The PVC trend for spring 2013

PVC touches and clear fabrications are huge for spring 2013. It seems like only five years ago this trend was on the heel of every shoe on the runway; and on every handbag on the street! For spring 2013 the PVC or clear trend has not strayed too far from where it dazzled a few years ago; meaning, if you rocked this trend the last time around and kept your pieces, you are good to go this year! Love that!

The PVC or clear trend was subtle on the runways for spring 2013. A few designers showed a handful of PVC handbags and shoes during the four important fashion weeks in New York, London, Paris and Milan. Despite the fact that this trend came and went recently, store buyers locked onto it and stocked store shelves with PVC heels, handbags and even coats!

This is an easy trend to wear for spring 2013. PVC is clear in most cases and blends easily with the three big color trends of spring 2013; vivid pastels, neon hues and bright colors. PVC also has a “mod” vibe to it, making a PVC handbag and/or pair of shoes work perfectly with the current mod trend. Fabulous!

When shopping for PVC for spring 2013, look for clear accents. You do not want a handbag or pair of shoes which is 100% clear. Look for clear trim, heels and blocks. Although some designers and brands have tinted PVC with subtle colors, the ultimate way to rock this trend for spring 2013 is with clear, colorless PVC.
