The transparent bag trend has been making an unexpected return. However, the soft PVC material that we saw everywhere last year can sometimes teeter on the edge of looking cheap and remind us a little too much of the early 2000s.
The fashion world, of course, has a solution. Since last year, celebrities have been obsessed with these transparent handbags made from hard acrylic materials by Dubai brand L’Afshar.
What makes these bags so unique and stylish is the different textures on the acrylic material as well as the gold-plated hardware that gives the bags a touch of luxury.
They also come in a variety of colours and designs, some with removable chains so you can wear them cross-body.
The most notable celebrity who just can’t seem to get enough of these bags is Kylie Jenner. The youngest Kardashian-Jenner has been sporting the L’Afshar EVA bag on multiple occasions, looking chic and effortlessly stylish every time.
Other celebrities and trendsetters such as Bella Hadid and Bella Thorne have also been seen rocking various designs by L’Afshar, wearing theirs either as a handbag or shoulder bag.
How to style transparent clutches
Match your outfit with the contents of your bag
Since the bag is transparent, it takes on the colours of whatever is inside. To maintain an overall consistent colour palette, plan ahead what you want to wear and make sure the bag doesn’t contain items whose colours clash with your outfit.
Or go bold with patterns and colours
On the other hand, a transparent bag with minimal content doesn’t draw much attention to itself and is the perfect accessory to go with an outfit with a bold pattern or loud print.
Keep the contents minimalist and elegant
It should be clear (ha!) by now that this bag is not your typical everyday bag where you can shove everything inside. The transparent material provides no privacy whatsoever, so make sure to keep the contents neat and visually elegant.
