9 Clear Bags That Make Getting Through Security Easier Than Ever

Tired of having your cosmetics case rifled through in TSA? What about your purse when you go through concert security? Yeah, it’s not fun. Luckily, there’s a way around it — simply swap out your go-to opaque bag in favor of a trendy clear tote, crossbody, or fanny pack. If you don’t love having all your essentials on display (tampons, expensive iPhone, hello), opt for one that has a removable insert where you can easily store your "unmentionables" (though, you should totally be able to mention feminine hygiene products without worrying, just saying). If the bag you’re most drawn to doesn’t come with an insert, no worries! Use a small cosmetic bag or, my favorite, one of Glossier’s little pink pouches.

We know this trend isn't necessarily new, but think of the convenience people! Choose from one of the ten bags below (a girl needs some options) to get in on the trend — not to mention through security faster than ever.

Pst! Know what looks really great in a clear bag? Miniature amika hair products, like those found in the heavy hitters set ($40). Not only will they add a pop of color to your transparent accessory, but they’ll ensure your hair stays looking on point wherever, whenever. What’s better than that?
