Here's How to Pull Off the Naked Handbag Trend

A clear handbag isn't necessarily the easiest accessory to pull off—it puts all your stuff on display rather than stashing it away from prying eyes, for one. If you're going to, say, an NFL or SEC game (where stadium regulations require clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC bags), well, that's kind of the point, but the style has legs well beyond football season. 

Several designers have rendered their signature handbag silhouettes in transparent materials recently, from Loewe's Puzzle bag to Chanel's iconic 2.55. They've been hits among the street style set, both for the striking bags themselves and for what's inside. Fashion people tend to choose what they tote strategically: cool cell phone cases, fun pouches, trendy sunglasses, and cosmetics with pretty packaging tend to be favorites, along with the invites to whatever shows they're hitting next.
