So, there's something to be said for how far the surf brands have come in the fashion world. I'm not sure if you grew up near the beach, but I've been wearing Roxy since it came out - it was the coolest brand where I came up, hangin' at the beaches in LA and it's still kicking with it's original style and must have looks for young girls. I don't think I knew what Chanel or Louis Vuitton was even making... nor did I care - how times change!

But, since I was a girl, Quiksilver, the big Poppa bear to Roxy, has created a women's line to go along with the men's line for a more sophisticated Roxy girl growing up. I can truly say it looks not only hip, but is made really well and doesn't have the surf bum feel. From their Bohemian Beauty appeal to the Rocker Chic looks, you can go out in what started out as apparel to surf in and be compared to someone who just spent a big lot shopping on Robertson.
Dresses are in the $70-$80 range and they have everything to complete a wardrobe. Not only stylish, the brand stays true to the look and feel - the "models" are not quite just pretty faces. They are artists, songstresses and do-gooders who not only capture exactly the words the line would speak, but also inspire the women who wear it. So if you're like me, head back to your roots, womens.quiksilver.com... live a little!
