Plastic fantastic

Excuse me ma’am, would you like a whip or paddle with those trousers?

This week, I’m lusting after PVC. Now, I know what you’re thinking:

‘Have you lost your mind?’

Well, no actually, I haven’t. Nor am I drunk.

Not just fetish party attire, PVC­ has become very popular of late. Fearne Cotton sported a pair of PVC trousers years ago but in the last year Alexa Chung, Gigi Hadid and Gisele Bündchen have all been snapped sashaying around in them.

Skintight and super squeaky, they’re certainly not for the faint-hearted. But they do make a statement. A big statement. They’re also surprisingly versatile. I’ll wear them with a band t-shirt and trainers in the day and with a knitted jumper and heels in the evening. And because they’ll enter the room before I do, I’ll probably let them do the talking.

My three faves:

Haridan Black Patent Stretch Vinyl Trousers, House of CB, £59

Moto Black Vinyl Jamie Jeans, Topshop, £55

Rivington High Waisted Denim Jegging in Vinyl Effect, ASOS, £30
