Wearing braces in the middle of summer

Wearing braces in the middle of summer

The true fan of braces doesn't care about the season. Whether it's freezing outside or the birds from the sky, the true fan always wears braces. 

Wearing braces in warm weather

Now that summer is in full swing, and we've already had several hot days you might notice that you don't wear your favourite braces as often anymore. But do you have the right braces in your closet? The advantage of braces is that you can wear them with shorts or Bermudas. Also, the rule that you can only wear braces with a shirt is a thing of the past. 

Combining braces in the summer

When temperatures rise, we naturally dress differently. We wear shorts, airy shirts, T-shirts, or sporty polos. Anyone who thinks that you can't wear braces with these items is wrong. You can wear braces with a sporty polo shirt or light linen shirt.

Preferably choose narrow braces in a light colour during the summer. The colour gives a summery look and the narrow straps make it more comfortable to wear on hot days. Because the narrow straps offer less resistance in places where you get hot easily, these narrow braces are highly recommended. Also check to see what material the braces are made of. Braces made from soft elastic are more comfortable to wear than braces made from wool or leather, for example.

Don't doubt about the combination you want to make. A good combination starts with your self-confidence. Do you like to wear short jeans with a basic shirt? Then you can really wear a pair of simple, narrow braces with it. The braces don't always have to play a functional role in your outfit. They can also be added to your look as an accessory. Dare to combine! 

Braces in trendy colours

In our previous blog article, you read more about the colour trends of this season. We see a lot of pastel colours in fashion, but what we also notice is that braces with prints are also selling like hot cakes. We're also big fans of these cheerful accessories that add a bit of fun to your outfit. So, finish off your basic outfit with a pair of braces in a pop art print, for example. We promise you: people won't get bored. And you probably won't either.

By the way, did you know that E.L. Cravatte's patterned braces can be combined with bow ties of the same design? Perfect for those who really want to go out of the box this season.

Excellent tie, silky soft material and extra long as advertised. Allows taller folk to tie knots that use more length.
Thrilled with the tie….absolutely perfect colour and quality. Service and delivery were without fault. About to order two further ties!

Excellent service and quality. I ordered replacement leather ends for braces. They arrived within a few days and I am very satisfied.
Sometimes the quality of on line purchases is not what is claimed. This company seems to be honest and what it says is what you get.

I attend many motorsport awards yearly and wanted some braces that were in fitting. These were just prefect.
Quality is of the highest standard and beautifully made. Very pleased with my purchase.
Order process was simple, delivered in a timely manner and communication was good.
I’d highly recommended and would definitely order again in future.

I ordered a pair of braces for my husband as part of his Christmas gift. He was over the moon with them and they are of really lovely quality. The colours in the two-tone set I chose go really well together and he\'s already worn them multiple times over the holidays. Delivery was also very quick!
