Street Style: This Is What Winter Looks Like at Venice Beach

The boardwalk at Venice Beach in Southern California is legendary for its anything-goes attitude.

But when FN street style photographer Katie Jones hit the scene on a cool day earlier this month, she found that beachgoers opted for comfort over crazy, pairing their jeans and dresses with a variety of casual styles.

Many of the Cali-cool women were fans of classic footbed sandals from brands such as Birkenstock and White Mountain. Birkenstock’s two-strap Arizona style was a particular favorite — it was spotted multiple times in sleek black leather and also in earthy brown suede.

Other popular looks were flat espadrille slip-ons from designer labels such as Chanel and Tory Burch (both easily ID’d with their oversized logo treatments).

And Sam Edelman’s fashionable sandals were another go-to at Venice Beach. His snake-print Oliver style offered a chic spin on the classic flip-flop, and the Gilda gladiator was the essence of boho-chic.
