Lucite is big this season. Whether it’s incorporated into a pair of heels, flats or jewelry – it’s sure to make a statement. Prada’s collection demonstrates just how versatile the material can be in an outfit. Lucite sandals with a structured heel, for example are chic and modern for spring, and even office-appropriate as the weather warms. In contrast, the material can also be added to an outfit by way of an over-sized necklace or some bangles. One of the greatest benefits of lucite accessories? No need to worry about color clashing!
Tips for Making it Work:
- Find the balance between quirky and tacky. Granted, it may seem silly to worry about piling on clear jewelry, but it’s very possible to go overboard. Too much clear jewelry, for example, can easily start to look cheap. The trick is to just rely on one focal piece, be it a large necklace or a stack of bangles – that’s really all you need to make an outfit!
- Not all lucite is created equal. Pay attention to the details..of the details. Is that necklace accented with a gold chain? Ribbons and pearls? The materials and style surrounding the lucite create the vibe of the piece
