PVC trousers are everywhere: from designer brands such as Saint Laurent and Ellery to Miss PAP and Pretty Little Thing everybody seems to be flirting on the trend. What used to be reserved for private parties behind closed doors is now gracing street style shoots and surprisingly look pretty cool!
I would say that the secret to wear the PVC trousers is the styling – if you’re over 20 you can’t away with it unless you dress it up with a white or stripe shirt and a tailored jacket or like me a peplum jacket or you need to dress it down with an oversized sweater à la Kourtney Kardashian but beware of this option unless you finish your outfit with towering heels and a full face of makeup you’re very likely to look frumpy, especially if you have curves just like me .
I’m in love with the Saint Laurent PVC trousers but as a first attempt I went for a Topshop option to try this hot new tend on me. I’ve teamed it up with a wool peplum jacket by Louis Vuitton which I adore and is perfect for transitional seasons as it can be worn on its own or underneath a coat. To finish my outfit I’ve added some Mary-Janes from Camilla Elphick and some mix matched earrings from my fav high street store &Other Stories.
