ALL IN THE DETAILS: Eyelet Envy

Summer has finally arrived, and along with it came weddings, birthdays and backyard barbeques. Finding the right outfit to wear to these events can be challenging, but one fashion trend that never disappoints is the classic eyelet dress. An eyelet dress fits in every category. Whether you want to achieve formality in your frock or take on a sporty spin, an eyelet dress can be the most reliable item in your wardrobe.

This Fashionista managed to hit the nail on the head in her Michael Kors eyelet dress. Unfortunately, the brand no longer carries this specific dress, but there is a long list of designers who create a similar silhouette. By pairing it with patent leather sneakers, this Fashionista turned the dainty white dress into a comfy, casual ensemble. Her neutral colored chain messenger bag plays up the edginess of the black sneakers and contrasts with the delicate details in the dress. To bring back the girly touches, a simple single charm bracelet and ring make this the perfect look to wear to graduation parties and summer celebrations scheduled for the season. Throw on a pair of wedges and suddenly the outfit can be worn to formal events as well.

How To: Start with the shoes. Decide how lavish your event is and choose whether you should wear sneakers, heels or something in-between. Then find your dream eyelet dress. I found this bohemian style eyelet dress at Forever 21 that resembles the one worn by this Fashionista. To top off the look, work in your favorite chain cross-body bag and add any subtle bracelets or rings you have lying around.
