There’s a reason California has increasingly become a culture for fashion inspiration over the last few years. Once highly disregarded by the fashion community, Los Angeles is now home to some of the best designers, influencers, fashion it-girls (and obviously celebrities) in the world. What is it about California, and west coast style that the world is drawn to?
It’s laid back, a bit more carefree and a place where anything is possible and anything goes. That lifestyle is reflected in our fashion sense. It’s effortless and about balance. It’s “fashion” with a twist- it’s a designer dress off the runway with sneakers, it’s heels with a tee, it’s a dress shirt with strappy boho sandals, it’s a jeweled evening necklace with a fringe leather jacket. It’s wearing ripped jeans to a business meeting. It’s wearing platforms to the grocery store. It’s whatever you want it to be. It’s unapologetic and it’s unique. I think that’s what people are drawn to.
Not to boast, but I think I’m a pretty good example of “California style,” or at least a few people seem to think so. I partnered with DSW (aka Designer Shoe Warehouse aka a one-stop shop for any shoe you could want- they carry um 25,000 pairs- no biggie) to share with you how I’d wear a pair of their boho trend shoes. More so I wanted to show that boho pieces are definitely not just for festivals anymore. Depending on how you wear them, they really can work anywhere. With a few small changes my outfit here can work for so many different situations without ever having to change shoes or pants. Throw on a blazer and your fit for a meeting, change into a white tee for lunch with friends or shopping or throw on a fringe jacket when the evening breeze picks up. The Indigo Rd. Kaily Sandal I’m wearing here is available now at DSW for $39.95.
