Crystal Clear Concepts
You may have not thought that solid, transparent, acrylics would be materials you would ever see incorporated into the latest fashion trends, but the world of fashion is making one thing clear: see-through is now the way to go! Versace showcased its new collection of Lucite wedges and platform heels during the brand’s recent runway shows displaying how fashion-forward the look can truly be.
It is understandable that these towering transparent platforms may seem intimidating at first–but don’t be afraid! There are more demure, yet equally stylish options. Earlier this year Jeffrey Campbell collaborated with Pixie Market, to create these floral sandals with a Lucite heel.
This trend is coming through in the accessory department too! Not only are more handbags and clutches featuring a lucite handle accent, but the actual bodies of some bags are turning see-through as well. Transparent sunglasses, rings, bangles, and neck pieces are also popping up everywhere in different colors!
If you are wondering how to work all this translucence in with your outfits, pair with pastels or neons for an instant touch of futuristic glam. The trick is to keep the silhouette of your entire outfit sleek and simple to perfectly compliment the crystal clear accessories.
