Hollywood, Miami, New York, LA Contest Winners

Quiksilver and The Standard challenged the Polyvore community to create sets inspired by one of the 4 Standard locations -- Hollywood, Miami, New York and Downtown LA -- using Quiksilver boardshorts. The result was 762 unique interpretations of these 4 cities.

We're excited to announce the winners of this challenge, as selected by The Standard/Quiksilver team. Congratulations to PaintHead, TheStrawberryFields, Karine Minzon Wilson and pinklipstiiick!

1st: Miami

This set just screams Miami – with cuba libres, classic cars, dancing ladies, and palm trees, the vibe of this set embodies exactly what everyone should feel when wearing The Standard, Miami Quiksilver boardshorts.

2nd: Hollywood

We wear our sunglasses at night for a reason! With so many sequins and stars it’s a Hollywood must and the Standard Hollywood Quiksilver Boardshorts fit right in too.

3rd: Downtown LA

In LA it’s important to work four inch heels, understand the rules of a basketball, and always have a bikini or a pair boardshorts handy for unplanned pool time. This collage represents that fun and spontaneous nature that Los Angeles and The Standard Quiksilver boardshorts represent!

4th: New York

Despite the chaos, New York balances all things cool and this set proves it. Good literature, fierce booties, killer views, and a comfy and yet chic outfit all tied together with a black pair of Standard Quiksilver Boardshorts.

Here's a look at more contest entries:
