PVC / See-through Fashion Trend

Of all the trends making their way from the runway into our wardrobes, transparent plastic was perhaps the hardest to see coming. Polyurethane is having a moment. The SS18 catwalks were awash with see-through shoes, coats, hats, and bags in thick, shiny plastic.


Some fashion trends are tricky to pull off in real life, no matter how savvy your style. One such look? PVC. The ’90s throwback made a splash last summer via sandals with see-through straps. Then, Chanel took it to new heights on its Spring 2018 runway, showing clear boots, slickers and accessories en masse.

The good news is there are stylish, real-girl ways to rock PVC. Utilize a transparent piece as an unexpected accent against classic staples like a black dress, a tie-waist skirt or jeans. This way, it reads playful yet tasteful. Ahead, see what we mean as we put together three fail-safe outfits.





The key to wearing this in real life, and not feel like you’re dressed in some sort of weird bondage vibe, is to pick a single piece of PVC and style up with something simple and sophisticated, like an oversized crisp stripe shirt with vinyl pants or a white tee under your plastic mac.
