Embrace Eyelet!

I’m having a summer romance with eyelet. A small hole usually lined with fabric, leather, or even metal, eyelet has been around forever — but this season it seems to be getting a modern update and can be seen in everything from hip jewelry to pretty home décor, trendy paper crafts to adorable baby toys.

My infatuation with eyelet stems from a combination of nostalgia (here’s looking at you, little yellow sundress circa 1978) and the fact that it’s perfect for this time of year (holes = built-in air conditioning!). And unlike my crushes of summers past (Sun-In, that boy who drove the Camaro, pink jelly shoes), eyelet doesn’t result in icky hair, tears, or unnecessary sweating.

Check out the fabulous Etsy eyelet finds gathered below, then have a cool, relaxed summer by saying yes to eyelet (and no to those Camaro-driving lotharios).
