When Staud, a Los Angeles-based but Insta-famous cult brand, released its Shirley bag in 2018, its 300+ person waitlist made it clear that PVC would be the newest bag trend. And, as fashion’s biggest houses have followed with their own iterations (see: Céline’s ‘Warning’ Plastic Bag, Chanel’s Coco Splash Flap, Prada’s Plex Shopper, and Louis Vuitton’s Keepall Bandouliere Prism), it has become crystal clear the trend will not fade anytime soon.

Want to get the ‘I’m totally transparent’ look? Carefully curate your essentials and throw everything in loose. Instead of that old drugstore chapstick, just be sure to grab your tube of Balm Dotcom. Or…maybe you still want to keep some things hidden? Insert a smaller statement bag to conceal your tangled headphones and fast food receipts. Not only will it give the illusion you are perfectly edited and organized, but also the opportunity to show off that vintage Takashi Murakami x Louis Vuitton cosmetic pouch you scored. Use your belongings to personalize your see-through shopper, and you will stand out – even with one of the popular, sell-out styles! After all, it is what is on the inside that really matters.

Scroll down to shop our plastic picks. They are all clear winners.
