Her style blog Something Beachy aims to blend breezy fashion and Southern California culture into one creative space.

Embrace sexy and breezy cuts.
Backless tops and V-neck dresses are some of the stylish and functional pieces you may go for to beat the summer heat with style. Like Kelsey, you may go for a daring lace-up dress and a skinny choker scarf to balance your proportions, or opt for a wrap cut-out slit dress. If it feels too daring for you, simply resort to a V-neck jumpsuit that looks effortless with a touch of masculine appeal. Just complete your statement with a pair of masculine oxfords to make your summer looks more effortless and cool.
Resort to airy and lightweight fabrics to keep you cool in the heat.
Summer fabrics like chambray, rayon, linen, cotton and such are some of the textiles that can keep you cool under the sun. Like Kelsey, channel some bohemian vibe with a free-flowing maxi dress and complete your statement with a pair of Chelsea boots, skinny scarf, and tasseled bag. Or, add some classy feel to your carefree look with a black maxi dress but add some bohemian details like a boho-hat, fringed bag, and ankle boots like Kelsey did.
Complete your breezy statement with summer accessories.
Straw hat, woven tote bags, mercury sunglasses, gladiator sandals and such are some of the summer accessories that can add some breezy flair to your style. Like Kelsey, make your pastel blue shift dress breezy-chic with a pair of gladiator sandals and woven tote bag which will make your outfit work at the beach. Or, simply make an enigmatic statement with mercury sunglasses that will add some carefree touch to your quilted jacket and leather shorts, which will make your road trips more fashionable and effortless. If you’re minimalist, simply resort to a printed silk scarf that will go well with your classy jumpsuits or even monochromatic outfits like Kelsey did.
Add some flair to your style with summer-inspired prints and patterns.
Breton stripes, quirky patterns, novelty prints, candy stripes and such are some of the details you might want to consider to add some creativity to your summer looks. Graphic print leggings, printed button down shirts, and Breton striped tee are some of the casual yet breezy items you may go for to create a bold statement this summer.
