Previously reserved for raincoats and dominatrix costumes, PVC has become the material of choice for fashion’s MVPs. From Marc Jacobs to Chanel, the spring/summer runways were covered in plastic, and it didn’t take long for the trend to hit the streets—and the feet of a few Kardashians— in just about every way, shape and form.
So, whether you want to start slow with a simple boot, or take it full on with an iconic trench coat, get ready for spring (and a chance of rain) with these eight inspired looks.
Wear the Pants
Vinyl is the new leather. Style your sleek PVC pants with casual basics and a clear tote for an updated everyday look.
Get Your Feet Wet
If you’re not ready to dive into this trend head first, dip your toes in the water with a clear cool bootie.
We love the effect this material has on deep and rich colors. Here, you can play with texture in a neutral palette.
Street style stars rocked this bold red color in full monochrome looks. We love a red PVC trench coat as an impactful statement for a more everyday approach.
Swap your leather moto jacket for a shiny alternative that’s a new take on a wardrobe staple. Pair it with your on-trend combat boots for a rocker-chic look.
See It Through
Clear coats aren’t just for the rain. We love translucent outerwear over a cute, color blocked dress.
From coats to accessories, designers are wrapping their designs in a clear coated layer. You don’t have to style it any differently than you normally would; the PVC just adds a cool component to your look.
An “it” item of the season, this PVC coat is the perfect statement piece to pair with everyday basics.
Here’s another NYFW look we love: the colored fur trend you simply must have.
