Fake summer fashion

Jahnvi Mehta and Nawal Abdul

With summer around the corner, it’s easy to lose yourself in the Spectrum and South Coast Plaza at Brandy Melville, Quicksilver and Hollister. But why waste your time and money on all the basic outfits when you can become the fashion trend. Here’s a couple tips to kickstart your Summer Looks™. 


  1. Raincoats: Raincoats are known for protecting you from water, so why not use them in  the most watery place anyone can think of: the ocean. Water in your ears? That’s so last season. This summer, throw on that yellow hood and go see some fish in style.  
  2. Zorts: California is known for its random weather patterns, and this year is no exception. Save yourself the personal disappointment of not dressing right, and simply zip your pants away when the sun gets too hot. 
  3. Ice Cubes: If AP Environmental Science has taught us anything, it’s that the effects of climate change are imminent and will affect our summer lifestyles. Luckily, we can rely on the world of fashion to save us, if only for a little while. An ice-cube headband as a part of your daily wear will not only make sure you are cool but also trendy as ever. Just be sure to stick your head in a freezer every once in a while.
