Style doesn't take the summers off. In fact, it becomes even more important to look cool when the temperature rises. However, it doesn't require a complete wardrobe overhaul - here are a few simple hacks that can make sure your outfits are on point during the summer as they are the rest of the year. With the right fabrics, some bright accents and the perfect blend of bold accessories, your wardrobe will be season-ready.

Light linen layers
Layering is a great way to create a dynamic look, but when it's hot outside, the last thing you want to do is wear too many heavy fabrics on top of each other. Luckily, you can have your layer cake and eat it too: with linen. Light enough to wear even in August, but flexible enough to work in the office place, it's the ideal material when you want to put together an outfit that screams summer without sacrificing style. 

Toss on a linen suit jacket over a v-neck t-shirt for a day look that transitions right into date night. Casual Fridays are a cinch with the short sleeve linen polo, a shirt that looks equally at home in a relaxed office or at a friendly barbecue. For formal occasions, up the ante with a twill suit vest. It's just the ticket for a summer wedding. 

Fashion favors the bold
Summer is all about taking chances and standing out, and there's no better way to do that than being bold. Don't be afraid to add splashes of color throughout your outfits, or to make people sit up and take notice when you walk in the room. Pair a multicolor check dress shirt with a floral silk tie for a workplace look that is bright without being too garish. If you're feeling particularly natty, summer is the right time to make the leap and start wearing bowties.  

All about accessories
You might not be able to wear your trench coat and gloves during the summer, but that doesn't mean there aren't a ton of accessories that you can use to finish your outfit off. Protect your eyes and add a dash of cool with a pair of wayfarer sunglasses, and know you're on time to every event with a classic and stylish watch. 

It's also the perfect season to break out a new hat. Not only will it protect you from the sun beating down, they also look great and go perfectly with a range of seasonal outfits. Our straw panama fedoras  are light and flexible enough that you can wear it with just about every outfit. In short, it's the ideal summer accessory.
