How to shop the transparent heels trend for the office at every budget

From those iconic Dior boots to local Charles & Keith versions, the see-through, plastic fantastic, lucite heel trend has shaken off its ‘girl of the night’ connotations and is fresher than ever! Shop it while it's hot from the designer to high street interpretations
 

Gone are the days when lucite and PVC were associated only with, let’s be honest, pure tack! The moment Raf Simons for Dior sent his model army strutting down the runway wearing light-filtering lucite heel boots in the middle of the Louvre for Autumn Winter 2015, our eyes were opened. Many designers have tried before to make plastic fantastic covetable and many have failed. With signature Simons flair, a new trend was born, and we’re still obsessed! Other designers have got on board too, and high street versions are available for every budget. From high heeled booties to low heeled sandals, see-through has never been so in, or so chic. Now more than office-appropriate, perspex perfection is everywhere! We bring you the 7 chicest versions to shop now:
