The Fashion Girl’s Guide To Wearing The Plastic Trend

Perhaps, the real highlight of Spring 2018 Fashion Week is the unexpected rise of the plastic trend. You heard that right–PVC ruled the runways of Chanel, Valentino, Balenciaga, and more. Plastic raincoats and hats were turned into statement pieces while button-downs and jumpsuits in the textures of garbage and grocery bags were spun into ultra-chic oversized garbs.

Although plastic is considered more of a functional material than luxury, high fashion turned it into something stylish and awe-inspiring.

In the essence of breaking the rules and going out of the box, below are trendy pieces to shop for you to sport the latest plastic fashion trend:
