I must wonder whether this is one of the most genius trends of the season for fashion lovers everywhere. After all, why would you want to hide your warmer weather wardrobe under jackets, or your new pedicure in classic pumps? It can only be seen as a waste. With such as stylish solution however, the possibilities this spring are endless.
Bomber jackets were the plastic picks at Charlotte Ronson. Their transparent natures take the normally punk inspired jackets into airy territory making them the perfect spring cover-up. They also have a hint of sports luxe about them, meaning more casual looks are also easily achieved.
Valentino made plastic romantic with this clear trench coat that seems to be the target of affection for many a fashion follower. It's an unexpected pairing that works as a breath of fresh air from the usual thick or silky fabrics used in such coats.

If there's any bag to have this season it's the perspex clutch. Stella McCartney used deep yellow, almost gold, tones to give and extravagant edge, whilst Gucci kept theirs sharply modern in completely clear plastic. Also note the lack of bright nail varnishes, keeping the look sleek.
The modernity of Givenchy's accessories this S/S is undeniable. Geometric shapes and metallic touches bring the shoes and neck cuffs even further into the future.
I think it's time to embrace the artificial, don't you?
