The catwalk always throws up some weird and wonderful trends. But the past couple of seasons have seen a recurring theme: see-through stuff. I'm not talking your regular black sheer T-shirt. I'm on about clear plastic designs that photograph as if you're wearing nothing at all. In a bid to figure out how this could translate to your everyday wardrobe, I wore transparent fashion for a few (admittedly very long) days.
While there are plenty of high-end and very expensive transparent outfits, I searched the sites of high street brands to find some cheaper alternatives. Surprisingly, there isn't that much on offer just yet. As I quickly came to realise, this may be because plastic clothing doesn't work too well in this hot and humid weather. It could also have something to do with the detrimental effect that plastic waste has on the environment.
One of the most viral see-through items of the past month or so has to be PrettyLittleThing's transparent trousers which of course I snapped up in a heartbeat to try out. There are also festival-ready accessories like plastic chokers and harnesses as well as see-through shoes popularised by none other than Kim Kardashian and clear bags galore.
I'll admit that I wasn't a fan of the trend before starting out on this little experiment and can safely say that my opinion hasn't changed one bit. Here's how I got on.
