Perforated150x150One of my favorite trends that are back for spring and summer is perforated fashion pieces. From bags to shoes, dresses to tops and even jewelry, all of which have rounded out my favorite perforated looks for summer. Why do I love perforated stuff so much? Well, because it’s trendy and fun to wear of course. But, also because it’s airy and light which is perfect for the hot weather during summer. So, you might be asking “how does this translate into gift giving?” Well, get ready to gift the trend after reading through this post.

I’m absolutely obsessing over the perforated details on handbags this season. I really love the Vince Camuto Perforated Leather Tote ($248) as an everyday piece & Rebecca Minkoff’s ‘M.A.C. – Bombe’ Leather Crossbody Clutch in white.

Clutches are also a great buy if you want to give something  that is subtle, but super trendy at the same time. The Danielle Nicole Parker Clutch ($48) and the Milly ‘Addison Facile’ Patent Leather Clutch ($275) are both great for the lady who loves a perfect night out.

If you’re hesitant about whether the person receiving the gift will like the full perforated look, then start with something that has a small perforated detail and is practical like a wallet, bracelet or cosmetic case. My favorite picks are the Tory Burch Robinson Spectator Zip Continental Wallet ($235) in stream and the La Mer Black Perforated Soho Wrap ($90) watch.

For the girl who lives to try out every trend of the season don’t be afraid to be a little more daring. You can easily take this trend to the next level by picking a product that has a vibrant color with the perforated detail. Since neon is everywhere this summer a bright pink or yellow is the perfect color to pick. Check out my favorite fluorescent picks.
