Now it’s cool to see what’s in your bag!
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, there’s nothing wrong with experimenting with trends every season. Not all trends will be everyone’s cup of tea but admittedly I’ve been sucked into the ‘see-through bag’ trend. The return of vinyl hit the fashion scene in a big way a few season’s back, with lots of PVC and wet-look clothing, accessories and footwear. But this season the vinyl see-through bag has become the “must-have” item of fashion lovers worldwide. I’m not even remotely ashamed to say that I love this trend, everything has been a trend at some point even ‘classics’ are a trend, but what I love most about this one in particular is that it’s FUN! It takes me back to the days when I was younger and my grandparents would take me out to Woolworths (throwback!) to buy me a handbag or a make up set (always made of plastic and never contained any real make-up). I used to call it my ‘bag-of-business’, I had it with me wherever I went, and it was completely see through…so everyone could see exactly what my ‘business’ was. I guess this trend holds some nostalgia for me but I also think that it is a bit of fun to play around with and who can complain about a waterproof, stain proof bag right?
