The concept is a barely there illusion that’s fresh and playful and allows the focus to remain on your clothes. Just be sure to keep the rest of your outfit crisp—i.e, don’t go full-on ’90s baby. Are you convinced? Here, peruse our edit of stylish PVC shoes for summer—all a modest approach to the throwback trend.
