1) Laser Cut Leather Skirt
A great way to wear leather in summer, pair your eyelet leather skirt with a jumper for a casual look. Else, flaunt your midriff in an elegant crop top for a dressier look. Keep your top texture-free and let your leathers grab all the attention.
2) The Eyelet Dresses
If you’re feeling bold, opt for a see-through eyelet dress paired with an edgy bag and shoes. Or get a boho look in a belted white eyelet dress (buy here). Accessorise with a forehead band to add to your Coachella style.
3) The Eyelet Blouses
When heading to the beach or going street shopping, we’d suggest wearing a light eyelet blouse (buy here) to keep you cool. Pair it with hot shorts or pants and don’t forget to carry a big bag that can contain all your summer essentials.
4) The Eyelet Shoes And Bag
