HOW TO STYLE VINYL TROUSERS

Whoa, that’s a bit…kinky!- exclaimed Trish when I came to pick her up (little did I know I was walking around with fractured ankle) on Friday. We were going to Mr Bao for a dinner and a round of cocktails. Which is a perfectly appropriate venue for PVC trousers, non? “Wow, nie za bardzo perwersyjne?-zapytala Trish kiedy przyszlam po nia (nie wiedzac, ze chodze z rozlupana koscia w kostce) w piatek po drodze do Mr Bao. Mialysmy w planie obiad i koktajle. Lokalna tajwanska knajpa jest jak najbardziej odpowiednia aby wystroic sie w PCV, czyz nie? 

The thing is- despite their, hmm…kinky connotation, it was love at first sight. I kept telling you about them in my previous posts yet so far I haven’t been able to buy a flattering pair. Skinnies are always a risk for me so unless I can try them on in the shop first, I won’t buy them online. I visited high street only to find that Topshop and H&M vinyl pants were sold out and Zara’s loose, cropped pair just looked plain wrong on me. I almost abandoned the idea until I saw these on Asos. They were cut like my old Wranglers which I wore in the 90’s. I ordered them immediately.

For me, they are not that different than leather trousers when it comes to styling. Just like leather trousers, they can look overtly sexy if paired with a wrong top or shoes. On Friday evening I opted for men’s t-shirt (which I bought for The French but I’m the one wearing it) and grey sweatshirt, which you can’t see on the photos. In the future I will also pair them with a simple grey or black cashmere jumper or a boxy men’s t-shirt. As for shoes, I think I’ll probably wear flats, loafers or sneakers. I’ll also try them with my kitten heel Valentino Rockstuds and I think plain black crew neck jumper or a bit oversized men’s shirt will go with this look best.

Would you wear PVC trousers? Admittedly, I haven’t yet seen anyone in my area wearing them but hey, they’ve sold out in Topshop and H&M so someone must have bought them 🙂

Mimo dosc oczywistych konotacji, do moich vinylowych spodni zapalalam miloscia od pierwszego wejrzenia. W poprzednich postach kilka razy juz o nich wspomnialam ale az do teraz nie udalo mi sie kupic odpowiedniej pary. Zw wzgledu na mojej proporcje, mam problemy z kupowaniem rurek w sieci bez mierzenia. Odwiedzilam zatem sieciowki. W Topshopie i H&M vinylowe spodnie byly wyprzedane. Fason z Zary byl za szeroki i przykrotki. Juz prawie sie poddalam kiedy a stronie Asos zobaczylam moja pare. Poniewaz mialy fason Wranglerow, ktore nosilam w latach 90-tych, zamowilam je natychmiast.

Jesli chodzi o to z czym mozna je zestawic, nie roznia sie one dla mnie od skorzanych spodni. Podobnie jak one, maja potencjal aby wygladac zbyt drapieznie i wulgarnie, jesli sa zestawione z niewlasciwa gora lub butami. W piatek wybralam meski podkoszulek (kupilam go dla The French ale sama go nosze) i szara, sprana bluze. Bede je tez nosic do moich meskich, kaszmirowych swetrow i prostych, meskich podkoszulkow. Jesli chodzi o buty to raczej plaskie, loafery lub trampki. Mysle tez, ze moga swietnie wygladac ma moimi niskimi Valentino Rockstuds, polaczone z czarnym, prostym swetrem lub czarnym, delikatnie za duzym podkoszulkiem.

Czy ubralybyscie spodnie PVC? W mojej dzielnicy Londynu nie widzialam w nich nikogo ale w koncu ktos musial je kupic skoro wszedzie sa wyprzedane 🙂
