Trend Alert: I Can See Clearly Now

At first, I was skeptical. I thought Lucite was only used to make overpriced, ultra-modern furniture and tacky stripper shoes. I was wrong. Turns out Lucite, or acrylic glass, can be used to make all kinds of classy pieces, from shoes to clutches to jewelry.

Cinderella fantasists can stop searching the Internet for glass slippers. Lucite makes a fantastic, durable glass alternative, and, no, it doesn’t always have to come with 5-inch spike heels. Take, for example, these Giuseppe Zanotti black velvet jewel sandals ($357): the Lucite forms a sweet, faceted T-strap and adds a little glam to a classic black sandal. And Stuart Weitzman’s Lucite wedges ($298) do have a Lucite wedge heel, but they’re practical and the perfect solution for hard-to-match outfits that would look bogged down by clunky black shoes.

Jessica McClintock Marbled Lucite Clutchicon ($88) takes advantage of the strength of acrylic to offer pretty protection for your date-night valuables. Jewelry designer Erika Peña uses the tough-but-airy qualities of clear Lucite to celebrate her favorite qualities about her two homes: edgy New York and carefree Puerto Rico. Her starburst Juana earrings ($40) are a fun way of incorporating a material that’s clearly on the trendwatch list.
