There’s just something about those California girls. Their style, vibe, and effortless way of doing… everything. Good news: you don’t actually have to live in the Golden State to achieve the look. All you need is revealed below.

BLG-1525-Joie

Loose Waves
Rock fresh-from-the-beach waves (without stepping foot in the ocean). Just follow this step-by-step guide to get the look any time of year.

Laid-Back Style
Maybe it’s the warm weather, but Cali girls have an ease about them. Throw on a short, flowy sundress (like this one) and you’ll practically feel yourself lighten up.

A Sun-Kissed Glow
The trick to achieving a bronze complexion (sans damaging rays)? It’s all in the sunless tanner. Just exfoliate and apply. Here’s how to do it without the threat of streaks.

Boardwalk-Ready Wedges
And for the finishing touch: add a pair of sky-high wedge sandals. They’re comfy, stylish, and you won’t want to rip them off after five seconds.

Our JOIE Boutique opens Thursday, June 13, at 11AM ET.
