While clear accessories haven't always had the best reputation in the past (unflattering plastic ponchos and lucite heels are most prominently coming to mind), the new wave of clear jewelry and accessories is anything but cheap or tacky. Clear, which has been popping up in watches, necklaces, sunglasses, shoes, and more, is great because it's versatile -- it's not too fancy, but not too casual either, and the way it reflects the sun and sparkles without looking like full-on bling is pretty without overdoing it. More modern than white accessories yet a little more toned-down than bold brights, clear is a hot way to cool down as fall arrives! 

Beat the late-summer rays with a pair of clear-framed glasses from Hobo International, or swap your jeweled bib necklaces for more understated clear beads. Also, while jelly sandals may have been stylish for summer, go for a similar look that's more fall-friendly with these see-through ballerina flats from Michael Kors! Clockwise from top left: Hobo International Wendy Shufitz Clear Frame Sunglasses, Old Navy Clear Beaded Statement Necklace, KORS Michael Kors Opal Ballerina Flat, and AK Anne Klein Crystal Index Resin Watch.
