All The PVC Outfits And Accessories You Can Actually Pull Off For Everyday

PVC may not be the most conventional choice of everyday wear, but we’re here to show you how to make it look good.

We’ll be honest – PVC has never been at the forefront of our minds when we think about everyday-appropriate outfits. The fashion trend first blew up on the runway in late 2017, thanks to brands such as Balenciaga and Chanel. The next season, adventurous street style stars were spotted donning the trend with gusto when Fashion Week came along.

The easiest way to wear PVC pieces is to incorporate it into your accessories and bags, instead of attempting to make a vinyl raincoat work for you. Take Staud’s Shirley bag for instance, which has a sophisticated and sleek silhouette that satisfies most, if not all who are looking to dabble in this trend.

Below, browse our favourite PVC outfits and pieces.

Shirley crocodile-effect leather and PVC tote, US$190 (S$260), Staud
Staud’s Shirley bag is a firm favourite amongst influencers keen on the plastic fashion trend, thanks to its chic yet relatively minimalist design.   Stand-collar semi-sheer vinyl jacket, US$3,040 (S$4,181), Valentino
Remember what we said about picking sheer jackets over full-length raincoats? This version comes in a romantic shade of pink — and pink is pretty much a neutral these days — making it easy to work into your existing wardrobe. VLTN PVC tote bag, US$850 (S$1,169), Valentino
This tote bag is perfect for anyone who has too much to carry at all times. If you’re worried about the world getting all up in your business, try putting your belongings into interesting pouches, and then place those pouches in the tote bag. Rectangular acetate glasses, US$234 (S$321), Saint Laurent
Clear acetate glasses are a hit or miss for many; some people think it reminds them of lab goggles, while others love its retro feel. We’re firmly in the latter camp. This one from Saint Laurent is chic enough to trick others into thinking we’re smart and stylish.   Marie Jane PVC bucket bag, US$1,453 (S$1,998), Christian Louboutin
If tote bags and strapless offerings aren’t for you, then consider this practical bucket bag. As an added bonus, it’s also iridescent. Now that’s a statement-maker. Cora top-handle beaded acrylic bag, US$195 (S$268), Cult Gaia
Remember how every other It-girl was obsessed with Cult Gaia’s Ark bag? We don’t blame them, for the brand does put out covetable and interesting designs. This one’s reminiscent of Shrimps’ Antonia bag without being an outright rip-off, and is perfect for the beaded bag trend popular amongst fashion folks these days. X Betina de Luca perspex hoop earrings, US$163 (S$224), Wai Wai
You can never go wrong with statement earrings, even if the rest of your outfit screams basic. This pair of perspex earrings features clean lines, with multi-coloured gem insets to keep things interesting. Clear box grab bag with cross body chain, S$59.29, True Decadence
At less than $60, this box bag is a steal. We love the sharp lines and cool hardware. Pair this with a cute sundress for maximum impact Geneva Earring – Clear, US$88 (S$121), Cult Gaia
This pair of earrings is a little more low-key, so for all you Phoebe Philo stans out there, this one’s for you.   Slim-leg vinyl trousers, US$1,186 (S$1,631), Valentino
Sure, vinyl trousers aren’t the most comfortable, but fashion is pain. Wear black vinyl trousers with a plain pussy bow blouse for a look that’s equal parts edgy and romantic.
