Neoprene. It’s the stuff wetsuits are made from. And – we know this sounds far-fetched – it’s going to be what some of your favourite clothes are made from this year.

Sure, it looks a bit unusual, but neoprene has a lot going for it. It’s waterproof and it has a really neat, “finished” look to it. And it won’t get grubby easily, so you’ll always look nice and clean.

Hover over the images for stockist info…

Boxfresh is celebrating its 25th anniversary by releasing a special collection featuring a bunch of brilliant neoprene pieces. The pick of the bunch is a minty-fresh green tracksuit that will make you look and feel like a badass athlete from the future.

And if that’s a bit too weird, try matching the jumper with denim shorts and plimsolls for a more casual look.
