Red PVC is back and you need to try it
Roses are red, violets are blue and PVC is officially back!
If there’s one 2000s trend that I remember fondly, it’s red PVC. Slick, sleek and utterly on fleek, every “It”girl from Christina Aguilera to Britney Spears were never caught dead without it. Although it was not an everyday street style staple, the timelessness of shiny red vinyl brings that lacquered lewk to liven up any outfit.
If you haven’t tried this trend, get ready to load up on some goodies.
1. The Bardot meets Baldwin Dress
Need to fake that latex look without having to deal with allergies? You can thank Yandy for delivering an allergen-free alternative! While off-the-shoulder tops are made for the basics, take this to the next level by rocking this minidress. Sinfully seductive, yet sweet, this dress never fails to leave a smile on your face. When you need to go out with your girls, wear this with a ton of layered gold necklaces, tousled hair and clingy ankle boots for that Brigitte Bardot/Hailey Baldwin hybrid lewk.
2. The Heavy Metal Hottie
The last time you saw a pair of red PVC boots was in your dad’s photo album, where he and his girlfriend were rocking out to Motley Crue back in the ’80s. While the Reagan era is over (thank god), these bad babies are au courant as heck! As the new party shoe, pair this with an oversized sweatshirt, denim cutoffs, baby bag and a sleek high pony. Seriously, you cannot thank Danielle Guizio enough for making red shoes great again.
3. The First Date-Friendly Skirt
Obviously, every other guide will tell you to keep your first date outfit low key. But here, we don’t BS as we know exactly what you want. This flirty little red skirt is lit as eff as the bow detail tempers the fabric’s fierceness. Thanks to its high shine and simple silhouette, you can pair that with a cropped slogan graphic tee to keep things PG.
4. The New Everyday Bag
Not in the mood to go back to school? Turn the hallway into your runway with this show-stopping bag. It’s simple, yet ridiculously extra. While you can rock this to class, it’s also a great alternative for clutches as you will need your hands to document your outfit selfies on a night out with your girls.
5. The “Not Your Sister’s Jacket” Jacket
All your life, you’ve probs envied your sister and her closet since your parents didn’t let you go out in anything too “cool.” While your sister’s in college with all of her clothes in her dorm, use your school’s no uniform Friday as the perfect excuse to treating yourself.
6. The Bedgy Jenny Hat
Gossip Girl may no longer on TV, but the memory of yung bedgy Jenny Humphrey lives on. Channel your inner aspiring rock ‘n roll fashion goddess with a biker jacket, skinny scarf, plaid miniskirt, fishnet tights and brogues. Show your eyes some “XOXO” with a heavy application of Urban Decay eyeliner. Dan Humphrey will be proud when you know you did your Little J tribute right.
7. The “Britney, Bitch!” Bodysuit
When Brit Brit asks you have a little piece of her, thou shalt pay your tribute to the OG Internet Mom. Albeit a bit more wearable than her infamous catsuit, channel the incredible Miss Britney Spears with matching red PVC pants, black chunky boots and a blonde wig. Just don’t forget to hit it one more time when it’s Halloween, babe!
