The Best of the Eyelet Trend

I’m back with a style edit post and the focus is on the eyelet trend. As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I generally like this trend however some items can look very tacky so I decided to have a look online to see what’s out there. This was also a good excuse to just sit down and look through hundreds of items just in case I find something that’s totally unrelated but nice.

As always, I didn’t have the time or the desire to check every single high street retailer’s website but I chose the main brands I usually shop with, such as Zara, Mango, Bershka, H&M, Stradivarius, etc. I would say Zara embraced the trend the best therefore about a half of the items I selected to include here are from them.

Just to mention, the item 2 which is a white lace up skirt from Mango does not have eyelets in it however I still wanted to include it as I thought that side detail was quite nice.

OOTD29: Grey Dress

Today is such a spring-like day here in London that I even bought a sunscreen. Putting it on unconsciously reminds me of being on holiday which is always a nice feeling. I’m not going on holiday just yet however the weather’s getting better and with it the fashion is changing to adapt.

I am always glad to see prints and colours everywhere however sometimes I just like keeping things simple. Today’s outfit is just a combination of black and grey.

The grey dress is a pretty basic item but the ruffles on the sleeves make it a little bit more interesting and sophisticated. I paired it with black patterned tights in houndstooth pattern which is more unusual than typical plain black tights. I kept the accessories simple with the silver theme running throughout by adding a silver necklace and another two silver look chain necklaces that I joined together and made a knot to use as a belt.
