A huge trend we are going to be seeing hit stores this spring/summer is lucite accents. The best way to incorporate this trend in everyday outfits is through accessories. Rocking a full vinyl skirt or jacket might be a little too over the top for most people so try jewelry, purses or shoes first!

Clear bracelets detailed with gemstones are a great way to modernize a sleek ensemble. Same with clear cuffs and chunky rings. The bracelets above are also mixed with antique gold metals, tying in the Art Deco trend that is popular.

Lucite footwear is another way to wear this fun fad. Clear details like the ankle straps, embellishments or heels can really update and transform your look. The heels above from Forever 21 feature black pleather ankle straps along with a clear plastic foot strap, accompanied by the chunky lucite heel. The black pleather keeps the overall shoe balanced. Too much lucite will send the wrong message and could be mistaken for a different kind of footwear, if you know what I mean!

As long as you keep it basic and sleek, you can’t go wrong with clear accessories. A little goes a long way and with this trend it’s safe to say less is more!
