Forget Leather: This Is The Material You Need To Try Out This Season

Get into the groove.

share with your friends
It’s a contraversial material, but nevertheless one that’s worked its way into the FW17 collections of Versus VersaceMarniFendi and more: we’re talking about vinyl. And, naturally, it’s been a massive hit across the blogosphere, too, with everyone seeming to have purchased at least one vinyl A-line mini skirt in recent months. 

For anyone worried that they might give off too much of a dominatrix vibe, or worse still, like they fashioned their ruffle pencil skirt from a trash bag, take heed: you can easily blend a vinyl piece into any outfit with contrasting textures. Tuck an oversized, cable knit sweater into a D-ring wrap skirt, pair your skin-tight, sheen pants with loud colors to make the lustre texture feel more like “bright black” and less like “wipe-down for your convenience”. 

Switch out your boyfriend jeans for a pair of paperbag-waist vinyl pants for an edgy daytime look, or try pairing a simple, chic shirt with a plain skirt for an office outfit that’s fierce, but still work-appropriate. 

Plus, with April showers soon to be all over the forecast, what better time of year to try out this water-resistant material?
