As you probably know by now, transparent accessories are big for spring. If you prefer to stick to the classics, do you figure this is one trend that needs to pass you by?

Before you answer, check out this jewel-like evening bag. The furthest thing from those tragically plasticky totes that litter the mall, this Plexiglas stunner is embedded with octagons that obscure the outlines of what’s inside while still giving a feeling of lightness. (It comes in three colors—clear, pink, and “smoked”—the last of which is the best choice if you want to carry it year-round.)

And the shape couldn’t be simpler. Good thing, because this is one bag you’ll happily clutch long after the fashion slaves are on to the next trend.

$1,150 at, and at the Gucci store at 900 N. Michigan Ave.
