There’s no better time for a wardrobe refresh than summertime in SoCal. Price points for every budget and style are available at boutiques across Orange County, making it an exciting destination for vacation shopping. For the ultimate shopping experience, Shauna Jackson of Styled by SJ and Visit Anaheim’s resident stylist points visitors to The Outlets at Orange, conveniently located near several of California’s largest tourist destinations including the Disneyland Resort, Angel Stadium and the Anaheim Convention Center.

As Orange County’s only premiere outlet shopping destination, The Outlets at Orange offers apparel and accessories for everyone, from top brands including Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH, Last Call by Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom Rack and the only Bloomingdale’s outlet store in the Orange County and Los Angeles markets.

Discover what’s on-trend this summer for mom, dad and the kids for a long summer weekend in Anaheim. “All of the looks are meant to be easy and effortless for Southern California—but they’re styled, which makes them feel like slightly elevated casual,” Jackson says.

 

A Day Around Town

A family traveling to Anaheim should dress for days of summer fun under the sun, whether you’re spending the day at DisneylandâPark or catching an Angels baseball game. Comfortable shoes are a must, from casual Converse sneakers to stylish espadrilles and slides that add a pop of personality to any outfit. Lightweight materials like off-the-shoulder dresses and tanks are perfect for layering when you’ll be out and about for several hours at a time. Meanwhile, simple dresses and shorts can be dressed up with accessories such as colorful belts, bags and shoes.

A Day by the Water

No trip to Orange County is complete without an aquatic adventure, with options like a trip to the beach or even your hotel pool. Comfortable attire meant for lounging by the pool can be elevated with just a few small touches. Choose a cover-up, be it a T-shirt or summery dress, with an accent color that plays off the hue of your swimsuit for an effortless look that will keep you in style both in and out of the water. Bright colors are a great vacation option—they also make it easy for the family to have eyes on each other while splashing around. Finish the look with a straw hat and bag, which complements nearly every swim style.

A Casual Summer Night Out

Enjoy an alfresco dinner on one of Anaheim’s many restaurant patios or take a sunset stroll before calling it a night. Moms and daughters can dress up any daytime look with a light denim jacket and heels, swapping out versatile carry-all bags for a crossbody in a colorful neutral that can be used throughout the entire vacation. Dads and sons also have plenty of options: Match a short-sleeve patterned button-up with long pants for an evening look or, on cooler nights, grab a long-sleeve linen shirt with slip-ons in a darker hue for a perfectly polished dinnertime style.
