* Vans and 90s nostalgia making a big comeback
* Cali-based brand makes great clothing that’s often overshadowed by their shoes
* Grab these new staples, all well priced at under $60

Since their creation in 1966, Vans has become a California surf/skate culture staple, and an iconic, worldwide fashion label. Just recently, Vans announced an upcoming collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld, one of the most respected and successful high-fashion designers around. The collaboration is a perfect example of Vans’ timeless versatility, both in style and in business.

But we all know that Vans makes great sneakers – from the old skool to the classic slip on. What many people overlook however is that Vans has started to produce great clothing with the same timeless California style. The clothing, like the sneakers, are very well priced, versatile, and modern with the right amount of vintage inspiration. Here’s some of our favorites.

1. Vans Authentic Short 20

We like these shorts because they’re just the right length and fit for any summer activity. They can be utilized in a trendy, fashion-forward outfit, or as your go-to beaters.

2. Vans Floral Short Sleeve Shirt

Floral shirts are one of the best trends of summer 2017, and will likely stick around for next summer. This one’s great because it has a black background, which makes it much more wearable in fall and spring.

3. Vans Torrey Jacket

Skater style is something worth working into your wardrobe this year, and Vans’ Torrey jacket is a great way to start or complete the modern skater look.

4. Vans Gc Stripe Short Sleeve Shirt

Pinstripe is another low-key pattern trend we’ve started to see in the past few months. This short sleeve shirt captures the 50s vibes, and incorporates them into an everyday shirt.

5. Vans Wayland II Shirt

A comfy flannel like this is great for summer nights, and will make a powerful layering tool in the cold months.

6. Vans Authentic Stretch Chino

These asphalt stretch chinos are a modern rendition of the classic California look. They feature a slim fit, polyester-elastane cotton blend, and tonal stitching. Wear them with a white T and slip-on Vans this summer, or a statement jacket and boots this fall.
