The West Coast offers a unique simplicity about it (with a strong partiality to Cali): its geometric architecture, YOLO vibes, and surfer style. LA is like the Paris of the West, given the effortless looks and living the locals acquire.
On the bottom: a trusty pair of stone-washed chino shorts from J.Crew, which are super comfortable and stretchy. They’re made with a lightweight cotton fabric, so you’re less likely to sweat in the upper region of the leg. Have I mentioned the slim-tailored construction? man, I was a fan at first sight.
I typically wear 7″ shorts, given that my legs are extremely short, but I braved my recent trip to J.Crew by purchasing these 10.5″ shorts as a nod to the average West Coast man. Turns out I love the long look (and might even splurge on a few more!).
Topped the outfit with a classic pair of Ray Bans to reflect the sunny-state-of-mind. Also, the sun was blazing while the photos were taken. In other words they were a necessity, not an accessory:)
Are you feeling the West Coast vibes this summer? I know I am:)
