SURFER CHIC

Summers in California bring out the tie-dye surfer look in many people - even those who have never hung ten.  You don't need to head to the beach.  Even Target carries tie-dye shirts and skirts on the racks.

Proenza Schouler's Spring/Summer collection took this look to the next level.  Inspired by their surfing days, the design duo tie-dyed neon colors and brought the surfer t-shirt from Beach to City.

 Here's a look I posted on Polyvore using Proenza Schouler's Surfer Chic dress as well:


Paying designer prices for a Surfer look may seem a bit absurd.  So, I looked around and saw that small boutiques have very affordable versions (certainly under $75) of the Proenza Schouler dress too.   In fact, the one I show here even has slimming gathers at the waist and shoulders.

To sport this Surfer-Gone-Glamorous look:
  • Begin with an above-the-knee tie dye dress in neon colors
  • A chunky heel, like a wedge or platforms, adds weight to the short dress.  To make it more casual, try flat sandals or embellished flip flops.
  • No need to accessorize too much since the tie-dye print is your focal point
  • Just top off with your sunglasses!
