Style & Then Some

5 of the best: Vinyl skirts

The vinyl skirt has come a long way since the hooker-ish incarnations of the 1980’s. Currently enjoying a resurgence sparked by the latex pencil skirts in the last two Burberry Prorsum catwalk shows, vinyl skirts in the shops now range from cute and pretty to sleek and ladylike. Here are five of the best.

Burberry Prorsum AW13

1. Pretty in pink: In super shiny salmon pink, this A-line mini will look great with a short sleeved blouse in a contrasting pastel tucked in.

2. Goth girl: The skater style of this black patent skirt down plays the bothy vibes. Pair with a grey marl vintage tee and brogues, or ankle strap heels for after dark.

3. Midi mocha: Probably the closest cousin of the catwalk original, the Mircia skirt in mocha gives a near-naked illusion without actually being see-through like the Burberry ones.

4. Heavy metal: Go for a double-shot of shine with a metallic vinyl skirt. Keep the look minimal with a Bardot style off the shoulder black top and go easy on the accessories.

5. White out: maxi isn’t an option with vinyl skirts (only floaty fabrics need apply) but this ivory full skirt hits on that sweet spot just below the knee, making it the perfect companion for strappy summer heels and your crop top of choice.
