Go plastic

Fashion designer Amit Aggarwal presented a line made with recycled plastic earlier this year. The designer says, "I used PVC-free plastic, which can be dry-cleaned or ironed easily. You can clean your garments by just wiping them with a wet cloth or tissue. A convenient way to follow this trend is to carry a clutch or any other accessory moulded from plastic. The material can be treated to look like anything, wood or metal too, and that kind of coating makes it adaptable. Avoid wearing a complete combination, say plastic trousers and jacket together, on humid days. It's great to wear during cooler times, like autumn to spring."
