Eyelet: A Laid Back and Ladylike Trend




Eyelet, be it in clothing or footwear has been a recurring Spring / Summer trend for a long time. Little wonder it’s all the rage yet again as the warmest months of the year start to creep up on us.

Today I’m showing a cotton eyelet dress that checks every box for ladylike in a Summer approved baby blue, one of the most sought after hues of the season. Now that I think of it, this dress is probably the only eyelet piece in my closet currently. 

 Oops, okay I’ll come clean, I do own another eyelet piece that I wore last summer here and a couple more that have not made their debut on FI. I can’t think straight, blame it on this gorgeous number!

I layered this dress over a crisp white shirt because I shoot very early in the day and the chill is usually real. I went for grey accessories because blue and grey not only look great together but are also very soothing and easy on the eye especially coming out of my ultra bright look from last week here, Ha! A pair of mirrored sunnies completed the look. 

As we enter the throes of the wedding season, a simple dress like this paired with a killer fascinator hat and heels makes a perfect wedding guest look. 

No wedding invites in your future? Then it's the perfect look for those days when you want to create a clean Spring look and nothing in your closet jumps out at you. I’m curious to see how you style this must have dress. 

Your thoughts on this look?

  7. Wow, that dress is amazing. I adore the colour and the cut. I couldn't tell that you wear a shirt underneath. I thought that the collar and cuffs are part of the dress. :)

  21. I have not one eyelet piece in my whole wardrobe, but I bet it must be amazing for summer. The thing I love the most though is the silhouette, very fifties and playful, but still grown up.
    Baby blue is not my color, but you look amazing.

  26. I love me a good eyelet anything. Though I've only really warmed to pieces in either black or white (though I prefer white because it feels more bohemian). I have to admit I'm really swooning over the pastel blue tone of your dress. I think I need to buy something in this colour now. It is so, so beautiful!

  40. Girrrrl! I was checking out this dress in white the other day and wondering if I could possibly let out that large hem to get the right dress length on my 5'11" frame. Tell me, is that hem at least 6 inches? Anyway, as always, you look great in everything. The white shirt is a nice touch. I love white in Summer. The adornment possibilities are endless............

  46. I literally said wow when I saw the first photo, girl, this dress is BEAUTIFUL and looks gorgeous on you! I love eyelet, but we often see it in white, so this is such a refreshing and new take on it that's perfect for both spring and summer. I love how you've layered with with the white shirt and waist belt, such chic additions. Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you're having a great week so far!
