Vinyl Pants: Will You Go There This Winter?
One of the most terrifying words in fashion has to be vinyl. How can a material that’s essentially plastic be something you’d want to wear? And how can it be comfortable? That’s not for us to decide, but we can help convince you that the vinyl pants trend is something worth considering for winter this year. The trend has been gaining popularity over the past few months, taking off overseas during fashion month. We spotted the fashion crowd wearing all different iterations of the shiny fabric—from coats, to skirts, to dresses, but it’s the pants that proved to be the most popular.
Vinyl (or patent leather if you prefer the splurge option) is a tricky fabric to wear—it’s a fine line between chic and tacky, and you know which side of the spectrum we sit on. The way to make it work is in the styling, and ensuring you consider the other pieces you’re pairing with your show-stopping pants.
Kendall Jenner has already stepped out in the trend and showed us exactly how to dress it down, yet still turn heads. But the question we have for you is, will you go there this season?
