Spring can be kind of hellish. On the one hand, you find yourself lusting over warm-weather wares. On the other, it's way too early to don anything approaching bare skin. So in the interest of all things holey, we have one suggestion: Perforated accessories. Unlike the heavy soles you've been stomping around in, options like Loeffler Randall's perforated boot are an ideal transitional pair—substantial enough for now, but light enough to see you all the way to sandal season. And guys take note, this trend works well for you too. Not only is perforation in step with the athletic vibe seen on runways like Dior Homme and Calvin Klein, but the breathable leather offers a more stylish alternative to the flip-flop without risk of overheating. With that in mind, here are a few of our perforated picks. From Martin Margiela's leather tote to Tashkent's booties, they're definite proof that this season, perf's up.
