25 Ways to Perforated Perfection

You know those perfectly-punched holes you often see dotting your workout attire for ventilation's sake? Well, they're not just for the gym anymore. Perforated pieces have been popping up on runways for several seasons now—and there are tons of shoppable iterations on the market, too. Hole-punched leather items are everywhere at the moment, but these teensy symmetrical circles look just as sharp on cotton, knits and even metal.

We've poked around (ha!) to seek out our favorite takes on the trend. Whether you prefer a subtle version of the look (say, a flirty dress with a pretty perforated hem) or an extreme one (we're mad about Proenza's punched-out leather skirt), you'll be on the way to perforated perfection in no time. Holey moley!
