STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Bow Down Daisy Duke

It’s probably safe to say that the majority of the world is familiar with Katy Perry’s hit song "California Gurls." In a nutshell the smooth and fun lyrics defined the West Coast as an upbeat and colorful party with tan bombshells bouncing around. This occurs generally on the other end of the week but Ms. Perry mentioned some very correct notes on L.A. style. There is a sense of carefree and elusive sex appeal along with key pieces and to-die-for accessories. Los Angeles has highlighted maxi dresses, Alexander Wang bags anchoring arms, and oversized sunglasses.

There is something completely classic about mini jean shorts. For the record, you don’t always have to wear bikinis on top. When you’re sporting denim daisy dukes you can stride in whatever you want. This Fashionista took a cool approach with styling her front-button shorts with a white shirt, opaque dotted knee highs, black suede loafers, and gold details. She looks effortless, beating the heat with something chic, simple, with a flirty twist. Showing some leg doesn’t always mean showing the rest. It’s about playing with proportion and having some fun. For bike rides down Venice beach try a dark wash paired with a vintage stripe tee, and nautical jewelry. Evenings Downtown at the art walk are funky, so go wild with a stone wash fit, oversized sweatshirt top, and sneakers. Griffith Park picnics have an air of old time romance. You can frolic swiftly in a pair of distressed floral prints shorts, chambray shirt, and oxfords. When going day to night get some light wash cut offs paired with an oversized tank, an easy fit cargo jacket, and a scarf. Spring and summer, here come the California Girls. Whether you’re on the sand or the sidewalks bow down to your daisy dukes…they’ll be good to you.
