THE Look: Venice Beach Meets New York Chic

THE Look: Venice Beach Meets New York Chic

One of the main reasons I moved to California a year ago was for the ocean. After living in New York for five years and suffering through harsh winters, I was ready for a big change. I wanted sky, ocean breeze, and sunshine. Lots and lots of sunshine!

I live in West Hollywood, but I come over to Venice with my skateboard at least once a week. Where the city meets the sea, Venice has a wonderful, long beach trail that allows me to people-watch, cruise and occasionally, bother some cyclists.

That’s the inspiration for THE Look at the beach this summer. Monochromatic and urbane (my thing) yet appropriate for all water and water-side pursuits, here’s what you need in order to put it together.

The Look 1

Paradise Shirt by Hiro Clark

A new brand in L.A., the designer Hiro Clark is a lovely guy who is super passionate about making collections that are easy to wear with pretty sweet prints. I admire his shirts because they’re all black and white.

Hat by 1KNY
People in L.A. wear hats everywhere from the beach to the Chateau Marmont…to the movies…to Bootsy Bellows. I always pack a hat to hide, either from unwanted attention from the sun, or people. This minimal and modern hat is my favorite.

Trunks by Mr. Turk

These white and black swim trunks have a fantastic material for being active. They dry quickly and fit snugly. I wear them everywhere! Mr. Turk is an extremely colorful brand, so why am I in love?

Bag by Saturdays Surf NYC
I love this bag because it fits all of my little gadgets with just enough room to spare for a sweater and bottle of sunscreen.

See you guys at the beach and in the water this summer! And keep it stylish.
