Hi-Shine Hero

Fashion / August 12, 2017

Life in plastic it’s fantastic from patent, vinyl, gloss, PVC, or whatever you want to call it, it’s set to be one of autumn’s major trends when it comes to outerwear. The ultimate transitional layer – it totally doubles up as a rain coat for the unpredictable rainy Irish weather. Practical and fashionable, what’s not to love?

The key to cracking the vinyl coat code is styling it up with low-key items like track pants, slim-fit trousers, a hoody or t-shirt and cropped jeans a la Alexa – the hyper-shine coat will instantly update the most casual of looks.

Although black is the most understated shade for patent – don’t shy away from vinyl in vibrant hues like this crayola green coat, perfectly paired with a pop of red – Christmasy it is not. See, red and green can be seen.

Continuing on with the red theme – combine the hot colour of autumn with vinyl to get double the trend whammy. Keep it chic, less Britney in Oops I did it again video, with a coat in a classic shape and go neutral with the rest of your outfit.

If in doubt, go for black – it will go with everything in your wardrobe and easy to style up with your favourite pieces whether it’s oversized and sporty or hyper-glossy and low-key in jeans.
