Since its appearance on the Spring/Summer runways during fashion week, the clear trend – whether rendered in Lucite or PVC – has been showing up all over the place. While we were on board to begin with, we’re beginning to question our judgement.
Take Lucite heels, for example. They look so delightfully unexpected on the runways, but we’re afraid that if we’re seen walking home from a night out we might experience some unwanted solicitation. Even clear clutches make us a little nervous. Sure, they seem cool, but then again, you have to make sure that what you’re toting around is worthy of everyone seeing. And you know what that means: No tampons allowed.
That said, we’re not totally ready to write off this trend. In fact, we’ve rounded up 7 pieces that we’re comfortable wearing. Take a look at them in the slideshow and weigh in on this translucent craze in the comments section.
