A white eyelet dress is a timelessly beautiful choice for a summer affair. Whether you are attending a graduation event or walking the streets of a foreign country on vacation, the breezy lightness of an eyelet dress makes it the perfect summer wear.
The Eyelet Derby Dress from J. Crew seems like something you would spot on a street corner in Paris. Super-thin spaghetti straps and a fitted bodice lead up to a fuller, pleated skirt with a scalloped hem. Its eyelet detail is subtle, appearing in four horizontal bands adorning the skirt. For someone with a small torso, this is a very flattering silhouette.
You can never go wrong with a strapless eyelet dress, like the one from Banana Republic. This timeless A-line silhouette comes in regular, tall, and petite sizes, so you can find the right size for you no matter what your measurements are. The dress has an allover eyelet design that is perfect for the season.
Tibi has another take on the eyelet strapless dress. Its vision has a sweetheart neckline, as opposed to the straight-across one on the Banana Republic dress. At the bust, there are defined cups, which can help to define and enhance your chest. If you are well endowed but have a small figure, it might be difficult to size this dress for you. It is best suited for someone with homogenous proportions. The skirt of the dress cuts at mid-thigh, shorter than the Banana Republic style, which falls at the knee.
Designed by BCBGMAXAZRIA, the Floral Eyelet Dress is a cool approach to the style. Most interesting are the back, which has two open sections, and the cutout neckline. These slightly revealing portions balance the demure quality of eyelet with the seductive nature of visible skin. The skirt of the dress cuts a few inches above the knee. This dress would look great on just about anyone.
Many people fear shift dresses. Some think they’re too funky. Others call them unflattering. But for the almost any figure, a shift dress can be perfectly complementary. This mod style appears in Laundry by Shelli Segal’s Eyelet Shift. The dress has two layers: a sheer eyelet frock and a separate white slip. On the top layer, the eyelet print is big and bold, as was the style in the 60s. If you’re looking to try something different this summer, experiment with a shift dress.
Far from your standard shopping experience, Modcloth offers a diverse variety of clothing and accessories. The Eyelet Paradise Dress is no exception. This dress consists of sheer eyelet overlay and a second slip-like layer for coverage. The top layer has a V-neck, trailed by embroidery that cuts down the dress at the breastbone. Eyelet details flutter out at either side of the dress, creating the free-flowing look that is the essence of Modcloth.
