Bring the good times with a bag whose chicness is overwhelmingly clearTranslucent plastic and vinyl bags are a huge 2013 trend (and a perfect accessory for the occasion). Aside from being fun and fab, these lustrous pieces are also very practical. The hue makes sunscreen and towels easy to find with a material that is conveniently water resistant.

The second 2013 303 Magazine Pool Party is just a few weeks away! Get ready to finish out the summer with poolside drinks, bumpin’ music, and a chance for a last minute tan to last through the ski season. And of course, the 303 fashion desk is candidly here to make sure partygoers arrive in style. Round two … let’s get ready to rumble!

Solid-colored, midsize totes are a fashionable way to carry all the necessities. The boxy shape and capacity are able to hold towels, makeup bags, a change of clothes and whatever else you may need. Functionality meets fad with a favorite like the Lacoste Emma Transparent Medium Tote ($67.00, Lacoste.com). A solid color makes incorporating into your ensemble easy — so pair it with any suit of a complimentary color – pattered or not – and you’re ready to go!

Printed totes up the “fun factor” and make a statement.  The shape and capacity make it equally as functional but add a touch of flair that can really accentuate your lounge chair look. Be careful that your bag and bathing suit combo doesn’t clash (patterns, colors, etc.) Otherwise, there is more aesthetic to work into your look to put your best (bronzed) foot forward!  We love the striped Betsey Johnson ”Eye Spy” Tote ($60.99, Overstock.com).

Lastly, the see-through purse style bag is for the most committed fashionista. These purses are smaller in size and more distinctively shaped compared to the totes.  These handbags are limited to holding the regular purse items such as cell phones, wallets, etc. The Kate Spade “New York Summer House Robby” ($268.00, Couture.Zappos.com) is a fresh, elegant choice. The gold crisscross pattern is highly concealing while still working the trend.

Which one will you choose?
