Indian Summer

Not quite ready for summer to end? With warm weather stretching well into September and October, the South Bay woman must perfect that important transitional wardrobe. Fortunately, our favorite designers are stocking gorgeous pieces in the season’s coolest colors and textures … head-to-toe style for both the very young and young at heart.

Rhapsody in Blue

Evolving and always on the go, our local woman appreciates volume, movement and comfort while giving a nod to calm femininity and clean modernism. Whether in whimsical prints, slinky satins and silks, soft velvets or textured chunky knits in bold, rich hues, she dazzles as the constant chameleon.

Young & Lovely

Fresh off the Rio games, Brazilian flavor should samba through the remaining season. Always with the beach on the front of her mind, the South Bay woman doesn’t need summer’s heat to uncover her coastal cues. Globally inspired and locally relevant, she’s unafraid to cap off the coolest outfit with a bold exclamation point.

What if Coachella moved from April to October? This modern woman likes her vibe to be chic and sophisticated yet relaxed and totally effortless.

Out for Adventure

Even our youngest fashionistas can’t wait to try on this year’s biggest trends. Shiny metallic, faux fur, beautiful prints … these are just a few of the textures and designs kids can look forward to this year. In the South Bay, we believe the younger set can look just as chic as grownups—no matter the season.
