Trend Alert: SURF CITY

Friday I'm heading down to my hometown of sunny San Diego, which is the perfect city to embrace this season's surf inspired clothing. High-end designer's translated the surf city vibe literally and figuratively, through the use of scuba stripes and rash guards as well as ocean hues and even photo prints. 
Left to right: Opening Ceremony Scuba Floral Dress, Derek Lam Scuba Dress, Herve Leger Scuba Dress,  McQ  Alexander McQueen  Rash Guard Top,  Alexander Wang Track Suit Dress, Harvey Faircloth Surf Printed Dress, Rag & Bone Surf Dress

The casual market has no shortage of surf culture classics either. Neon notes, bandage bathing suites, friendship bracelets and funky patterns are just a few of the trends that take me back to my high school days of working summers and weekends at the local surf shop.

Featured: Chan Luu bracelet, Jets by Jessika Allen Highway Paneled Swimsuit , Diane von Furstenberg Backpack,  Mara Hoffman crop top, Casio Watch, Herve Leger Bandage Bikini Top, Basta Surf Tico Shorts, Carrera Sunglasses, Stella McCartney Hawaiian print T-shirt, Diane von Furstenberg Kaiti Thong Flat Sandals,  Christopher Kane Rainbow Lace Dress, Alexander Wang Chloe High Heel Sandals, Rag & Bone Biba Shorts

  10. You got an awesome blog. Hopefully we can follow each other. I love the surf inspired clothing. I am a local girl from Maui and spent everyday at the beach. I've done a little surfing but I love Stand Up Paddle Boarding. it's too bad that I don't live on Maui no more. Actually living in Vegas but the best part is I go home once a year to visit my parents and friends. have a wonderful day.

  20. This reminds me of Blake Lively's photo shoot a little while back for Vogue where she epitomized the California girl beach wear look.

    I miss San Diego so much! I grew up in Solana Beach, so you have no idea how much this post makes me long to hop on a plane and pack some neon beach wear with me.
