Dive In! Our Favorite Scuba-Inspired Fashions

Neoprene—the material wetsuits are made out of—is not what first comes to mind when thinking of a cute new dress. Turns out, materials like it are really great for creating figure-flattering, structured pieces that make us swoon. Here are our top picks for this who-would-have-thunk-it trend.

Nasty Gal Soft Armor Dress

1 / 11

Curve-hugging style gets an edgy update with a gold chainmail neckline in a cool-girl formal look we absolutely love. Perfect for your next upscale event or downtown date, there's no better way to rock a scuba dress than by picking one with built-in bling!

Clover Canyon Neoprene Dress

2 / 11

We are loving mirror prints this season, and now trends combine in this beautiful body-con dress. With a rich color palette and depth in the patterning, you only need minimal styling and accessorizing to be a knock-out in this number.

Romeo & Juliet Couture Floral-Printed Neoprene Tank Dress

3 / 11

Can a scuba dress be super-feminine? This one has us convinced. Watercolor peonies line both sides of the dress, creating a slimming vertical focal point in a look that's both hip and girly.

Type Z Oba Scuba Skirt

4 / 11

A flirty, swingy skater skirt in neon? Count us in! This style works well with crop tops, chambray, and even blazers.

Nasty Gal Dot Mesh Crop Top

5 / 11

Scuba style doesn't always have to mean body-conscious fits. This flirty crop top is looser fitting with a neoprene-style bodice, but still sexy with sheer arms and shoulders. Super cute with high-waisted pants or a maxi skirt, this top is subtle and charming.

Gabriella Rocha Luce Floral Scuba Peplum Skirt

6 / 11

One of scuba fabric's greatest draws? How great it makes structured styles look. Playful peplums look better than ever when they are done in flattering and shape-holding fabric. The floral details in this skirt elevate it from wardrobe basic to statement piece. Style accordingly.

Scuba Colorblock Dress by Rhyme Los Angeles

7 / 11

Fresh, bright colors pop on this interesting shift dress. You can make your look sporty by rocking a high pony and wedge sneakers, or dress it up for the office--the high neckline is begging to be set off with a glamorous statement necklace.

Wyatt Emerald Scuba Peplum Top

8 / 11

Test out the Pantone color of the year in this gorgeous emerald peplum top. In such an on-trend and versatile color and fit, this top would look crisp with dark denim or white jeans. Add your favorite sparkly earrings and you'll be a knockout.

Sleeveless Cutout Back Scuba Dress by Michael Kors

9 / 11

We are drooling over the gorgeous combination of sporty edge and girly flair in this neoprene dress. The bright pink is undeniably cheery, but the tough black structuring gives this dress serious edge. 

Nasty Gal Diamond Girl Peplum Dress

10 / 11

This dress has enough trendy details to satisfy fashionistas everywhere! Structured top, keyhole cutout, flattering peplum...what more could you ask for? Add a box clutch for a look that's very of-the-moment.

Stripe Scuba Dress by Glamorous

11 / 11

A trend as quirky as scuba may be difficult to translate into everyday wear, but when it's styled as classically as this dress, it's hard to go wrong. Navy and cream stripes and an A-line skirt make this dress universally flattering, as well as appropriate for the office or a party.
