Style by Hipknoties: Summer Swaps
Posted on April 24 2016
If it were up to us, our hot-weather uniform would consist solely of Hipknoties' and frozen margs. And fortunately for us that can pretty much be a reality (minus a margarita here and there). But our love of layering prompted us to consider some quick summer-swaps to replace our warm, heavy jackets, blazers, and accessories.
So, while your favorite cold-weather wear may have to go into hibernation, we've come up with plenty of standout tricks that allow you to stay on your layering A-game, even when the temps hit the 100's. Ahead, 4 summer styling tips that are, literally, no sweat.
Say YAY to Chambray — A denim jacket is by far one of our favorite go-to pieces, but when the weather warms up it's time to give old faithful a break. Swap in a lightweight chambray shirt as a cover-up that will add a touch of denim but will be infinitely cooler — in temps, that is.
Go Matchy Matchy — A coordinating ensemb the perfect way to create a modern minimalist look. Simple monochromatic pairings provide an easy-to-wear, seamless head-to-toe look. Super polished for a daytime meeting yet laid back enough for weekend adventures; in a Hipknoties your look is totally breathable, ideal even for the harshest of summer swelters!
Vest it up — Whether it's a Hipknoties, linen, or leather iteration, a chic, sleek vest will be, without a doubt, your best friend this summer. It adds polish and sophistication, but you're still sleeveless... thus no overheating! Et voila!
Accessories Keep It Cool — It's simple really. A statement necklace, metallic clutch, or embellished sandal will instantly up your style, even when you're wearing very (very) few pieces of clothing.
