Fusing Summer into Fall Style in California

Style tells a story.   About things like cultural heritage, the type of music you like, or where you’re heading out to for the night.   And just like with verbal communication, it’s best to be genuine and personal—even if it means taking a few risks. It’s the one chance to say who you are (for that day, that moment) without having to say a word.

California is known for its unpredictable, yet beautiful weather, and right now you can still see summer fusing in the streets. Check out some summer styles in Silicon Valley.
