Neoprene Fashion Trend


Surf's up! There's a new trend that has hit the textile department when it comes to our clothing. What is this new trend? Neoprene.

A fabric that is typically used for scuba gear and surf attire, neoprene has recently hit the runways and fashion shows, showing us that it is a new textile worth taking a second look at.  This textile is super smooth to the touch, quite pliable, lightweight, and maintains its structural form quite effortlessly.  And there are many ways to wear this new textile that might surprise you.

One of the most popular forms that this textile is utilized in, when it comes to fashion, are neoprene skater skirts.  These type of skirts are pretty easy to find, are available in a myriad of bright, bold colors, and these skirts easily maintain their form. A pleated neoprene skater skirt is your best option, for achieving an ultra feminine silhouette.


Another piece that neoprene is showing up in, is a sweater. I know, I know, you may be surprised to realize that neoprene sweaters are quite popular now. Just looking at these photos in this post, you may not have even realized that neoprene was the textile used.  What's great about a neoprene top, is that it maintains a smooth, classic shape, works great in neutral colors, and maintains your form.
