One of my fave trends that’s carrying over from winter to spring is vinyl / patent pieces— the shiny material last seen on your Mary Janes from kindergarten has made a resurgence in the streetstyle world and I’m digging it.
I wear patent/ vinyl the same way and according to the same “rules” as I would leather or faux leather pieces. To avoid a Pretty Woman – streetwalker- pre makeover- vibe, I always pair vinyl with something boyish— a sneaker, a blazer, a tee shirt… or something oversized and soft, like a big sweater, a cotton hoodie… you get the idea!
Now i KNOW that most people are prob cringing at the thought of wearing this material, but let me put things in perspective: rewind the fashion game tape to, oh say, 10 years ago- how many women saw leather leggings coming down the runways and were like “awww hellllll nooooo no way I’m looking like a hooker in those pants”… and now have at least two pairs of leather or faux leather pants and jackets hanging in their closets?! Some of the best trends are scary at first…so I want to urge you guys to try this one now! Below, show my Six Picks for vinyl/ patent pieces for spring:
