Would you wear the transparent lucite clutch? Why yes, yes I would! Clear, transparent, lucite – I’m all about it. While I have developed a strong love for lucite home accessories – starting with the ghost chairs as a space saver and slowly growing a collection of clear candlesticks, lamps, perfume tray, and so forth – I was easily on board with the spring lucite accessories trend. Though reluctant to sport a pair of lucite heels, in the fear of getting unsolicited comments, I rather quickly warmed up to the idea of a clutch, however. (I think it is no surprise that I am a handbag hoarder!) Since it’s appearance on the Spring/Summer runways during fashion week, the clear trend (whether you like it or not) has been all over the place, causing a DIY blogger outbreak. The trend started with the infamous Charlotte Olympia Pandora Plexiglass clutch, and sparked a frenzy. Some of our favorite looks below:
Though I’d love nothing more than to spend $900-something on the Charlotte Olympia beauty, we’ve come up with some of our favorite ways to rock this look in a more affordable way (after all, we don’t know how long this lucite lust will last!)

CC Skye Sunset Boulevard Clutch: This smoky Lucite clutch feels both retro and futuristic. Gold hardware offers a touch of opulence and the slender shoulder strap is removable.
Alice + Olivia Lucite Box Clutch: If you want to combine all spring trends in one, we adore the signature black and white stripe on this box clutch. With geometric snap closure and slightly sheer look, it’s a seriously clear winner.
BCBGeneration Morgan Lucite Minaudiere: The simplicity, color options, (and killer price tag) of this clutch make it a favorite. Choose between bright rose, citron yellow, and cobalt
