Hello ModLovers! After a two-week hiatus to shop for new styles you’ll love to love this summer, Style Glossary is back! Delightfully feminine and perfectly demure, eyelet patterning is this week’s topic.
Functional eyelets, or grommets, are small holes sometimes reinforced with plastic or metal for use in corset-making or other laced garments. In the decorative (and adorable) sense, eyelet refers to a lace-like, cut-out print with finished edges, as seen in trims and overlays for many styles here at ModCloth.
Our essential spring frock, The Breathless Dress, features a stunning eyelet overlay. It’s easily dressed up with flashy heels and gold accessories for cocktail parties or dressed down with a scarf and cardigan for picnics under your favorite elm tree. Does your wardrobe feature a healthy dose of eyelet? Thanks for reading and happy shopping!
