We’ve got ourselves a new summer bag trend! Besides the summer market bag, circle straw-version, from last year there is a brand new one. Did you already spot it? If not, you can gaze for the rest of the afternoon at these beauties, because they are pretty, practical and oh so DIY-able. I started already a new post to make one yourself but that is something for next week! Today I’ve gathered some inspiration about the Transparent Summer Bag!
Clear, Transparent or PVC
These bags are not really new new. Over the years they have been shown on the runway but what makes a trend a trend? Maybe some influencers thought it is time for a practical and a little crazy bag. You might ask yourself but what are they made of…? There are examples of hard transparent acrylic but I think most of them are made of clear, transparent PVC. You can choose between different thicknesses which have their own characteristics.
Nothing to hide…
One of the funny things about this bag is ofcourse that everyone can see what you are carrying. Most of them also come with an extra bag for inside the transparent summer bag. But if you don’t use that extra bag, well ladies… you can’t use your bag anymore as a place to dump all your receipts, trash and more junk… You could ofcourse see it as a little less practical bag but as another fashion statement and match even your carry-along-belongings to your current day outfit ;)!
Practical or not?
But these bags could be extremely practical! Because they are made of some sort of plastic you can take it everywhere you want, to the beach, in the rain, to a construction site. If it ever get’s dirty you can just wash it all off, clean it inside out and reuse it. Besides, this bag if probably more waterproof than your regular bags! I like the idea!
Combined with leather
To give it a more luxurious and less cheap look I love the ones combined with leather… (of course I do ;)). Today already a little sneak peek of next weeks DIY post. I can assure you… if you didn’t start making the DIYs from this blog because you are too afraid to start to work with leather, because you think leather is too expensive or because you just think you don’t have time for crafting… you will make some time, money and find some courage for this transparent summer bag!
