How To Wear The PVC Trend In Real Life


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. Meaning? If anything, this trend is gaining momentum.

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.
