Trend Report: Crystal Clear

Previously, I had gone into the backstory of how I was lusting after a transparent bag and finally, when my search yielded no gains, I got down to making one. But the reason I was lusting after the transparent bag is because of one single thing - Because it was 'in'. Now, I know what you're going to say, 'Trends come and trends go as fast as you can change your socks' but when the clear accessories trend made waves this March on runways from Marc Jacobs to Dolce & Gabbana, I knew that I liked it more than just some passing phase.

And the crystal clear trend didn't just take shape in the form of sling bags but in jewelry, cuffs, shoes, sunglasses and clutches as well.

The beauty of the trend which got me so head over heels is the minimalistic chic look that PVC, lucite or perspex lends to a look. And the best part about it? Since it's transparent, it'll match just about any outfit!

When paired with an all-white outfit for your Sunday brunch or a red skater dress and black pumps for that party, I think clear accessories fit the bill to make you stand apart from the crowd.
I've even gone ahead and made my own DIY Transparent Sling Bag so if you're onboard with getting crystal clear, try it out!

Was really reluctant to try the transparent bag trend. Firstly I'm the most messiest person ever, and I wouldn't want to give anyone a crystal clear look into my bag!
Although I did manage to find a nice transparent tote with lace on the side, which proved to be a great alternative. I used it now during the rains!

Same here, Roxanne. Fortunately, my bag isn't too messy so it's pretty cool to show it off :D

Those clear brouges are so fun! I've got a clear purse, and it is a definite favorite of mine! I love that you made yours.
