Details Details: Mesh Well
Some might say it’s counter-intuitive to sport cutouts during the colder months. (Others might say it’s straight-up cray.) But who says you have to bare your skin to start tapping spring’s perforation trend? In the name of all things hole-y, protect yourself against the polar vortex and try a pair of perforated shoes instead.
Here’s why hole-punched heels are a win-win: On the one hand, you can reference the chic cutouts seen on the spring 2015 runways, from the fishnet frills at Rodarte to the windowpane caging at Versace to the laser-cut leather overlays at Proenza Schouler. On the other, you can flash some transparency-inspired style stat without freezing your butt off to boot.
Whether you choose a punctured-leather ankle boot, a lattice-covered pump or a style that boasts the season’s must-have mesh, you can work cutouts the winter way while giving your skinny-jeans-and-cozy-sweater looks an intriguing edge. Feel free to add a pair of slouchy wool socks or opaque tights until temperature reaches double digits, and take comfort in the fact that come spring, your perforated purchases will be the perfect way to keep things cool.
