Perfectly Perforated

Perforation is a very timely trend for spring/summer as it brings an overall lightness to heavy materials, which is important in the warmer months.  A perforated bag will be literally lighter, making it ideal for travel, and perforated shoes will allow your feet to breathe while giving you coverage, which is especially convenient if you haven’t had time to get a pedicure.  Plus, there’s almost always some type of athletic trend happening on the spring runways, and perforation falls into that category, mimicking the fabric of a sports jersey.

The bucket bag is a hot silhouette for spring, and the Takeout is a perforated take on this style. It can be worn cross body or over your shoulder and has the capacity to hold a lot yet keeps its shape regardless. Great for travel or toting around town, it fits an iPad, a pair of flats and more. While this type of bag goes with every outfit, I think it’s more of a day look.  I’d style it with a maxi dress and flats or cropped skinny pants and heels.

The single sole platform has really dominated, but Ceria gives you the comfort of a platform with a more subdued look. I love ankle strap shoes like this with a dress that’s either really short or over the knee – sticking to one of these lengths will help to elongate your leg when wearing this type of shoe.

Little slip ons like Abrye are super versatile. They’re perfect for toning down a sexy look such as a pair of super short shorts or a teeny tiny mini dress. I’d style them with a little flowy a-line mini dress. They’re also adorable with boyfriend jeans.

The silhouette of the Grace Fit and Flare dress is universally flattering, and the perforation kind of mimics English lace.  I’d mix it up and layer a white blouse underneath or belt it at the waist. I’d also keep the accessories simple as to not compete with the hemline detail. A peep toe bootie would toughen up the look, and a cocktail ring or statement pair of earrings would add some sparkle without detracting attention from the dress’s details down below.
