With one of Spring/Summer’s hottest trends being sheer fabrics and bare-it-all designs, how could accessories not follow suit? Designers have been using Lucite, acrylic and plastic materials in a dramatic, yet playful way to adorn just about every part of you. From Fendi’s transparent clutch to Prada’s translucent wedge sandals and matching tote and Burberry’s chunky acrylic bangles, there’s nowhere to hide!
With many see-through items lining stores shelves today at Holt Renfrew and H&M, they shouldn’t be hard to spot. But by far my favourite item to indulge in this season is the ultra-affordable clear bracelet from Swarovski for $32. Covered in tiny crystals and available in four different candy colours (blue, white, pink and yellow), this is a fun option for everyday. As summer approaches, there’s never been a better time to show off a little extra skin.
