In our last “Summer Style Rituals” post, we curated the best of both sunglasses and chambray or denim shirts that would not only keep your summer styles sharp and bold, but also let you enjoy the casualness of your vacation days. This time, we want to charm you into the effortless style of accessories and watches; surely, you’ll find some warm, summer romanticism out of these curated necessities that will follow you through your adventures through Bali, or your gentle nights on the beach with your loved one.
Revisiting past summers and embracing the present one, we’ve decided to showcase some summer favorites that emphasize the most adored characteristics in the culture of style:
1.) Revolutions in Time and Life, A Collection of Watches-- Watches are just one of the few accessories that can be anything you need it to be; a timekeeper, a statement, a memoir, and even a most reliable travel companion. There is never just one, perfect watch. A watch reflects your best self in the moment, and thus there are watches that can be everyday and watches that are better suited for the rarities we experience throughout life. At Kipper, we are not only enthusiasts, but we also respect what they represent to us in sentimentality, functionality, and the duplicity watches often bring to each of our member’s varying styles. Take your sporty watch out with you to the open seas, or commend your watch’s minimalistic style in a summer suit, or maybe even some chinos. No matter if you bought your watch out of sheer pleasure, or it was given to you by someone you truly cherished, your watch will not only pull together your entire wardrobe, but it will also demonstrate your awareness of how precious time truly is.
Looking for the best watches for leisure and play? A watch that can follow you to the depths of the sea, or through your first romantic get-a-way? Check out Nixon, Daniel Wellington, Timex, Rolex, Omega, Braun, Movado, and Junghans for the best and most affordable in sport to luxury watches!
2.) Simple Charms and Cool Seduction with Jewelry, Rings, and Other Accessories -- Coincidentally, if you’re looking to boost your confidence all the while harnessing the debonair, effortlessness of your wardrobe or style, whatever it may be, the easiest and most essential way to tap into this “attitude-amplifier” is by picking up some simple and small (yet entirely significant) accessories. Whether you’re a bracelet, ring, or chains person, you should always be able to find what makes the boldest hidden statement about you. Couple a woven, black, leather bracelet with tiger-eye beads with a pair of casual trousers, tee shirt, and tasseled loafers. Or, hook on a skull ornamented wallet chain with your best summer suit to take advantage of that the edge your accessories will give you.
Not sure where to get the best accessories that fit your aesthetic? Peruse these names for some inspiration or ideas: Bauble Bar, Miansai, Alexander McQueen, and Luis Morais, or support small business by finding local jewelry and craft making stores that bring out the best in your community! Even Etsy is a great place to support artists that have a plethora of artistic vibes!
