How to Wear Vinyl NOW

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

There’s a lot happening in fashion right now. Like, a lot, a lot. But don’t stress, we’re here to guide you through the craziest trends so you can pull them off IRL. 

SO LET’S TALK ABOUT VINYL. This high-shine fabric is everywhere right now, from the backs of our fave fashion bloggers to the AW17/18 catwalks. It’s sassy, super modern appeal is calling out to us B-I-G time. But when it comes to styling it right, we get why you might be stumped. That seriously glossy finish makes for a pretty strong statement, even if your confidence is peaking to RiRi levels. The key really lies in what you pair it with.


To ease you in, lets start small. If you’re not 100% convinced on vinyl yet, we recommend weaving in one tiny element of it into your look at a time. A red heeled boot here, an inky black biker there. Baby steps. A cute floral dress will balance out all that sexy shine, FYI.



We like to think of our vinyl mini skirts as phase 2 of nailing this trend. The black version looks super cute either dressed up with a shirt and heels when you’re heading #OUTOUT or dressed down for day with a cute knit.



If you’re all about colour, we got you. this little baby comes in muted burgundy – a v office friendly option – bubblegum pink, cobalt blue and bold red. Again, delicate florals are your friend here. If you wanna go low-key, a cute slogan tee is ideal.



Ok, now you’re confidence is actually peaking lets bring in the big guns. A fave of Bella Hadid and Alexa Chung, vinyl trousers are so hot RN. To style them right, you’re gonna need a simple top with a hint of a fashion edge – kinda like our White Poplin Volume Sleeve T-Shirt, modelled by our vinyl vixen Amy here 👇



We’re also loving some slingback action and a statement hoop earring for this look, just for bonus style points. If you do wanna take this look into casual Saturdays, switch in a simple slogan tee and pristine trainers.



We’re loving the ’60s mod appeal of our Black Vinyl Shift Dress. The key to pulling this one off is L-A-Y-E-R-S. Just check that nonchalant striped jersey and knit tied on the waist combo 👇



For day, just add trainers. Post 6pm, lose the knit and reach for a midi heel. Chiiiiiiiic.


So by now, we’re gonna assume you’re massively into the whole vinyl thang. In which case, prepare to crush hard on our sweet sweet Red Vinyl Mac (which also comes in classic black BTW).

Packing some serious street style appeal, this gem of an outerlayer will instantly upgrade even the most lazy, I-found-it-on-my-bedroom-floor outfit. Jeans? Yep. Joggers and trainers? Sure. We’re currently throwing it over our #OOTD errrrrrryday.



We hope you’ve enjoyed this little vinyl love-in. To shop all vinyl, head here.
