The Plastics: How to Pull off PVC this Season

On Wednesdays, we wear…plastic. Yes, you heard right. While once associated with Tupperware and rain ponchos, the synthetic fabrication has now been elevated to sartorial stardom. Chanel sent thigh high vinyl boots and boater hats down the runway, Tibi continued the corset trend with a transparent twist, the backdrop at Acne was literally a plastic shower curtain, and Celine is selling a PVC grocery inspired bag for $590. Was Aqua right all along – life in plastic is fantastic?

While this trend is divisive to say the least, there are some simple ways to incorporate it into your everyday that actually feel wearable, new, and surprisingly practical. The key is layering the piece with your classic wardrobe staples.

Leather Jacket / White Tee / Jeans / Sunglasses / Hoop Earrings / Rings / Boots / Bag



A see-through trench honestly goes with everything. Pair over an all denim look or a classic camel coat.

The freshest take is the funky plastic fabrication paired back to a classic style. Think cap toe sling back, pointed stiletto, or simple ankle strap. The material is the wow factor.

PVC Slingback Heels




This is one of the easiest ways to jump in. Your bag is now basically stain and weatherproof and has you on the best dressed list. My favorite bags are ones that pair the plastic with a luxe material like leather to keep it elevated.

If the above stated are still making your cringe in fear, add some lucite to your jewelry lineup. Hoop or abstract earrings, thick bangles, and stand-out rings are an easy way to try out the trend.
