Produced by emerging yet fashionable brands, including STAUD and Maison Boinet, the clear plastic bag is an essential this season. Whether it's complete with a stripy shoulder strap for a modern look, or a crocodile handle for a fancier feel, the plastic bag is incredibly versatile. It gives you the option of revealing some of the contents, such as a pretty fluorescent pouch or fun phone case for a playful look. Don’t forget to slip an opaque zipped pouch in with your everyday essentials to conceal them from prying eyes. This type of bag lends a touch of modernity to a formal Suit and an elegant charm to jeans and trainers.

For a bold look, accessorise denim shorts, long skirts and floaty dresses with a vinyl belt. With their futuristic feel, clear belts can be embellished with feminine details like gold buckles and contrasting trim in bright colours such as candy pink, as seen at Maison Boinet. If you like logos, there are plenty of brands offering styles that assert their visual identity this way.

Leather ankle boots with a plastic heel? Transparent mules? You decide how best to complete your look in the most fashionable way. Simple, effective and fairly easy to team with high waisted jeans and plainer blouses, clear or coloured strappy plastic sandals are an excellent seasonal alternative.
