Summer Fashions 2018: Southern Cali Style

Monday, June 25, 2018

I browse through the June 2018 issue of C Magazine to check out that latest summer fashions. According to this magazine issue, summer fashions are all about intentionally wearing mismatched clothes that clash. Popular colors for summer appears to be blue shades, rose shades, white, gold, and silver. For this fashion post, I decided to just list out some interesting ideas from the California lifestyle magazine.

  • Nature Girl style includes nature-based lifestyle. Perfume tends to have scents of citrus, smoke, jasmine, and organic jojoba oil base. Preferred shoes tend to be flat mules with crystal quartz embellishments and a conductive metal sole. Meals tend to be vegetarian or vegan based on Ashram cookbook recipes. The latest meditation form includes walking through a labyrinth path maze garden. It is all about remaining alert, energetic, and attuned to one’s surroundings.
  • Beach Girl style is all about hanging out at the beach, surfing, eating at cafes, and meditating with a cup of espresso. This person is likely to live in a small coastal cottage, with maybe redwood cedar barrel sauna, and maybe a little jacuzzi in the backyard. With the speaker on, relax in your jacuzzi and listen to your favorite music or read a good book. Consider trying “Hello,” a fluoride-free whitening toothpaste with activated charcoal, mint, and coconut oil.
  • American Girl style is all about wearing denim, rosy-colored lipstick and blush, eating healthy, mostly organic veggies and fruits and maybe raw vegan meals. This girl is likely to carry her tote purse everywhere because it has everything she needs, which includes iPad and iPhone.
  • The 80s professional women are back. Popular items include jackets, blouses and dresses with big shoulders and shoulder pads as well as taffeta poufs. The 80s prom dresses make a comeback.
  • Wear a slip dress in the layered look, over t-shirt, turtleneck, blouses, shirts, and even a light sweater. Maybe even were leggings underneath the slip dress.
  • Headwraps are in, whether hijab, hoods, headscarves and large sunglasses, balaclavas, or hooded capes.
  • Instead of wearing a jacket or cardigan, consider a blanket-style cape or wrap.
  • Animal prints continue to be popular, whether cheetah, zebra, leopard, or tiger print clothes and accessories. Also consider cow prints. Consider wearing a monochromatic animal print outfit.
  • Wear clothes with a graphic message. I often wear clothes with animal rights and animal adoption message.
  • Long dresses in dark, bold, and large floral design.

  • Western outfits include cowboy-style clothes and accessories with fringe, cowboy hat, denim, and pleather. Add some native American detailing because native Indians are a part of the western style and culture.
  • Ornate clothing with needlepoint tapestry outfits.
  • Italian-style shoes include wearing black, off-white and gray pumps with a bow embellishment, Mary Janes, and T-strap heels with patchwork design. Swimsuits and denim shorts have striped or checkered design. This summer’s IT bags are small with long straps.
  • Dressed in the latest California coastal outfit— a Havana Straw Fedora, a light fabric trouser and blazer suit, worn with a loafers or oxfords, California nameplate necklace, fresh ocean breeze scented perfume, stay cool this summer, inside a library, reading, learning, and growing. Strand Boards has an interesting surfboard-style shower that costs $2,899.
  • Hairprint is a natural hair color product that colors gray to either brown or black. This brand also has natural shampoos and conditioners.
  • AKT dance is a combo of dance, circuits, HIIT, and tone classes. Anna Kaiser’s dance company is in Newport Beach, CA.
  • Cannabidiol tends to reduce inflammation, fights aging, and improves skin. Some products that have this ingredient include Kush Queen, KHUS+KHUS, Vertly hemp lip balm, and Lord Jones High CBD Tincture.
  • Outdoor items with nautical stripe designs include hammock, kilim floor cushion, sun umbrella, planter, rug, teak sling chair, Adirondack blanket, clear tote bag with canvas clutch, check napkin, masai woven acrylic fabric, and straw basket.

  • Laguna Beach highlights include golfing, fun beaches, coastal ranch chic décor, classic southern California coastal style, canyon hiking trails are connected to the beaches, and laidback and luxurious lifestyle.
  • Desert Rose look includes Laird hat, clogs, tote bag, one-piece swimsuit, dangling earrings, mid-length skirt with wrap blouse and small purse with long strap. The perfect getaway is Palm Springs, CA.
  • Country Chic look has to do with bold floral print. Consider a white cropped pants, knit halter, and long light coat. Add ear cuffs, floral print headband, rose print satin slides, and floral slip dress. Your perfect getaway is Napa Valley, CA for wine tasting, balloon rides, and outdoor dining.
  • Creative Flair look includes a long sundress with asymmetrical shoulder, logo belt, red triangle-style bra bikini, round and large white rim sunglasses, ballerina flats, and Multiwheel 70 suitcase carrier. You are always on the go, traveling to such excursions as Santa Barbara, CA.
  • Marine Layers look tends to be inspired from a combination of nautical and traditional fashions. A trench coat is worn over blue pants and print blue shirt. Add a small plaid purse and loafers. Ray-Ban sunglasses, denim cutout short dress, anchor earrings, and triangle-shaped duffle bag. Also add a plaid or hounds tooth newsboy cap. This person will likely take excursions at San Diego, CA, and maybe even take a detour to the border in order to check out some towns in Mexico.
  • Your final luxurious destination is Malibu, CA. Prada high heel white sandals, teak lounge chair with white cushions, squared-hooded sunglasses with gold rims and rose-tinted lens, checkerboard lunchpail-style basket purse, velvet sneakers, D&G perfume, diamond-studded charm bracelet, gold fish bones earrings, Versace matching cropped pants, cropped jacket, cap, small purse, and shoes. A monochromatic head-to-toe Versace outfit. One-piece bathing suit with eye-shaped center cutout. Blow-up pool float, silver espadrilles, and lifeguard wicker weave hat. A long flowly skirt, tiered ruffle sleeveless blouse, and over-the-knee boots is worn during evening pool and beach parties. White one-piece bathing suit is worn with a white jacket coverup, flat sandals with cow print, and checkered purse. Blue knee high high-heel boots. A basic t-shirt with a designer logo. So, what to do when you are in Malibu? Dine at authentic Italian restaurants and gelato during the evenings while spend your mornings hiking Solstice Canyon. Shop at One Gun Ranch for biodynamic produce. Hang out at cafes enjoying fresh juices and smoothies.
