Eyelet fabric is made up of carefully stitched holes to form a lace or floral pattern. But don't confuse these holes for the ones in your distressed jeans; the eyelet holes are lined with stitching, which prevents any fraying, giving the design a whole different look. The result, as seen in Louis Vuitton's Spring 2012 show, is ultra feminine.

Think of it as lace 2.0 because while eyelet fabric is just as elegant, it's also twice as durable so there's no need to be worried about runs or tears. Whether you decide to go with big and bold eyelets or small and subtle, give some texture to your wardrobe and bring your prettiest pieces to the beach, wedding or patio.
