7 Outfits L.A. Girls Are Wearing to Beat the Summer Heat

7 Outfits L.A. Girls Are Wearing to Beat the Summer Heat

L.A. girls are experts when it comes to summer style. Which makes sense, considering they live in one of the few major American cities that’s relatively warm year-round. Whether they’re in the midst of the mild winter months or the sweltering summer season, they know how to piece together outfits that marry fashion and function, thus keeping their cool while hanging out beachside in Malibu, jaunting around DTLA, filling up the farmer’s market in Echo Park, or heading out to brunch in WeHo.

As someone who grew up in Michigan and moved to L.A. a mere three years ago, I’m still not used to the incessant heat that radiates through the city from July through October (as I write this, it’s a balmy 79 degrees, although temperatures are only expected to rise as we close out July and enter August).

When it gets blisteringly hot, it’s tempting to wear as little as possible—and dresses certainly fit the bill. However, many of you might share in my #1 summer frustration: finding so many cute dresses that are just too darn short.

I always find myself pining after super cute, celebrity-loved dresses, but if it’s not a midi or maxi dress, it’s laughingly inappropriate for my 5’10” frame. It’s not just tall girls, however. I recently overheard our 5’3″ social media editor, Caitlin,  chatting about the struggle of too-short dresses. Which gets me to the point of my story: Irina Shayk just demonstrated a simple style hack to solve this sartorial problem. She wore bike shorts under her Reformation dress, which is an amazingly simple yet genius way to make short dresses suitable for running … Read the rest

7 Major Summer Trends French Women Would Never Wear

We’re not totally on-board with all the big trends that crop up on runways and fashion influencers’ Instagram accounts, but this summer, we are living for the whimsical puffy sleeves, strappy sandals, tie-dye, and beaded jewelry we’re seeing. That said, we have noticed that while the American fashion girls we follow online for inspiration seem to be fully embracing all sorts of trends this summer—from chic and elegant to vibrant and whacky—the French women we scroll past are leaving out a few specific ones.
