Would you carry spring's trendy 'grocery' bags?

Yahoo Lifestyle

Last spring, it was all about net and mesh bags. But for this upcoming season, clear PVC “grocery”-style handbags are here to complete the trifecta of bag transparency.

With Chanel’s latest Spring/Summer ’18 see-through accessories that dropped in select boutiques, Céline’s transparent $590 take on a shopper bag, and Staud’s Shirley tote rapidly selling out, it’s no surprise that this trend has been a favorite for fashion-month showgoers.

Whether it was a classic shape reinvented with this modern material, styled and stacked within another clear bag (aka plastic bag-ception à la Man Repeller), or ones with perfectly curated insides, it showed that although it’s quite the unusual trend, it can be styled effortlessly. Just be sure to keep the crinkled receipts to a minimum.
