If you like your clothes to have an edge, then you are going to love grommets.
These tiny rings of metal are normally used to reinforce holes in sneakers, shower curtains and tents. Although they will continue to serve that function, look for them in all things fashionable, from dresses to jackets and especially in accessories such as handbags and boots.
Grommets are trimming the edges of delicate dresses and flirty tops this summer.
Just a bit of metal transforms these ordinary frocks into urban trendsetters.
They mix equal parts city chic and rock ‘n’ roll and are sure to take you into fall.
