If flowing skirts, comfy leather sandals and floppy sun hats are part of your warm-weather wardrobe, then get ready to shop 'til you drop at Planet Blue.
The Planet Blue brand offers fashionistas a taste of authentic California style. The clothing and accessories at the boutique can be described as boho-chic casual wear inspired by the trends of the Southern California beach scene. This distinct fashion style has been replicated the world over, but Planet Blue is the real thing; the retailer launched its first location in Malibu in 1995.

First-time shoppers at Planet Blue will find a huge selection of sundresses, comfy jumpsuits and rompers, faded jean shorts, tank tops, graphic T-shirts and fashionable swimsuits and beachwear. Planet Blue carries plenty of stylish beach cover-up options, including exotic kaftans, dashikis, maxi dresses and breezy print kimonos.
Like its Southern California counterparts, the Scottsdale retail location carries a mix of well-known brands and independent designers, including Free People, For Love and Lemons, Mara Hoffman, Barefoot Dreams and Vanessa Mooney.
The store is the exclusive carrier of Ale by Alessandra, a clothing line from model and fashion designer Alessandra Ambrosio. Planet Blue also has its own house brands: Blue Life, Blue Life Fit and Blue Life Swim.
Want to add some bohemian flair to your wardrobe? The retailer is known for its eclectic array of unique jewelry pieces, sun hats, beach totes, leather fringe bags, sunglasses, belts, flower crowns and even fun temporary tattoos.
Of course, shoppers will also find plenty of shoes that evoke the laid-back California beach lifestyle, including strappy leather sandals, modish ankle boots, summery espadrilles and casual canvas slip-ons.
Planet Blue curates a popular seasonal Look Book to help inspire fashion-lovers. Whether you're putting together an outfit for the summer music festival season or a drive up the Pacific Coast Highway, the brand offers plenty of style advice to get that free-spirited California look.
The Scottsdale location is the retail chain's ninth location, and its first in Arizona. In California, the retailer has shops in Malibu, Venice, Beverly Hills, Palo Alto and two in Santa Monica (including one location featuring men's fashions exclusively).
Planet Blue also has two retail stores in Japan, and new shops are scheduled to open soon in Miami, Atlanta and Houston.
