It’s all about plastic for 2018. We’re talking plastic clothing, of course.

On the runway, we’ve seen a variety of takes on this controversial trend. From sheer to shiny, the look has taken off.

If you’re brave enough, try this trend full-on with a plastic jumpsuit or cape. Alternatively, dip your toe in the PVC with a pair of boots or vinyl bag.

We predict that this trend won’t stick around for too long, but it’s a look that is fun and easy to pull off right away. One thing’s for sure: our editors in rainy Vancouver are taking full advantage. When water-proof practicality and high fashion collide, that’s a a big win for us.

Take a look at these looks from the runway.
