Must-have Autumn/Winter 2017: vinyl

Style at 50 Not Only Twenty

Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini

It’s not just a pretty aggressive and sensual woman that is represented by vinyl clothing, a real  must-have of winter 2017, but it is also a determined and ironic woman.

Raincoats, jackets, dresses, trousers, skirts: everything is possible with vinyl. What to choose?

I have to confess that when I was offered a vinyl raincoat with a tight belt a bit ‘70s style I was pretty puzzled, then after a few days I fell in love.

How to choose the vinyl cap

Jackets and raincoats are easy to wear for any type of body, with tight belts or no belts. The length and consistency of the fabric help us to choose the piece that is most suiting on us. This type of outerwear gives strength and character even if worn on jeans.

The rule to observe strictly is that if you wear a vinyl piece it must be only one, it is absolutely forbidden to wear more.

Skirts are more difficult to wear because usually the one that is proposed is the miniskirt. If we want a vinyl skirt it would be better to choose a long pencil skirt  and maybe with a slit or a wide skirt, these models fit better to the physical of us women over 50.

Pants, usually  with high waist, are very beautiful and easy to wear, the only perplexity is the texture of the fabric, which could be uncomfortable when moving or sitting. The choice, if you want to buy pants, should especially aim at the lightness and ductility of the fabric.

Finally, dresses that are very difficult because they require a slim body and almost androgynous, beautiful but very risky. It is easy to look trashy or seem wrapped in the food film. I would like to leave vinyl dresses to the freshness of the young people and choose a beautiful coat that shows all the energy and strength we have inside.
