Are you ready to dive in to this season’s hot scuba trend?  We are!

Aquatic inspired collections have reigned supreme on the runways lately.  From splashes of blues and greens, to bold neon and scale-like sequins, designers have found a way to infuse oceanic elements into their designs.

No one has quite mastered the look better than Proenza Schouler. The young designers have made a name for designing fresh and youthful pieces while maintaining classic elements in their looks.

Their Spring/Summer 2010 collection proved to be one of the most memorable collections of that season and it single-handedly brought the scuba style aesthetic to the masses.

Neoprene, bold pops of neon, and scuba gear detailing like front side zippers were signatures of the collection.  Starlets Kate Bosworth and Kristen Stewart have been longtime fans and were spotted soon after in the bold scuba-inspired designs.

Since then, Peter Pilotto, VPL and Rag & Bone and have incorporated  elements from the scuba suit into their collections, and there’s no sign of this look waning.

Whether your style is feminine or leans more toward edgy, rocker vibes, we’ve put together a look that will help you master this absolutely splashing trend.
