This spring has brought an unpredictable material to the runway; one that is not often seen in fashion: Clear vinyl. From jackets to shoes to jewelry, this strong material is a force to be reckoned with. By relying on soft silhouettes and adding in small details, such as buttons and edging, this otherwise chintzy material has inherited a high-end elegance. For this transitional season, the use of clear vinyl is a great way to cover up while allowing the summer fashions a sneak peak.
This transitional move to fashion has given clear vinyl a new life. It has shape and structure that allows for easy formation while allowing for unique detailing. Clear vinyl, as any sheer material, is a great material for layering. Whether a full coverage or small detail, clear vinyl has a personality that can dress any body, or space.
