Summer is about simplicity and paring down, especially when it comes to fashion.
Think clean lines and soft colors but with interesting natural details. One natural detail material that fits the criteria and epitomizes summer is rope.
Rope is usually associated with a nautical look, but it translates well into land-loving style. Its versatility makes it the perfect trim for a casual knit dress or a strap for a canvas tote bag.
Rope detailing is showing up on everything from sandals to sun hats and jewelry.
The combination of rope and shells create an unbelievably chic ocean-inspired necklace or bracelet.
Natural and neutral, rope details add just the right amount of beach style for summer.
