The Best Clear Bags For Concerts That Won’t Ruin Your Outfit

They pass the vibe (and security) check.

Live shows are back and ready to take over your summer plans, from music festivals to worldwide tours. With so many concerts on the horizon, some safety guidelines at your go-to venues may have changed. Clear bags for stadiums are often required, which means you need to switch up your accessories when it comes to outfit planning. Luckily, there are plenty of the best clear bags for concerts to choose from, and they come at a convenient, budget-friendly price.

As for what exactly you should be looking for when it comes to a clear bag for your next concert, most of them should not exceed 12 inches in length and width, while the depth should only be 6 inches or less. The purse itself must be completely see-through, which means hardware and decor shouldn’t conceal it at all — though, things like decorative trim, zippers, and other small details are allowed, as long as it’s not a massive logo covering up most of your items inside. (Ideally, it shouldn’t exceed 3 inches in width and 4.5 inches in height, and it should only appear on one side of the bag.)

And while most bags on the market lean towards simple designs, there’s a few fashion-forward alternatives that could still pass security’s clear-bag check. You can opt for a tinted color or even an eye-catching hologram look, so long as it’s transparent enough to easily see all of your belongings.

Ahead, we picked out the best stadium-approved clear bags for your next concert, with a variety of options to suit everyone’s style and budget — ringing in at under $20.
