The Clear Transparent Mini skirt is described by the brand; PrettyLittleThing, as the skirt that ‘…will make all of your festival dreams come true.’
The go on to explain that the skirt features ‘a transparent material with pocket detailing and a button front,’ suggesting that you ‘team with the matching crop jacket for a look that will turn heads.’
They’re definitely not wrong about the turned heads.
However one savvy customer, Natasha, decided that she could probably fashion something similar using cling film.
The clear plastic version isn’t currently on the site, but the good news is that they are selling it in both hot pink and fluro green.
If you like the look of these skirts but think £25 is a bit much money, you could copy Natasha’s design skills, use clingfilm and then add colour using a highlighter.
Natasha, who said that there is a bit more of a meaning to her cling film skirt though, saying: ‘As a member of a society that is becoming increasingly aware of the impact of capitalism and fast fashion, I felt it was my duty to call out the hypocrisy of a skirt like that costing so much.
‘Also, who doesn’t want to spend their Friday afternoon being wrapped up in a roll of cling film for bants.’
We’re a bit worried about the sweat situation with a plastic skirt, as well as the environmental impact. But if you’ve the chutzpah to wear a clear plastic skirt – thigh condensation be damned – then honestly who are we to judge?
If you are keen to cover your body in plastic, you’ve got plenty of options. PrettyLittleThing is also selling an entirely see-through jacket and jeans(matching, so you be entirely plastic, fantastic) while ASOS is also trying to make cling film fashion a thing .
