Life’s a beach in Malibu, where surf-chic style reigns supreme all year round. For those heading to warmer climates on the West Coast, celebrity fashion stylist Dana Tycher Reisman, founder of personal shopping and styling service DTR Styles, shares her top picks for a relaxed Malibu look.
“Malibu is one of my favorite places in the world – I just love the laid back vibe. The style is beachy and fun, with a little edge inspired by the vibrant Malibu music scene.
I recently styled a photo shoot and ended up creating so many incredible looks that I had to share at least one with you. In this look, the model is wearing Timo Weiland with Sergio Rossi heels and an Eleanor Kane necklace.
I’m all about the geeky-chic look: it’s the perfect route for those who want to spice up their “9-to-5” work wardrobe. Pairing a printed skirt with a funky blouse turns any outfit into an effortlessly polished look, especially with the addition of a statement necklace and subtle heels.
To recreate this outfit, I recommend mixing textures together. I love the idea of pairing this Lovers & Friends “Uh Huh” Sliced Mini Skirt (available at Urban Outfitters) with the Lush Cutout Laser Lace Shirt (available at Nordstrom). Add a fun necklace with a chunky sandal or pump (I love these Calvin Klein ones) to complete the look.
Don’t you ladies always find it so hard to style pastels together!! We were taught to think that pink doesn’t go with blue, but look! Equipment says it does! I personally am not a huge fan of color if you have not realized that by now, however, for some reason, I was totally digging this look as a ensemble together (if I had Brits long thin model legs of course, ugh) I love the edginess of the snake skin pattern sheer sexy blouse, mixing it with a color block short, and adding a soft feminine touch with the necklace and shoes. Love this look for this summer girls! Rock it!
