Fashion is cyclical, and we’ve witnessed many ’90s trends make their way back into our closets through the seasons including chokers, combat boots, tiny sunglasses, belt bags—the list goes on. Just when you thought you’d seen it all, we’re met with the most surprising comeback of all: clear shoes. On spring runways from Chanel to Alexander Wang, see-through footwear (something we once proudly donned to the middle school dance) got a modern makeover.
Enter elevated renditions that are fashion-forward and grown-up but retain their playful, kitschy vibe. The best part? There are a variety of silhouettes to choose from, whether you’re looking for vampy stilettos with Perspex straps, mules with sculptural Lucite heels or colorful PVC sandals. Dress them down with a floaty blouse and denim, go all out and team with a plunging jumpsuit for night or wear with spring’s It pastel hues for a lighthearted moment. No matter which you choose, clear shoes are set to add a dose of fun to any outfit. Ahead, browse our top selects.
