Style Trend Spring / Summer 2014: Perforated Leather
One of the top spring/ summer 2014 style trends for women is perforated leather. Think of it as the new eyelet. It was only a matter of time really. Women's fashion has taken a strong, modern turn in recent years. Even the florals have become sleeker and edgy. While feminine trends like chiffon, lace, and pastels are still in for spring (as always), when it comes to eyelet and perforated fabrics, it's all about sleek leather and geometric shaped as opposed to the traditional boho-chic eyelet.
Designer brands like COACH, Tory Burch, Juicy Couture, and Michael Kors all have lots of new handbags in perforated leather for spring/ summer 2014. More affordable accessory brands like JustFab also have several perforated leather items out this season. Keep reading for my picks under $100.
