Spring Trend: Transparent
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?
Longchamp clear umbrella / Clear round sunglasses / Clear panel pointy-toe skimmer / Clear cuff bracelet / Jeffrey Campbell soiree clear heels / Lacoste Emma transparent medium tote / Mango crystal embellished transparent necklace
I love the umbrella, too cute!
Not a huge fan of this trend but I do have a clear umbrella. Mine is from target of course.
I want one! I’ll have to make the 45-minute trip sometime 🙂
Love the transparent heels!! I remember growing un in India, during Monsoon season, lucite/plastic/rubber transparent shoes everywhere..No fear of water damage:-)
I think that umbrella is super cute – but I really don’t need people seeing what is in my bag 😉
Loving these! Happy Weekend!
I love the clear umbrella! I’m not sure about the clear purse thing, I feel like people would see my cash in there and try to steal it.
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.
I’m not sure I like this trend, but the umbrella is super cute!!
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!
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?!
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.
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!
The clear clutch/purse would make me super nervous, but I’ve always wanted one of those umbrellas!
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 🙂
I think I REALLY want a lucite clutch!
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.
I really like the cuff!! I’m not 100% sold on this trend yet.
Ooooh! I really want that umbrella! So cute. I am really digging this transparent trend for spring.
This is such a fun trend! I’ve always wanted one of those clear umbrellas! Have a great weekend Rachel!
I love this trend!! The umbrella is cute!!! 🙂
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!
hahaha no I totally get the stripper heel part!
What a unique trend…it brings me back to when clear jelly shoes were in! 🙂
Those were the days!
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!
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=)
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 🙂
I love this trend! I need a transparent bag and possibly shoes as well.
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!
Love this trend. The clutches are so cute, and I love the clear umbrella.
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 🙂
I love that lucite umbrella, so pretty! I love your picks!
I love that umbrella!
