Style & Swag: Skater Girls

In case you haven’t visited, here’s a friendly FYI: Southern California summers are hot, obvi. The sun shines relentlessly with long days and short nights which means we’re out cruising on a daily basis. Basically, it’s the prime season for street surfing seshes. We love it, skinned body parts included, because there’s nothing like feeling the wind through your hair, right? Yes, skateboarding is still dominated by the dudes, but we wanted to celebrate all of the ladies who skate. (Tomboys FTW.) Especially the pioneers like Vicki Vickers, Patti McGee, Ellen O’Neal, Robin Logan, Judi Oyama, and Cindy Whitehead. Plus, how badass is it to see Katharine Hepburn, Farrah Fawcett, and Jodie Foster in all of their vintage glory cruising on boards? Check out our gallery of super rad skating ladies.

So, whether or not you hop on a board, it’s undeniable that skate culture has heavily influenced fashion. Our favorite cut-offs, slip-on sneakers, and perfectly worn tees and tanks are reliable standbys. We’ve included our much-loved GoJane picks below, and if you’re in the mood for a cruise… Well, hit us up!
