Summertime, and the living is easy! So, your off duty put together should be too. Nothing looks as effortless and cool as suiting up in some SoCal summer style. Channel your inner surfer, skater or Spicoli with these laid back pieces perfect for the beach and pool. Dude, just because your land locked doesn’t mean you can’t hang ten in these tasty threads.
Schools out for summer but these checkerboard Vans will never go out of style. A skater staple, these slip-ons sneaks reached cult status after appearing on Sean Penn as Jeff Spicoli in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”.
Suns out, guns out! SoCal summer style requires a tank top. This TOPMAN USA version looks sharp on the boardwalk and at the skate park. Wear it with your oldest most faded pair of jeans and flip-flops to rock that 70’s surfer vibe all summer long.
Not all swim trunks are created equal. These 311 Limited-Edition Sunset Board Shorts from Birdwell Beach Britches are authentic Cali through and through. Inspired by “the magic hour on the California coast” this style has been paddling out for over 50 years. They’re made of tough SurfNyl and built to last as many lifeguards and surfers can attest.
Not a west coast local? Then maybe you don’t know that the brand Pendleton makes one of the most iconic beach shirts to ever hit the sand. Back in the 50’s, surfers wore the Board Shirt over a layer of Vaseline while catching waves, and later on the beach to keep warm when the sun goes down. They were also worn by a band who went by the Pendletones, until later when they changed their name to the Beach Boys. The rest was history.
No west coast fashion roundup would be complete without a pair of flip-flops. We love Reef because they’re comfortable. And let’s face it that hidden bottle opener comes in handy too. Reef, was started by two brothers from Argentina that had a passion for travel and living the good life. The came to California chasing the American dream, which includes sun and surf of course!
