WE wore them when we were young tots and they are now back, looking even better than before. I still remember how my sisters and I loved wearing our sandals to the beach years ago, having been raised in a coastal town. These shoes were so easy for us – we played with them in the rain, we literary swam in them and played all kind of games.
I am talking about plastic accessories! From shoes to bags, plastic accessories are back with a big bang on the fashion front and everyone is dying to get something for themselves.
The first fashion giant to come up with the plastic shoes over 30 years ago was a company in Brazil called Melissa Shoes. Melissa plastic shoes have been leading the way in contemporary style and have been a must-have footwear fashion. Other fashion giants and top labels from all over the world have been in the recent past influenced and inspired by Melissa plastic shoes. They are now creating their own plastic footwear designs.
One lucky day, I bought one pair of Melissa plastic shoes by chance when I had gone shopping in a secondhand market a few months ago. The classic black Cacao T-Bar flats are so stylish and have an insole, adding great comfort to the wearer.
Celebrities like Rihanna, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Katy Perry, Ann Hathaway and Michelle Obama have all been spotted wearing their plastic shoes with so much comfort and style. Marc Jacobs plastic or transparent bags are also making waves in the bag industry. The transparent plastic bags by Marcs have the design of simple rules, fashion critics say they are naïve and cute.
Even though some ladies think wearing plastic shoes is cheap, I am one of the proud ones who wear plastic shoes with style and oomph – for they work out so well for me and many others. The good thing with these shoes is that they can be found in all design and colours. In fact, I have never seen any accessory that spoils for choice like the plastic shoes and the bags. You can get them in all the colours and match your entire wardrobe.
Plastic shoes and bags are inexpensive and easy to maintain. You can wear plastic shoes when it is sunny or rainy. To the beach or to the market, they are so comfortable even for long walks.These are so ideal over the weekend or any other day that you are in a relaxing mood.
The shoes especially, are recognizable and covetable addition to any girl’s shoe collection. A must-have in footwear fashion, they are comfortable, stylish, express individuality and are an eco-friendly choice.
By wearing your plastic shoes this season, you are part of the leading and most cutting edge trends in fashion footwear anywhere in the world!
