Start Your Summer Adventure with Kühl Clothing

And believe us, a pair of fancy heels, a cute skirt or dapper loafers can do some amazing things to re-energizing your entire style outlook.

Sky-High Heels

Pairing relaxed-fit denim with dressier heels adds up to such an effortlessly chic look for both day and night. We particularly love oversized boyfriend jeans paired with super sexy pumps. It just elevates the look and keeps the jeans from looking frumpy.

Skirts

The unsung hero of our closets, basic tees are surprisingly versatile for a lot of different occasions. To dress up a simple cotton t-shirt, pair it with a knee-length skirt for the office, and a sparkly mini skirt for a night out. You can even let a printed or sequined skirt shine by pairing it with a very basic tee. It’s all about striking that perfect balance of laidback and feminine.

 

Sweatshirts/Pullover

featured style: Free People In A Hurry Hoodie

+

Leggings

featured style: HUE Floral Gleam Denim Skimmer Legging

Comfy up top, party in the bottom. That’s sort of the vibe this combo achieves with a mix of relaxed and dressy all in one easy-to-wear outfit. Take your oversized grey sweaters and sweatshirts up a notch with printed or textured leggings. The great part is, you can really go all out with the leggings here since the sweater is the more subdued element in this equation. Who says a sweatshirt has to be frumpy? Not with this killer combo!

Menswear Monday: Business Casual, Updated.

Guys, you may think that mundane Mondays are “business as usual”, but we’d like to invite you to shake up your work week with business casual clothing and shoes that are anything but boring and stuffy! 

For work settings that are more on the laidback side, or if your office partakes in “Casual Fridays”, you can’t go wrong with a great-fitting button-up shirt in either a neutral solid or a subtle print. Pair your button-ups with everyday trousers in a more relaxed fabric like twill or cotton.

Remember: the key to avoiding a sloppy business-casual look is to pay attention to fit. Make sure your shirt shoulder seam sits cleanly right at the shoulders and your pant hem isn’t pooling at the bottom. And yes, it IS worth it to get your workwear basics altered by a tailor if it means the difference between looking casual yet professional and just plain unprofessional.
