In L.A., which is known for its health-conscious residents, staying active is the norm. As such, L.A. girls are experts when it comes to wearing trendy athleisure-inspired outfits. The most popular athleisure piece they wear has to be bike shorts. Not only are they extremely comfortable, but they’re also extremely versatile. Since bike shorts can be paired with almost any top—from sweatshirts and tank tops to button-downs and peasant blouses—L.A. girls wear them to work out, hike, run errands, and even just grab brunch.
L.A. girls give the classic Hawaiian shirt a cool spin with modern prints. They wear them with jeans and sneakers in the winter, midi skirts and Bermuda shorts in the summer and fall, and shorts and miniskirts in the summer. What’s more is button-downs can be tied up to create a cropped look, tucked into high-waisted bottoms, or worn down in the classic breezy style.
Cat-eye sunglasses are still proving popular, but oval shapes have certainly surpassed them among the L.A. fashion crowd. Influencers and celebs wear oval-shaped sunnies all year round here. I like them because they’re flattering to most face shapes, complementary to most outfits, and make me think of Harry Styles, who’s a particularly big proponent of the trend.
Whether it’s leopard, snake, or cow print, L.A. girls love a bold animal print. Incorporate this SoCal-approved trend into your wardrobe with an animal-print midi skirt, denim jacket, or handbag. Depending on the item and the style you choose, you can wear this trend in any season.
This is L.A. we’re talking about, where the sun shines almost every single day of the year (except lately—the June gloom is real). To keep their faces and shoulders protected from the intense sun, L.A. girls love to wear wide-brimmed hats. They work as well at brunch as they do on the beach.
Slip dresses aren’t unique to SoCal, but they’re certainly beloved by Los Angeles It girls. They wear them alone or over a short-sleeve tee when it’s warm, and over long-sleeved tees and sweaters when it gets colder. They prove that this ’90s staple is as stylish and versatile as ever.
