It’s the absence of color that has taken the runway by storm this fashion season. The best footwear and handbag designers are using this crystal clear trend to project a mix of elegance and sophistication with stylish and innovative shapes and sizes. While slight hints of color are employed to make a shoe pop and handbags stand out, it is the lack of color that make these accessories a hit for spring. Not to mention, it offers a versatility that allows for easy pairings with almost anything in your closet.
This season shoes will have you floating in air, or at least look like it, according to top fashion houses like Givenchy. Footwear has long been a focus on the runway during fashion week, and this year was no exception. The runways were paved with a plethora of sky-high stilettos and eye popping pumps. But how exactly do you rock the crystal clear trend? That’s easy! Effortlessly shift from day to night with a sophisticated oxford, highlighting stylish cut outs and invisible side paneling, or take that little black dress to the next level sporting see through pumps with invisible straps from Michael Kors. Pair it with a clear tote from Fendi or translucent crystal-like clutch from Gucci.

These are delicately feminine, yet they are still capable of pulling an outfit together.
You may have noticed a bit more color in this late fall season. It's hard to believe that even those living within the metropolitan areas where black tends to be the uniform, have set their all black wardrobes aside. This year camel, a color tone lighter than brown, yet surprisingly sleeker than taupe has managed to hold on to many of us well beyond our summer attire. While other fashion bloggers claim that camel is the latest trend, sources can trace the understately chic color back to Spring of 2010.
