One of the most immediate trends to emerge from fashion month was anything and everything plastic. Whether it was see-through opac black made of PVC or vinyl, plastic interpretations were appearing everywhere during AW18. Think long practical raincoats at Burberry, moto futurism at Valentino or Chanel's chic 1960's see-through version including capes and boots. 

Even Yeeze caught in on the trend and presented thigh-high tubular boots. Most designers were looking at the trend ironically, attempting to elevate the plastic fabric which is associated with food preservation to a fashion trend. Kind of like 2010's obsession with trash bags. 

Street style was also heavily focused on plastic wear especially when it came to rain gear. Admittedly this trend is challenging to wear IRL even though the synthetic fabric has made its way into our mainstream attire starting from the collections of all our sartorial favourites.#000000"> 

It was Karl Lagerfeld who truly gave PVC an haute couture dimension not only by the artistry with which he crafted the clothes but also by styling them with modern Chanel tweed suits. They were word under feminine hooded rain capes in plastic, denim jackets and skirts were trimmed with plastic fringe while he created low-heeled boots in clear plastic as a luxury alternative to our common rain boot. Similarly, Demna Gvasalia and Acne Studios opted for sleek plastic raincoats. 

This season the trend dominated New York and London alike. Philipp Plein was most experimental by layering faux fur and metallic pieces while Jeremy Scott opted for Space age and taking cues from Barbarella in the 1960's.When it comes to styling, work the trend around your everyday essentials instead of adopting a head-to-toe look. 

Take influencer Yoyo Cao's example by layering a transparent overcoat over a classic camel trench, white tee and distressed denim. Try a plastic trench belted with a Gucci belt or simply invest in plastic accessories: From a see-through bag to a hat or boots, there's always a more nuanced way to incorporate plastic in your everyday attire. 

Browse through our gallery for more plastic-fantastic inspiration from fashion month and scroll below for our edit of the most eclectic plastic items you need to own!

This week Shopcade turns to influencer and author of the blog 'Ninety Percent Stardust' Rachel Reaney, for an instant fashion and beauty boost. Her blog chronicles her daily life, trends, travels and enviable skin beauty treatments. We caught up with the busy blogger, influencer and Communications professional to talk about creativity, morning routines and exotic destinations. 


What compelled you to start your own blog and Instagram account? 

I've always chosen photography and fashion as a medium to express myself and Instagram provides the perfect visual platform to do that. Multiple accounts on the platform have not only inspired me personally but have inspired me to start creating and sharing my own content and things that I love.  

What do you enjoy most about the creative process? 

For me, I really enjoy and find it relaxing to edit photos. I use VSCO to add the final touches to my photos such as adding a vintage grain or warmer tones using a filter. I use an app called Mosaico to plan the layout of my content. 

What are the challenges and also the benefits of being a freelance content creator and influencer? 

Luckily, I already work in social media so I feel the combination of working with brands as both a consultant and an influencer is very useful, as you can really understand both sides of the equation and how they can partner together in a collaborative way. 

What are your non-negotiables regarding your wellness routine? 

I'm a skincare junkie and for me feeling good about myself extends to how my skin is behaving. I try to eat lots of vegetables and drink as much water as I can but once a week I'll set aside some time to have some me-only pamper time. I'm currently a fan of beauty brands including Le Labo, The Ouai, Glossier, Nuxe and Rodin. 

How would you describe your personal style? Do you have any favourite brands? 

For me, I aspire to look low-key yet effortlessly put together. When it comes to my wardrobe I like to mix pieces from high-end designers on Yoox Netaporter such as Acne Studios, Staud and Nanuska with high street staples from Topshop, H&M or the occasional vintage find. 

Which are your staples when it comes to dressing up in the morning? It's important to me to be comfortable in whatever I put on. 

I tend to favour a good pair of jeans paired with a nude top or ruffled sleeved blouse. I'll then dress this up with gold jewellery and a statement bag. 

You're always travelling. Which one of your recent destinations was the most memorable to you and why? 

It sounds like a cliche but Oia in Santorini is one of the most beautiful and photogenic places I've ever been to. My next bucket-list destination is a hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia. 

What are you working on at the moment? Do you have any specific goals for 2018? 

Keep on improving! I've recently upgraded my camera and am excited to take my photos to the next level. On a personal note, my goal is also to enjoy the little moments and joys that life brings - most often or not these aren't planned!

Christy Teigen's Best Kept secret is coconut oil and she's not the only coconut connoisseur. You may have tried to employ coconut oil in the kitchen or even enjoy it as part of your bath shower routine. However, the healing and nourishing benefits of coconut have made it an all-around beauty favourite. Try it to moisturise your skin and remove your make up or add a few spoonfuls of coconut butter in a smoothie or dessert. There are many ways in which you can incorporate coconut into your daily routine. Now you can discover how you can make the most out of nature's purest ingredient to improve your wellness and nutrition. 

BODY OIL 

Apply the solid creamy textured coconut oil and get the perfect light moisturiser. Just slather a small portion on your body after leaving the shower and it will be enough to give you soft skin that glows. Add a few drops of peppermint or almond oil and get the royal spa treatment. 

HAIR MASK 

While in the shower apply a coconut oil mask and leave it for 15 minutes or longer if you have dry and damaged hair. For a more natural approach try melting your coconut oil by placing the jar under hot water. The mask will instantly moisture hour tired locks and give them extra shine and endurance. 

UNDER THE EYES 

Our skin under the eyes is quite thin and delicate which is why it's the first facial part that shows signs of ageing. It's also very prone to fine lines, puffiness and dark circles. If you want to avoid spending a hefty sum of money on a very costly cream then invest in coconut oil. After all, Emily Weiss founder of Glossier admitted that more expensive doesn't necessarily mean more effective. Attention: Coconut oil is comedogenic so be aware if you're suffering from acne. 

HEALTHY FAT 

Although coconut oil is perfect for those late night stir fries when it comes to nutrition go for coconut butter. It's thicker in texture which makes it perfect to spread on toast. You can also use it when making healthy smoothies or as topping for berries. Both coconut oil and coconut butter have both nutritional and metabolism-boosting properties that are amazing for your immune system and for your skin. They are though high in nutritional value, so don't overdo it. 

Are you ready to incorporate coconut oil into your everyday routine? Shop the best coconut oil infused products from our edit below and add points to your wellness.

We often find ourselves thinking what would Veronika Heilbrunner do? when it comes to styling boyish beige boots. The German fashion editor, co- founder of hey-woman.com and streetstyle star is renowned for wearing hers come snow, rain or shine and the subversive cool of her unexpected shoe of choice is very evident in her must-follow instagram feed. Chunky and lace-up, they look insanely comfortable- compared to the heels her colleagues are sporting- and add few inches to her modelesque frame. What we’ve learnt by scrolling through is that as casual as these boots may seem, they’ll work wonders with a sequin mini dress on the red carpet too: just like Heilbrunner wore them for the Fashion Awards 2017 back in December. She rarely teams them just with jeans, interestingly enough; and usually veers from pretty dresses to knockout trousers looks making these beige boots her signature touch.  


The best thing about Heilbrunner’s boot obsession is that she’s not picky about brands. Timberland’s cult Radford boots are one of her go-tos, banish any thoughts of JLo’s heeled pairs our of your mind, and won’t break the bank. If you’ll willing to spend a little more, Acne and Altuzarra are designer brands she’s stepped out in. Then wear them with everything in your wardrobe- the blonde’s even worn hers with black tights which we weren’t feeling until we saw it on her. 

Check out Heilbrunner’s best booted looks above and then shop our edit of the best boyish beige pairs available now.

The red carpet of the Golden Globes, more controversial than ever by the Time's Up movement gave a lot to talk. Beyond the black dresses, there was a theme that transcended: the acne outbreaks of Kendall Jenner. A tweeter user commented that the model looked beautiful even with her acne. To which Jenner replied, "never let that stop you".Credits: Pinterest

With only ten days away from the New Year it's time to say goodbye not only to 2017 but to all the fashion trends we loved and welcome 2018 with open arms. Last year saw the resurgence of many brands, the return of logomania, a bloom of mid-tier designer brands, sparkles, loungewear as daywear, vinyl, reds, and who can forget millennial pink? Now a little wiser we take a look at the trends you'll want to invest for next year! 


NEW TRENCHES 

Take cues from Loewe SS18 and invest in a trench coat that is a bit different than your classic version. It may feature cutouts, fringing or even alternative colouring to your regular camel hues. 

FRINGES ALL AROUND

Speaking of fringing, this is another trend borrowed from previous seasons that is still going strong for 2018. Get inspired by Acne Studios, Diane Von Furstenberg, Calvin Klein and Elie Saab. 

CHECK, PLEASE 

Yes, the check trend is not going anywhere soon, but like all things, it's growing and getting better. This year, add a few unexpected colours to your usual grey palette and don't hesitate to experiment with textures. 

WHITE OUT 

Probably influenced by menswear one of the biggest trends for next year will be the all-white-outfit. Think of Jennifer Lopez's outfit in the maid or a simple white blazer and trousers, as an alternative business attire. This is the perfect alternative to 2017's colour suiting. 

ANIMAL LOVE 

So 2017 saw a boom in animal print with leopard print taking centre stage and brushing off any previous trashy connotations. This year, the animal print expands from leopard print to include snakeskin, animal print patches and it's not only for your shoes and bags but also for trousers or jackets. Have a look at our gallery for more inspiration and shop your favourite styles from our exclusive edit below.

As of late there's a new addition to the already ever growing corduroy pants trend craze. The fabric that we ‘ve mostly associated with muted earthy tones such as chocolate brown, khaki green, off white and maybe midnight blue is now getting a bold makeover. (We could even say Barbie). Celine was the first to feature floor-skimming rose coloured cords for AW17. Then the high street quickly followed. Mango released a version of pink high-waisted cords as one of their key items for 2017. 


So it came as no surprise when influencers from coast to coast from Lisa Aiken to Camille Charriere and Irina Lakicevic were seen sporting them. And though we completely get the appeal of the $65 price point, Isabel Marant and Acne studios have also shown wonderfully poppy versions of the flared corduroy pants. 

Ready to add them to your wardrobe? Take your pick from our exclusive edit below!

You’ve probably seen the hype about charcoal beauty products on social media. Everyone is brushing their teeth with charcoal, using charcoal facemasks, charcoal scrubs… and much more! Well I’ve tried a charcoal facemask and I can say from first hand experience that it is actually amazing! Charcoal cleans pores and exfoliates your skin as it acts as an antioxidant on your skin. After using the mask, my skin was clear, my acne instantly was better and I had a natural glow. After trying charcoal mask, now it has become my routine. I use it 2 times each week to reduce acne and I use my highlighter less! #charcoal #beauty #facemask #trend

You have probably been hearing about the benefits of turmeric for a while now and you might have been intrigued to try a cup of turmeric latte, the bonified staple drink of the health conscious. Its recipe is quite simple, actually. Take a batch of cold-pressed turmeric juice and mix it with almond, cashew or coconut milk. Before you switch your morning tea or coffee brew to the golden milk (as it's also referred) we take a look at the benefits of turmeric. 


Youthful Clear Skin 


Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties that fight the skin's tendencies for redness and irritation while its anti-bacterial qualities make it perfect for protecting against acne and blemishes. 


Brain Power 


Turmeric produces curcumin which has a number of medicinal properties. It's known to protect against Alzheimer's disease by increasing memory function is also promotes the repair of brain cells. 


Muscle pain 


Curcumin also protect against muscle pain including joint pain and arthritis. So it's perfect for gym newbies. 


Anti-Infection 


Its anti-inflammatory properties make turmeric one of the perfect hot drinks when fighting a cold. Also due to its anti-parasitic qualities it can help prevent stomach ulcers and reduce infection in the gut. 


Fights Depression 


According to researchers, curcumin can aid in managing depression, without the possible side effects of  anti-depressive medicine. 


Reduces Cholesterol 


Turmeric has been found to reduce the levels of 'bad' cholesterol in the body, while increasing the levels of 'good' cholesterol. So maybe it's worth while switching to that gold milk for a while? What do you think? Send your comments below!
