Here's The Bag Trend You Didn't See Coming

Literally.

If you’re the kind of person who has wasted countless hours of their life rummaging blindly through their purse looking for that one, tiny tube of lip gloss, there is a solution to your woes. Enter: the transparent handbag. 

Admittedly, a net bag has just as much visibility, and won’t cause you to sweat as soon as it comes into contact with your body… but you’re far less likely to lose your loose change from a perspex shopper. Plus, they come in a huge variety of colors and styles meaning you can add an iridescent mini backpack to your collection for festival season, and a chic, taupe-trimmed tote for school or work. 

A see-through handbag is all the more reason to go out of your way to dress your phone in the most extravagant case you can find – and the encouragement you might need to clear out all those old receipts and mysterious pieces of matter that may have once been gum in a former life. What more could you want than a bag that allows you to show off all your thoughtfully accessorized belongings at once and bids you to be a better (read: cleaner) person? 

If you are concerned about leaving your valuables on display, there's a fix for that, too: insert a slightly smaller clutch or makeup case and clip it to the main zipper to act as a safe, while cute but inexpensive items such as your Tony Moly face mist and that highly intellectual novel you've been reading for the past eight months are left for all the world to see.
