We test out the bizarre plastic style trend to see whether it's a clear winner

THE clingfilm look is all the rage on the High Street – as see-through clothes prove a clear favourite.

Online retailer Pretty Little Thing has raised eyebrows with a range of transparent pieces, in sizes 2 to 26, guaranteed to show off every inch of your body.

Celebrities such as Lupita Nyong’o are in on the trend – but can these plastic fantastic items work in day-to-day life?

Clemmie Fieldsend asked model Olga Datsenko, 24, from Shoreditch, East London, to test some outfits and rate each of them out of five.

Olga says: “I do love the colours of this outfit – it feels fresh and summery. I like this overall look and would wear it out – it is definitely one of my favourites.”
