Jenni Kayne Shows Us How To Do Cali-Girl Cool (Even During Winter!)

You might be wondering how to encapsulate that California, cool-girl style into an outfit. Well, we're pretty sure designer Jenni Kayne has the answer. Branching out way beyond her best-selling d'Orsay flats, Kayne's pre-fall 2014 collection provides an approach to casual elegance that's utterly refreshing, understated, and easy to wear. A billowy, white maxi-skirt paired with a soft camel sweater, faux-fur snood, and a pair of shades — we're in sartorial heaven. The slightly oversized silhouette is everything we love about fashion this season, not to mention the comfort level, which is simply off the charts for this look. So, as the temperatures dip into their seasonal norms in the coming days, you can bet we'll be slipping into this Cali-goddess outfit, stat. All we ask? Don't judge if we "accidentally" wear this ensemble to work twice in one week.
