Rainy Day Essential


Don’t let a little drizzle fizzle out your outfit plans. This Hunter raincoat, inspired by recent runway shows by Burberry and Miu Miu, is the only thing you need on a rainy morning. With a waterproof design and a flattering silhouette—complete with a draw cord that flatters any figure—this translucent raincoat by Hunter lets you show off your style while keeping bone-dry.

A Touch of Neon


Electric green trim and moto details, including zippered sleeves and a belted waist, make this transparent jacket an instant statement piece for your closet. Next girls’ night out, layer over a lacey bralette or bodysuit for a little more coverage, and slip into high-waisted jeans and chunky heels to complete this biker-chic look.

Vinyl Child


We are obsessed with this vinyl mini skirt from Forever 21. What’s not to love about the zipper detail, flattering cut, and wallet-friendly price tag? For only $20, you can dare to be brave and flaunt this revealing mini (and your tight and toned booty) for a night out on the town. Pair over your fave bodysuit if you’re feeling bold or with opaque tights for a more conservative ensemble. Either way, you’re sure to shine!

Embroidered Dream


Talk about trendy! These jelly booties combine three of this season’s top trends into one gorgeous pair of shoes with colorful embroidered florals, blush accents, and a crystal-clear construction. The ankle-length, chunky heel, and feminine details give these boots a Gucci-esque vibe, despite the fact that they’re under $150. We couldn’t dream of anything better.

See-Through Stiletto


For a more clear take on take on the transparent trend, try wearing see-through stilettos that feature sexy peep-toe and heel cutouts. You don’t have to worry about wiggling into these rubber boots; a zip-front design makes these heels a breeze to slip into between outfits. If you’re feeling a bit daring, take a tip from Kendall Jenner’s off-duty style and opt for fishnets over traditional socks.

Clear Thing


Looking for a way to dress up a basic t-shirt and jeans combo? We’ve got an easy fix for that. These transparent hoops are an unexpected addition to any outfit with sparkling gem embellishments that catch the light with every turn. A little bit of sparkle is always a sure-fire way to elevate a casual outfit with ease. Bonus tip: made with lightweight resin, these statement earrings won’t weigh you down like heavy, metal hoops.

School Girl Cool


Get on the mini bag bandwagon. This transparent mini backpack offers the ultimate cool-girl style in the cutest compact package. With two separate compartments, you can keep your phone, wallet, and keys in the outer pocket for easy access and all your other odds and ends in the main compartment for safe keeping. Whether tailgating or out shopping, you won’t be left rummaging through a dark bag, searching for your fave lipgloss.

Stadium Style


For all you avid football (or rather tailgating) fans, this clear crossbody from Francesca’s was made for you. While clearly cuter than a plastic ziplock bag, gold hardware and saddle bag styling make this purse more than just a game day essential, but a go-to accessory. And even better—it comes with a mini quilted wallet so you can keep your cash and cards concealed throughout the festivities.

Geeky Chic


Who says you need a prescription to rock the glasses look? Chunky translucent frames have been around for decades, but have made their way into the fashion spotlight following the clear sunglasses trend of the summer. With minimalist charm, these spectacles add a hint of geeky chic without hiding your pretty face.

Clear Coverage


If you’re not totally sold on the transparent trend, start small. This clear bubble umbrella lets your style shine, even on rainy days. Through wind and rain, you can protect your carefully crafted outfit with a full-coverage canopy. You no longer have to worry about walking into people on your way to work either with this totally see-through solution.
