One of the most unexpected trends has now become one of the most popular for the summer season. Plastic (yes the synthetic material that your tupperwear is made out of) is having a fashion moment, and we’re seeing it from the runway to retail stores. Of course, everything in moderation; wearing a clear, plastic dress is not as appropriate in everyday life as it is on the runway. The best way to wear this trend? Find accessories with plastic details to pair with your outfits! From bags to shoes to jewelry, plastic is more wearable than you could have imagined! Here are four plastic accessories that are a must-have this summer.
