For you lucky girls sunbathing Venice Beach or shopping on Melrose Avenue, this one’s for you! A native California girl or not, there’s no way to do L.A. without a little hint of Hollywood drama and that calls for a whole lot of style.

And what West coast girl wouldn’t embrace this season of bright brights and wild nudes. While it may be tempting to whip out that teal tie-dye t-shirt for a leisure shopping stroll (we’re half kidding), opt for a slinky silk dress instead.

It’s easy to wear a strong piece when you let it stand alone. Keep the rest of your outfit nude but full of texture like a snake embossed purse and a suede pair of toppers. To further accent your dress, your accessories can match a color on your dress, any color than the primary color that is. Here’s black bangles compliment the black belt. Just like that and you’ll be good for a day out and about or a night in the clubs!
