In its April issue, Harper's Bazaar featured a luxe spread of Cindy Crawford in lucite jewelry. She looked so sophisticated that I became convinced I had to sport some lucite bling or be forever relegated to frumpsville.

Meanwhile, socialite Olivia Palermo's lucite necklace attracts attention without weighing her down.

Here's why you should consider wearing lucite, too. Lucite bangles, rings, and necklaces are extremely hot among couture designers right now and therefore extremely pricey. (Prada, for example, is featuring an edgy lucite heel on some of its pumps.) However, there are a few knockoffs to be found- knockoffs that look exactly like their far-more-expensive counterparts. Here are a few examples...

 

 

This $18 lucite bangle from Lori's Shoes is almost an exact copy of an Alexis Bittar version going for $495 at Bergdorf's.

 

 

 

These striking Stuart Weitzman slingbacks, on sale for $69.99 (down from $179!) bear more than a passing resemblance to their $500 Prada counterparts.

 

 

This fashion-forward statment necklace, featuring lucite hexagons, is just $34 at Newport News.

 

 

 

This minimalist lucite neckace, $68 from Anthropologie, is a much cheaper alternative to its $295 Ben-Amun counterpart.

 

 

 

And frankly, I'm liking this $28 lucite necklace from Nordstrom, too.

 

Lucite. It's not just for strippers anymore.
