Clear bags are having a moment again, and we are definitely not mad about it. This cool nod to the '90s is also practical as stadiums have introduced a new clear bag policy in an effort to up security. But stadium policies or not, we love them because they totally encourage us to clean out our old receipts and broken pens more often (plus, we get to show off our cute wallets and phone cases). Is there any true downside to this trend? Fashion brands certainly don't seem to think so because they have all jumped at the chance to capitalize on it in the most stylish of ways. From essential stadium bags to playful totes to glamorous clutches, click through our list of Top 10 clear handbags to help you find the perfect, transparent addition to your wardrobe.

Its so convenient because you can just dump your things there and be ready to go. I had mine for about 4 months and it still doesn't show a lot where and tear. [...]"
MICHAEL Michael Kors Whitney Large Clear and Leather Tote Bag
BEST FOR: The oversized design makes this tote perfect for carrying to work.
USERS SAID: "First of all, it's large. The design and leather details are sharp. The inside leather pouch has actually three compartments, allows for organizing your cell phone and other items. I've already used it and I felt like I got a great bargain."
Hoxis Turn Lock Cross Body Bag
FUN FACT: This bag features a removable shoulder strap, providing you with two stylish ways to carry your belongings.
USERS SAID: "This bag was inexpensive and is very high quality. It was large enough for me to carry anything I needed during the game as well as items for my three friends. The cross body strap is very secure and the bag is made well. I liked the clasp over other bags with snap closure because I could pack it full and it still sealed securely."
Lam Gallery Clear Turn Lock Purse
LOVED FOR: The Chanel-esque silhouette and style
USERS SAID: "Can't get much better than this. It closes securely and looks refined. Before I purchased this one, I had ordered and returned about six different clear purses, many were poorly made, most are too big, some were too stiff to be functional, another was too fancy looking for a basketball game. This one is perfect. It will hold my glasses case, phone, and keys, and it has an external pocket for the tickets."
