1. Eyelet Oxfords

Oxfords are very on-trend right now, perfect for pairing with cuffed shorts or skinny jeans, and even feminine frocks. This pair in particular makes an interesting twist on the obvious menswear inspiration, with a comfortable cinched heel and clever eyelet cutouts across the almond-shaped toes. Be warned, sweetie, that these shoes run a little small… so order a half-size up.

2. Eyelet Lace-Ups

These comfy, highly cute tennis shoes are classics, ideal for wearing with anything in your closet, from a maxi dress to a romper and everything in between. The uppers are made of cotton eyelet, and they’re available in whole and half sizes from 6 to 10.

3. Stippled Slingbacks

These shoes are so gorgeous! I love the sling-back styling and the delicate eyelet cutouts on the uppers. The sling-back fastens with Velcro to ensure a perfect fit, and the platform heel measures a walk-able, comfortable 3¾ inches tall. They grey color is neutral without being boring… perfect for wearing with everything in your closet, black or white!

Available in dark grey or navy blue, this top creates loads of visual interest, sewn together from various eyelet patches with short sleeves and a pocket on the chest. What a pretty addition to your casual summer wardrobe!

6. Eyelet Wings Blouse

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Price: $198.00 at anthropologie.com
This light-weight cotton voile cropped top is ideal for wearing with wide-leg trousers and chunky wedges to the office. Its vintage-inspired styling and fluttery sleeves make it unique and pretty, and I adore the eyelet! Be careful of what you layer under this though, because of the cropped length.

7. Forget-Me-Not Bra

Price: $110.00 at anthropologie.com
Keep a little eyelet to yourself with this pretty bra. Half of it is a delicate floral print, trimmed with pure white eyelet, making you feel pretty all day, regardless of what you’re wearing over it. There are matching panties, too!

See, sweetie? It’s completely possible to wear eyelet on more than just a summer dress… I especially adore those slingbacks and oxfords! Which of these eyelet pieces do you like best, and what would you wear it with? Do tell!
