I mentioned the other day how I’m seeing the perforated trend everywhere right now. It’s been around for a while in clothing and handbags, but suddenly it seems to be all the rage with shoes, particularly perforated booties.
It’s really quite clever because this is going to take booties right into spring and summer. The laser cut detail provides some ventilation and makes them more appropriate for warmer weather, plus the texture adds a fun detail to any outfit.
Here are a few that caught my eye. I tried to gather a range of price points.
#1. Cheslea28 Perforated Shoulder Bag // I’m seeing a lot of perforated totes, but this is one of the only shoulder bags I’ve seen. It comes in several really pretty spring colors including white, tan, and black, as well as the periwinkle shown above. I also love this bucket bag by Stella & Dot.
#2. Payless Perforated Lace-Up Flats // The perforated details give new life to this trend that seem to be petering out. I really love the feminine detail it lends the shoe. I’m also in love with the perforated ballet flats from Sam Edelman. FYI, Payless has a similar version for considerably less.
#4. 1.STATE Perforated Bootie // These genuine leather perforated booties come in blush, brown, and black, and I love the pointy toe for elongating the leg. They have a memory foam footbed on a 3″ stacked heel, so they should be more comfortable than most.
#5. Caslon Perforated Slip-On Sneaker // Slip-on sneakers are everywhere this spring, and the perforated leather gives them breathability while also keeping them on trend. These shoes get great reviews. I also really like these and these. Oh, and I just found out that these at LOFT are 40% off!
#6. Vince Camuto Perforated Leather Tote // This is bag leather, and it also comes in a pretty sand color that has a totally different laser cut pattern. it looks super roomy inside, and it has that covered magnetic closure that I love. It is unlined, but there are interior pockets. Zappo’s has this bag in black and bronze.
#7. Perforated Belt // This isn’t really a new look, but I think it’s was a fun way to participate in the trend if you’re not sure you can get on board with the perforated shoes and handbags.
#8. Urban Originals Perforated Tote // This is another roomy tote, but it’s faux leather so less than $100. I love the ring detail. It comes in this taupe as well as a black version. Also, Target has a cute one for less than $20.
Perforated totes are everywhere right now. I was eyeing up this one by Louise et Cie at Nordstrom last weekend. I adore that laser cut design and the tassel detail, and the rose blush color is perfect for spring. I’m also totally crushing on this orange Tory Burch Perforated Hobo. So many bags, so little time… ha!
