It’s official – there is now no such thing as privacy. With all the snapchat stories, food ‘grams, and live tweets, it seems everyone wants to share everything about themselves. Is it really surprising, then, that one of 2019’s biggest fashion trends is the see-through accessory? Everywhere, bags, shoes, jackets, and jewellery are showing up in clear PVC, rubber, glass, and revealing all that lies within.
Sure, it’s not the first time that the trend has surfaced (we do remember Valentino’s clear studded trench coat back in 2013), but doesn’t it seem like this “see-through chic” makes a particularly accurate commentary for 2019? Not only do we want to share everything, but revealing everything is actively encouraged. There can be no government secrets or undisclosed paid partnerships in 2019. Yes: transparency is the new black.
So, get with the times and make a *clear* fashion statement with some of this season’s most stylish transparent accessories. Featuring PVC biker jackets to see-through belts, we’ve rounded them up here for everyone to see. You know, because we’re transparent like that.

Part of Louboutin’s ‘Nudes Collection’, the Marie Jane bags really do bare it all (in 7 shades of nude).
Transparent resin adorned with a monogram in pearls and crystals – it’s clearly Chanel.
Nobody takes transparency more seriously than Stella McCartney. Using Non-PVC (because it turns out PVC is the most harmful to the environment out of all plastics), the brand celebrates the fashion trend with a chic and sustainable tote.
Transparent TPU meets fully disclosed branding, thanks to the double FF motif. It’s probably great for airports too.
This transparent and fluorescent yellow belt is the right way to buckle up for the see-through trend.
