The scuba chic evolved

Last spring any mention of scuba was to be taken fairly literally. The trend centred around clinging diving-suit cuts, neon panels, exposed zips and neoprene-gone-luxe. But 2012 is the year of swirling influences of trends, and now it doesn’t matter if it’s Prada’s 50s inspired bodysuits or a floral Cavalli jacket; the neoprene plays second fiddle. It’s all about femininty infused with a sporty sensibility, and the crowning glory of a wet look hairstyle.

Shot by Thomas Cooksey for Flair Italy’s April 2012 issue, nothing makes that fact clearer than this shoot of Ali Stephens. Vittoria Cerciello’s styling mixes it up but still keeps the romance of underwater diving well intact.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
