In the age of social media, we've learned to be transparent about pretty much everything that we do — whether that means sharing a skin-care hack on Instagram Stories or posting ~some personal news~ on Twitter. Not only are people are getting more comfortable putting themselves out there online, but disclosing information can happen offline, too, and fashion lovers are proving to be no exception thanks to the recent clear accessory fad.
See-through bags are rising in popularity, so much so that it's hard to take a stroll down Soho without seeing several of them. The trend originated with Staud's Shirley PVC top-handle bag — beloved by the street style crowd during fashion month — and now a slew of brands are embracing the revealing material to create large totes, crossbody purses and belt bags that put it all out there.
If you're feeling bold and don't mind showing off some of your possessions to the world, now is the time to take this style for a test drive. In the gallery below, browse 19 of our favorite clear bags to shop right now.
