Let’s roll it back to summer ’97 when Euro dance-pop group Aqua declared that life in plastic is – indeed – fantastic. Sure, the tune was a one-hit wonder but the mantra rings eternal and the proof is living in these badass vinyl trouser picks. Here come three fashion contenders, building a serious case for your first AW17 purchase (whatever your budget).

These high-waisted, patent babies will save you from drowning in an endless sea of denim this season. Cropped to graze the top of your ankle boots of choice (NB: more is more with PVC) and complete with a mega ring-pull zip, this super sleek style is calling out for you.
Ever felt an urge to completely cover your pins in high-shine vinyl? We’ve got a pair of trousers for that. They’re smooth, skinny-fit and collect serious kudos for the most Sandy-gone-bad style to ever exist. Bravo.
