With spring sneaking its way into our lives, the time is coming to pack away all those warm wool sweaters and drag out all our summer-esque garments. As skirts, tanks and sandals become our new day to day ensemble, our summers begin to consist of warm weather, no homework and smoothies by the pool. What’s not to be happy about? Most of us can’t help but sneak some cheerful, bright prints and fun new trends into our wardrobes.
This Fashionista’s rings in the summer season with this colorful, floral skirt paired with a simple tank and a button-up denim shirt to top it off. But the item that really caught my attention was this Fashionista’s seriously chic transparent shoulder bag. At first, these types of bags were only on point if you worked at Macy’s and were required to show the world the contents of your handbag. But this Fashionista brings a new definition to the clear bag. Purchased at Forever 21, she got this bag for under $30! With one of these bags, your wallet no longer has to take the back burner and hide inside your purse. This is the perfect chance to show off that awesome wallet you have hiding in your Michael Kors bag.
Purses aren’t the only transparent accessory that has made their debut just about everywhere from college campuses to the runways of MBFW to the bodies of bloggers across the country. Transparent sunglasses, bracelets and shoes have also made their way onto the bodies of a fashionable few. These bags scream perfection since they will match just about every outfit you have planned out. It’s crystal clear—this is a trend that you need to try out this summer!
Spotted: On the spring 2013 ready-to-wear catwalk, Valentino debuted some of the edgiest transparent bags that we’ve seen thus far! Also check out the see-through shoes and jewelry as seen on the Valentino runway.
