you mix it with other textures will bring some edge to your ensemble. – I put a crown on my look because this is my party and I can do what I want. #teammiley
