It’s noisy, has a shine that could rival a solar flare and is probably a bit risqué for some but if there’s one trend I’m LOVING this winter it’s vinyl. I had my eye on this vinyl coat for a while but wasn’t sure if it would suit or if the fabric would annoy me (it’s quite squeaky). But I decided to bite the bullet before Christmas and order it. So glad I did!

As far as I’m concerned, trench coats are perfect any time of year and can make even a basic jeans and tee combo look polished. I knew this slick navy coat would be a great addition and so far it has delivered on all it’s plastic promises. Plus I’ve noticed it getting a lot of admiring looks on the street (there’s something Matrix-esque about this coat that makes you smile).

My top tips for wearing vinyl…

  1. Start off with something easy, like shoes or a baker boy hat. If you can wear it as an accessory you can move on to the good stuff!
  2. Swap a regular piece in your wardrobe for something vinyl, like trousers. I got this pair of vinyl trousers in the sale last month. I’ve been so surprised at how easy they are to wear and style. They look amazing dressed up with a shirt and sandals, with a chunky knit and sock boots or with a tee, white kicks and teddy coat. So so versatile. Aside from my faux leather trousers they’re already one of the most hard working pieces in my wardrobe!
  3. Opposites attract so play up the textures. I love the contrast of these floral satin trousers against the vinyl coat and suede boots.
  4. If you don’t want your vinyl to stand out too much go for a subtle colour like black or navy. Wear with similar shades and tones or go for colour blocking.
