Today’s look sort of pulls it all together. I shopped my closet for pieces that would look good with this adorable eyelet hem top. To be honest, this is my kind of look.
This is the type of outfit I tend to reach for most at this time of year. Some comfy jeans with a cute top, sandals and a bag. And this cute little sweater top with the eyelet hem gives this basic outfit a little bit of flair.
Eyelet gives everything a feminine touch as you can see from this Pinterest Page “White Eyelet Dress.” But eyelet goes way beyond the dress.
The clothing looks include peasant blouses, maxi dresses, skirts, and sleeveless tops. While it looks amazing with denim (as in denim jacket, denim jeans, shorts or a skirt), you can also wear it with white trousers for an elegant look.
Eyelet also provides a feminine touch to lingerie and sleepwear. We all love that!
And of course, eyelet fabric is used in a number of household design items, such as curtains, bed skirts, bedspreads, and the list goes on.
Because it’s made of cotton, eyelet lace is especially popular in the summer. The holes made in the fabric are edged using a buttonhole stitch and sized and situated to create a pattern or patterns, often floral designs or abstract geometric arrangements. This variety is what makes eyelet lace so versatile. And so pretty.
The Eyelet Hem and Jeans Outfit
The woven eyelet hem on this top gives this classic short-sleeve sweater tee a touch of feminine.
I love the round neck and short sleeves: a basic sweater tee. You can see the side slits created by the eyelet on the hem–love that detail!
The color is pale blue and is slightly sheer but provides just enough coverage.
These platform sandals are getting their fair share of wear! I love the dark tan color that goes with everything and they are very comfortable. I also love that they give me some height–something I need for my shorter frame and long torso and short legs! Does anybody else have that issue? They are no longer available in the dark tan, but you can still pick up these platform sandals in light tan and four other colors. I’m also loving these Kensie suede sandals in a dark tan color.
Straw bags are all the rage this season, as is usual around this time of year. But new and different shapes, like this bucket bag with a cinched lining, are hot and trending. It’s fun to try a new style like this straw bucket bag. The best thing is, it’s on sale right now for $23.99. You can’t beat that for a cute bag, even if you only carry it for one season. If you like it, pick it up ASAP.
Are you a “jeans and tee” kind of gal like me? Then you’ll love this look! By adding just a touch of eyelet lace, the whole outfit takes on a bit of femininity, taking your casual outfit to another level.
Until next time, my friends…
