Because the seaside towns of Southern California are impossibly haute, that also means that beachside shopping is no longer all about flip-flops and sundresses.

Here are some of the hautest boutiques in SoCal from Laguna to Venice Beach, of which has the ‘chicest street for shopping in America’ in its Abbott Kinney Boulevard, according to GQ magazine.
