How to Wear Kilim Shoes in the Summer

How to Wear Kilim Shoes in the Summer

With summertime travels in full-swing, we thought it'd be a good idea to share some ideas of how you could style yourself in kilim through the warmer months. It can be more challenging to maintain style when the heat kicks in.  So what is kilim and why should you wear it in the summer?

The key to killing it in kilim is understanding fabric weight and color. Although kilim is 100% wool, it is not a warmer option than leather shoes, boat shoes or other sneakers that are popular in the summer months. The key to staying cool is wearing lighter, natural fabrics like cotton and linen. The summer color palette tends to be softer, lighter, and brighter. Here is some inspiration for fine-tuning your summer style. And if shoes aren't your thing, we've got plenty of other kilim goods that can speak for themselves.
