How to Outfit Your Summer in Venice Beach Style

It’s officially June. Which means endless summer days lie ahead. To inspire your sunny-day look? We turned to a place that knows warm weather year-round: Venice Beach, CA. Here are the three items you need to pull off that easy, laid-back vibe.

Venice Beach–Inspired Summer Dressing

On Top: Go for a lighter-than-light cotton tee (or tank for the beach) in any shade of blue. Wear untucked, always.

On Bottom: Knee-length chinos in an easy neutral or, if you’re feeling bold, a pop of red or out-there print. If you can’t have fun in the summer, when can you?

The Extras: All you need? Sunblock and a good pair of sunglasses. Try classic rectangular black frames or a modified take on the iconic aviator – a plastic frame freshens up the traditional look.

If you feel so inclined, complete the look with a (temporary) tattoo or two, then hit the boardwalk like a pro.

Our City Vibe: Style Inspired by Venice Beach, CA Boutique opened Sunday, June 1, at 11AM ET.
