It’s Clear Why Everyone Will Be Wearing Lucite in 2018

The see-through movement is real. In addition to sheer everything (peekaboo paneling, sheer socks), we’ve also been inundated with plastics and its more sophisticated cousin, Lucite. Yes, the transparent material has become a trademark of the runways the past couple of seasons, accenting shoes, jewelry and even bags.

Most designers favor the straightforward clear incarnation, but a few bold souls are championing more colorful interpretations like pink, orange, red and yellow.
