This Summer We’re Embracing Everything Eyelet

Certain things are naturally associated with summer. Like white dresses, cutoffs along with flip flops. But there’s one staple that has clearly lost its luster over the years. We’re talking about eyelet in all its forms.

Obviously, the fancy holes aren’t exactly fashion-forward. Thankfully, designers are giving eyelet a much-needed update. Anna Sui, MSGM, Staud and Self-Portrait are all playing peekaboo with perforations. So whether you want something subtle or extra ventilation, there’s plenty to go around.

Another positive development? It’s not just blouses. There are cool dresses and shorts to add to your summer wardrobe. Not to mention stylish skirts. This is one instance where doubling up is perfectly acceptable. But we encourage you to think outside the matching sets box. Try topping off Zara’s chill blue midi skirt with Pixie Market’s breezy cotton shirt. The contrast of patterns adds another dimension to any look. If you can’t afford the covet-worthy designer finds, there are lots of less expensive yet still totally fashionable eyelet items out there to choose from. Which makes mixing labels even more feasible.

So are you finally ready to embrace eyelet for summer? Great. Keep reading to discover the best pieces to score right now.
