Enhance Your Summer Wardrobe with Some Exuberant Designs from Cravat Club
We’re past the solstice, and the sweltering months of late summer are coming into view. With the sun high in the sky, and lighter outfits all the rage, it’s time to let some colour into your wardrobe. Thankfully, this is the perfect time of year to experiment and be playful; sober and sombre are out once again, and dopamine dressing is back. In short, if it feels good, wear it this summer!
Our SS22 collection is a great place to start, with an array of bright and pastel shades, playful prints and tropical accents, giving you plenty of ammunition for the warmer season ahead. Furthermore, all of our printed silk cravats are super light in weight and feel wonderfully smooth against your skin, so they’re perfect for hot and humid weather. With brilliant hues and exuberant designs, this collection will really make your style pop this summer.
The botanical pattern on this pastel cravat makes for a versatile and beautiful ascot. Powder blue with a striking black contrast brings out the lighter shades, lending a light touch to a darker outfit, or playing perfectly with a light coloured suit. Delicate and playful, but still with a certain amount of reserve and poise.
The cardinal red and sorbet orange of the Kenji cravat, along with its beautiful and peaceful Koi carp motif, makes a visually striking accompaniment to a light coloured jacket. If you want levity, colour and a sense of impeccable style, this combination might just be the one for you. A perfect item of summer wear that is versatile enough to last through the seasons, pairing well with many different colours and styles.
Nothing says summer quite like a tropical print, and our Rimba cravat is a perfect distillation of this. With a deep forest green background and a print featuring some charismatic jungle creatures, this cravat is a real head-turner, and brings some sunshine into any outfit. Pair it with a linen suit for some tropical elegance, or perhaps a tan jacket for a subtler effect. Whatever outfit you employ it with, this cravat is no shrinking violet, so make sure you wear it with confidence.
If you're not able to pull off a pastel orange suit like our model pictured above, but have a favourite dark-coloured suit that you look great in, even on the hottest days, then you may want something in subtler shades that blends well. In this case, we’d like to steer you towards our Hiroto cravat, with its beautiful pastel pink detailing and cranes-in-flight print. Pairing very well with darker greys and blues, the cravat still has a deftness of touch that suits a summer’s day perfectly, and gives a darker outfit some delicacy.
Why not try our Joaquin cravat if you're looking to brighten up your attire? A warm orange background with a Morocco red, navy and sand geometric floral pattern is understated and surprisingly versatile, and can work with many outfits. These colours work particularly well with a mid-dark grey or an earthy brown linen or cotton suit, and are a great way to embrace the season's weather without having to be too daring with the design.
A warm and sandy beige, hazelnut, pistachio and orange cream paisley pattern sits beautifully on a cool and fresh Niagara blue in our Jensen cravat. A popular and timeless design, the contemporary colour palette really changes how this classic paisley pattern looks in context. This marriage of old and new pairs very well with a light coloured linen or cotton suit, and is a perfect contrast of classic and modern.
This Japanese dragon print in mizu blue, claret red and matcha green is a strong statement. Eschewing any idea that “Japanese” equals delicate and refined, this design is strident and confident, pairing perfectly with an ecru, stone or light brown suit, and really giving you a charismatic finish to your outfit. Be bold with our Japanese dragon print, and swagger through your event!
Dressing in summer can be a joy. Colour is actively encouraged, “fun” is the name of the game and it’s easy to find something to express yourself in. We’d advise using these brighter, lighter accessories with light, pastel colours to really make the most of them, and while colour is an important factor, do watch out for clashes and make sure your outfit has a harmony to it.
