With the return of summer, it is the perfect time to amp up the lucite. As seen on the Spring 2012 runways on bags, shoes, jewelry, and even nails, it is back in full force. Its translucent to transparent quality gives it an open, airy feel which feels just right for summer. Lucite has come a long way from the 80's/90's "cheap stripper heels" and dollar store bracelets. Not only in clear, but it looks classy in color accessories as well. In addition to traditional lucite, soft sided transparent PVC is in the spotlight. One of the advantages of lucite is the ability to incorporate it into any outfit due to its clean look. It's just a matter of how dainty or bold of a statement that you are looking to make.
