It's no secret that PVC heels have been a true wardrobe staple in recent seasons. Although it may look daring, the trend is surprisingly easy to wear — whether you're looking for a completely clear sandal or something more subdued, the market is chock-full of options for every taste. The most recent evidence? Priyanka Chopra's PVC pumps, which prove you can make a statement trend look incredibly timeless.
Chopra stepped out on May 11 alongside her husband, Nick Jonas, to attend the Saturday Night Live after party in New York City. She fought the chilly New York temperatures in a white, longline silk blazer and a shimmery silver midi skirt. Chopra kept the rest of her accessories minimal, choosing to wear a single silver necklace and a white bag with gold detailing from Yuzefi.
Chopra's pale nude heels are designed by Gianvito Rossi and feature a pointed toe cap and PVC detailing along both sides. Unsurprisingly, the actor isn't the first celebrity to opt for the statement heels. In fact, the Duchess of Sussex, who also happens to be a close friend of Chopra's, has sported the same silhouette. Back in Jan., Meghan Markle debuted Chopra's heels in a punchy cow print, proving just how versatile the style really is.
Vinyl has been making a major impact since it came into the market a few years ago. Chanel lead the charge in 2017, featuring everything from PVC thigh-high rain boots to wide-brimmed hats during its Spring/Summer 2018 show at Paris Fashion Week. More recently, Adeam sent an assortment of orange-tinted plastic belts and trench coats down its Spring/Summer 2019 runway.
Although PVC heels may look like a major departure from your go-tos, the trend is actually quite easy to wear. If you're worried about making too much of a statement with your heels, try opting for PVC silhouettes that are more laid-back in nature (think: low heels and slingbacks). The timelessness of the style contrasted with the trendiness of the clear plastic create a unique, modern look every time.
