The essence of California cool was on full display in BCBG Max Azria’s Spring 2016 collection presented at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Max and Lubov Azria took a sporty approach to their spring collection, which included a medley of board shorts, breezy tunics and tie-dye bucket hats. Oftentimes, looks from the runway don’t translate into wearable fashion for non-celebrities but not the case here. You can definitely rock these looks for spring but, honestly, I’m skeptical about the bucket hats.
Regardless, the bohemian surf style of BCBG’s spring collection is the epitome of effortless chic. The designers brought the coveted look alive in a stream of pastel tones and layered pieces, which were in an eclectic mix of textures: flowing hemlines, cable knits, and boxy jackets. Models were expertly styled in beach waves, low-key makeup, and a touch of 80’s flair with leg warmers, and chunky peep-toe wedges. If you need help raising your outfit game for spring, I suggest you start with these 10 looks for inspiration. Ready to dip your fashion toes in the West Coast look?
