SoCal Fashion Editor’s Summer Style Must Haves

Fashion Editor, Natalie Dickens Shares her Summer Style Must Haves

Summer textures and prints, flowy pants, day to night dresses, crop tops, skirts from mini to maxi, and of course denim, are just a few of my summer style must haves. Summer style is all about being comfortable and staying cool, all while looking your best of course! And with these summer must have’s you’ll be doing just that.

It’s no surprise that I love a crop top; and denim is always a go to. But this summer I’m thinking a little less denim, replaced by more skirts and skorts. That’s right, I said skort! Who said skorts were just for our adolescent years? The look of a flirty skirt with the comfortability of shorts; It really is the best of both worlds.

Scroll to see 6 looks I created from my summer style must have list. PLUS shop other styles I’m currently loving!
