Neoprene isn’t a fabric you would normally see in fashion, let alone consider for everyday wear and was previously used for scuba or surfing. But Givenchy, Calvin Klein and Robert Geller have transformed neoprene texture into a statement piece. Also, high-street brands like Topman and ASOS have switched up neoprene, infusing small neoprene detail on casual tees and sweats to create something all more wearable.

Neoprene is a chemical structure and comes in a range of textures, sizes and colours, with the fabric itself extremely versatile and breathable, meaning you can easily switch up and enthuse neoprene in to any outfit from now to winter.

PAUSE loves the Givenchy neoprene printed sweatshirt. With extra-long length and simplistic star and stripes detail, it can be used in any outfit, layering over a long sleeve shirt or tee, which can be re-purposed for with a tapered trouser and classic slip-on trainer for a more formal look.
