Eyelet Dress for Summer - Kathrine Eldridge, Wardrobe Stylist

I found this eyelet dress for the summer when I was looking to exchange some items on Venus’ website. This neutral-colored sundress is perfect for those hot summer days on rooftop with a cocktail. (Now only if I can get to one!)

Eyelet in Summer

I’ve seen eyelet clothing but have never owned anything with eyelet details. I checked out the definition online of eyelet and this is what I found:

Eyelet describes the design of the fabric rather than its fiber content or weave. Traditionally, eyelet is made from a plain weave fabric, often composed of cotton or a cotton blend. This fabric is usually found in classic colors such as black and white, but pastel shades are also popular.

This makes total sense why I see eyelet mostly in spring and summer. Cotton is best to wear in the heat which is why I need to get more pieces in my wardrobe. (The heat has been off the charts for the last couple of weeks here in Chicago.) I also love the feminine vibes it exudes.

Fit and Flare Eyelet Dress

The fit and flare shape of this sundress is universally flattering on all body shapes. It instantly makes your waist look smaller and conceals any tummy issues. This style detail was the number one reason why I went for this dress.

Now the question is: Is the neutral tan color right for my coloring? I am on the fence with this one. Normally I recommend my clients to stay way from lighter colors that may wash them out. This dress kinda does that to me but the eyelet fabric helps break up the shade. What are your thoughts?

One possibility (that I didn’t think of until now) for making the dress stand out more would be to do color in my shoes or bag. I really love the vintage straw box bag so I wouldn’t change that because it exudes all the summer feels. I could of gone with my green opened SJP pumps which would of matched nicely with the mint-colored earrings and necklace. This might be my plan for when I where this again.

I hope you had a relaxed holiday weekend and enjoy your week ahead! XO
