The Cali Girl

Having just had a week in LA assisting styling on an amazing project, street stalk all the latest trends hitting the streets of LA.

An obvious trend in Cali is their love for denim. Skirts, shorts, jeans, you name it and they probably have it in their wardrobe. I love the carefree styling LA brings, so effortless and chic in everything they do.

 A few labels that come to mind when I think of LA are:

  •  Free People
  •  Anine Bing
  •  Vetements - especially for their denim
  •  The Kooples - for that rocker chick inside you
  •  Acne - for their boots
  •  American Apparel
  •  Rachel Zoe
  •  Zagid & Voltaire 

Jeans, white tee and boots or cute flowy sundress are a classic example of the typical Cali girl. By simply adding a leather jacket to the mix, giving it that little bit of attitude, you've got your Friday night look done and dusted.

My favourite place for such pieces is Anine Bing. She does great staples for any occasion and has the best leather jacket range around. Other options are also the various vintage shops along Melrose Drive, where you're sure to find a fashionable treat.

A new trend to hit the streets not just in LA but also New York is the oriental bomber jacket. 

I found a great high street version from a on Fairfax called Dope. It definitely draws inspiration from the runway pieces without the crazy price tag on the side of course. This bomber would definitely give your outfit that extra swag.

 Overall LA fashion is great for keeping to the basics (simple tee, jeans etc) with their added touches of attitude here and there through biker boots or leather jackets. So if in doubt stick to the classics and you'll never go wrong.

Can’t wait to go back.
