Spring Trend: Transparent

lucite accessories

One of spring’s hottest trends are transparent accessories. Often referred to as lucite or clear, this trend works best in small doses (a transparent dress- not so much). Look for clear straps or sides on heels and flats- this will show a bit more skin and flatter the shape of your feet. Transparent clutches and totes are a great way to show off your favorite beauty products, sunglasses and that neat iPhone case. Another easy way to incorporate this trend is with jewelry- whether it’s a simple, clear bangle or a lucite necklace with fun jewels, the piece will make a statement and match any outfit. Here are a few of my favorite pieces. Will you be wearing this trend for spring?

  1. I think that umbrella is super cute – but I really don’t need people seeing what is in my bag 😉

  2. I love the umbrella. I’m pretty sure I had a clear umbrella when I was little. As for clear shoes and purses, I don’t think so. Especially the purse. I don’t want anyone to really see whats in there.

  3. The umbrella is cute, but I’m not a huge fan of this trend. I do have a clear makeup bag though so I can find everything easily!

  4. I love the umbrella and the sunnies, they are super cute. I like the idea of the clutches/bags, but when I think about it, do I really want people to see all the randomness I carry around, haha?!

  5. I don’t think I could really ever get on board with a completely clear purse just because it would make me paranoid and because of the whole mess-factor. I do like lucite jewelry though. I’d love to pick up a bangle or some lucite earrings.

  6. I dont know if I can pull off this trend, but I would love to try with the sunnies or umbrella (which are both fabulous)!! Great finds!

  7. I’m a bit hesitant with this trend. I like some of it, like the flats and the umbrella, but some of it I am not wild about. We will see if this trend makes its way into my closet 🙂

  8. I’m a bit iffy with the clear trend. It kind of looks cheap to me. But I do love those clear ghost chairs and I would definitely love using that umbrella.

  9. This is such a fun trend! I’ve always wanted one of those clear umbrellas! Have a great weekend Rachel!

  10. I’m not really a fan of the transparent trend. I like the umbrella but thats about it. It reminds me of 2 things: 1. clear backpacks and 2. stripper heels! HAHA…sorry, I’m awful!

  11. I’m just not a fan! I’m OK with the glasses, the umbrella and the cuff bracelet, but definitely not the shoes. They remind me of shoes I wore to a dance in 7th grace (that lit up!!) Yes, I’m admitting to that. Ugh. Horrible. Fun post though! P.S. I actually am kind of OK with the flats too, those are much better than clear heels!

  12. I agree with AJ! This trend just makes me think of stripper heels! Plus, I don’t want everyone to see all the gum wrappers/lip glosses/crap that I keep in my purse=)

  13. Love everything about this except for the bags… I have trouble getting on board with the bag thing because I don’t like the idea of showing people what you’re carrying… Just seems like a robbery waiting to happen (but maybe I’m just paranoid!)

    The umbrellas and the heels are my favorites 🙂

  14. Great picks for this trend! I’m still a little iffy about wearing this myself. I feel like the clear shoes were tacky just a few years ago, but I love the umbrella and sunnies. Have a great weekend Rach!

  15. I don’t know how I feel about this trend yet. I mean, my purse is never clean enough inside to be sporting a clear one! But we will see, maybe I’ll find something I love 🙂
