The Secrets to Dressing Like a Californian

Surf’s up and the sun is shining: California, here we come.

The state of California is one that is home to a large number of stylish men. With so many industries based in the state, that are based around fashion and style, as well as being home to plenty of wealthy people, it can feel like a bit of a fashion mecca. Plus, with a climate that feels the summer-all-year round, the sartorial repertoire of Californian is a little less varied that an East Coaster would dress somewhere like New York City.

Whether you choose to visit Los Angeles, San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Palo Alto or down in San Diego, this post is all about showing you that Californian style isn’t all about flip-flops and vest tops. So here are some of the ways that you can dress like those stylish men in California, even when you’re not one.

The Secrets to Dressing Like a Californian

Casual Denim

It can be hard to differentiate between some of the real celebs and those that are just wannabees if you’re walking down an LA street or Santa Monica. This is because there is a mix of fashion with casual styles, and with a few certain accessories and pieces, everyone starts to look famous. The indie frontman band look is pretty popular, with things like washed out denim, band t-shirts, and black leather jackets (or vegan leather if you’re a true Californian). Heavy boots are a must too, and things like flannel shirts are popular, whether around the waist or under a jacket, for when the weather gets a little cooler.


When you work in an office in California and need to dress accordingly, what do you do when the weather calls for something a little lighter? Summer tailoring is definitely a thing, from LA to San Francisco. Using light fabrics like linen can be a must, as well as seersucker. In fact, if your office allows, a lot of people will opt for boat shoes with shorts and shirt, for a modern twist on office wear.


When there is weather that allows you to wear casual wear for pretty much anything that you need to do, then there is a really relaxed feel to your everyday wear in California. In fact, things that are a little tongue-in-cheek, and are indicative of sports teams is a popular choice. So sports jackets, puffy jackets, and sneakers are all things to have for your casual wear. Plus, this kind of style shows a mesh of the many subcultures in America, but for those in California, it can really work.

All White

Hollywood and the surrounding areas are never too far away from seeing someone dressed in all white. If you’re feeling a bit fancier and ditching the t-shirts and leather jacket, then white on white is a popular choice. A plain white shirt that is tucked into slim-fit white jeans means you have a pretty blank canvas with which to accessorize with, whether it is stylish loafers or a pair of high-tops.
