On the runways of Chanel Spring Summer 2018, Karl Lagerfeld made sure that one trend transcended — transparent boots. It’s clear that the plastic shoe is hot once again, with the likes of Kim Kardashian West, Irene Kim and Rihanna stepping out in see-through footwear this year

The problem, if you ask us, is not whether you’ll sweat in these pretty things but whether you’ll look trashy when you choose to rock out in plastic.

We got you on this one. Here are five different ways you’ll be totally chic in the plastic trend.

1. Sharpen it up with blazers

Blazers are like miracle workers. They can add smartness to a casual outfit instantly, and can add class to your outfit built around your plastic footwear.

2. Opt for midi-skirts

Wear plastic shoes with a tight dress, and you definitely risk looking like a working girl. Opt for a skirt that’s a midi or a maxi, which will make the whole look more sophisticated.

3. Try something sequinned

A plastic shoe is already a statement. So, outdo the shoe and really go for something outrageous on top. We’re thinking sequins — a great look for an event where you want to make a big splash.

4. Don’t forget your socks

We mentioned our unforgiving weather, and we admit it — there’s the tendency for moisture to build up within plastic footwear. Our suggestion: slip on some socks before putting on those transparent goodies.

5. Go opaque

If you want to hop onto this trend bandwagon, yet you hate showing off your toes because you have missed your pedicure session, there’s still a way — by going with a shoe that has opaque layers built into the design.
