With summer right around the corner, it’s time to pull out the summer style staple — eyelet. The feminine eyelet pattern lends an almost ethereal feel, but has potential to really command the room. And now that we’re almost ready to venture out into the post-COVID world, it’s finally time to start dressing up again!
I love my loungewear as much as the next girl, but I’m really looking forward to wearing my cute clothes again.
Eyelet tops can be styled in a number of ways, but my absolute favorite is with a fitted pair of denim. The contrast is classic, effortless, and clean. It can dress up denim and it’s a great alternative to a classic tee.
You’ll find so many variations of eyelet tops with puff sleeves, lace, cinched waist, or flowey. If you want to really stand out, look for tops with scalloped necklines or hems. I love pairing eyelet with sweet ruffles as well — so fun.

If you fear that wearing an eyelet top may have you looking like your grandmas doily — try juxtaposing with a more masculine material. Again, while denim is my favorite to pair with eyelet, you could add major distress to your favorite jeans.
Another style love right now is faux-leather. Try a faux-leather skirt, faux-leather jacket, or even paper-bag shorts if you feel comfortable combining trends. The most important accessory is your confidence — so rock it like no other!
