I’ve been noticing a new trend at several of my favorite retailers: white perforated leather bags, shorts, and even shorts. I had been coveting a pair of perforated leather ballet flats last spring that sold out before I could pull the trigger and I’ve been dreaming about them ever since (don’t you know the feeling?). Lo and behold the trend is everywhere this spring and I for one couldn’t be happier to hop on board. It feels very preppy-tennis-whites-meet-runway-show to me but I’ll let you be the judge:

perforated leather bags clutches shoes

bucket bag  //  ballet flats  //  flat clutch

espadrilles  //  crossbody bag  //  sneakers

tote bag  //  shorts  //  d’Orsay flats

I’m probably too pale to pull off the perforated leather shorts but I could totally get on board with a perforated leather clutch or even perforated leather espadrilles. How about you? Any other spring trends you’re looking forward to? (“Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” #namethatmovie)

  1. Love this trend! It was definitely popping up everywhere towards the end of summer but it was impossible to find any pieces I liked when it was time to buy. I love those sneakers. They are so adorable.

  2. I love anything Clare V! I’ve noticed this trend a lot recently too. It’s a fun way to incorporate something different into your every day. I can see getting on board with a clutch or pair of shoes. The shorts might be too much for me too!

  3. I adore perforated leather and own a few pieces that I cherish — those Wang booties, J.Crew quorra flats, and this nude leather tote. Now is the time to dip into clothing and those shorts are incredible! I also LOVE these larger-perforated slides:
