How To Wear Vinyl The High-Fashion Way

From the office to the club.

After Christopher Bailey unveiled his latest collection for Burberry during London Fashion Week, we can officially confirm that plastic is back. While a traditional PVC raincoat is a practical sartorial choice for this transitional weather, the vinyl trend has gained momentum in other departments, too. 

We loved the transparent trenches that Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons styled over colorful outfits last season, but lately we’ve been spotting a huge variety of waterproof pieces: from skirts and  jackets to bags. 

The key to rocking this look without looking like an extra from the Bad Blood video (or one of Christian Gray’s exes), is layering. Soften the sharp, shiny finish of a vinyl skirt with a fluffy sweater and earthy accessories for a casual look. Alternatively, work a plastic pant into your work wardrobe by styling it with a luxurious silk blouse to complement the texture. 

Alternatively, try a Burberry-style opaque piece with a pattern printed into the fabric and a color-accent top worn underneath for a real statement look. If you’d rather start small with this trend, try toting a plastic bag or a clear bootie with a glitter sock for a style that is sheer genius.
