Get That Effortless Californian Style

All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I’ve been for a walk
On a winter’s day
I’d be safe and warm
If I was in L.A.
California dreamin’
On such a winter’s day

Floaty dresses, blue jeans, slouchy tees and delicate accessories with an edgy flair certainly best describe the key essentials of a California girl’s style. When shopping for your own pair of everyday denims, keep an eye out for boyfriend, distressed or bleached designs to add a little extra cool factor to your leg game.

The brunch-to-beach lifestyle requires a tee or polo that looks equally good with denims and sneakers as it does thrown simply over a bikini.

For cooler temperatures, the cozy oversize sweater is a California staple. Paired with casual leggings or layered over a dress for a funky mix-up, the snuggle-worthy style offers just the right amount of warmth without sacrificing the laid-back attitude.

A looser minidress and an A-line skirt will bring some of that Californian breeziness to your wardrobe. No matter how you define your style, a denim jacket should be a staple in your wardrobe. Pair it with denims for old times’ sake or layer it over a maxi dress for a chic romantic look.

For a girl on the go, high heels just aren't a practical, everyday option. And while casual sandals are a California must have, sneakers are the wardrobe staple that will get you where you need to go no matter what season it may be.


Bellerose is the one thing I always grab when I don’t know
what to wear, it’s always stylish.

With all these little tips at hand, be ready to shrug off the enveloping silhouettes of winter to greet spring in lighter layers. This coming season is an opportunity to explore fluidity and crisp textures for an effortlessly casual chic look, like a true West Coaster.
