One thing I really love about LA, is that people here have the casual-formal balance mastered. There is truly an art to styling an outfit that is both casual, and put together, at the same time. Something that you can wear to a work meeting, to shopping, or for sauntering around in West Hollywood grabbing a coffee. I’ve had my eye on this statement striped skirt from Avenue 32 for a while now, I’m just in love with the luxurious structured fabric and dramatic print, plus the color palette is perfect for both summer and fall. I love that I could wear it with a bustier top and stilettos to an elegant event, but it looks just as cool with this cropped tee and flat slingbacks.
My advice on dressing like an LA girl? Mix formal fabrics with casual pieces; style a dressed up item with a flat shoe, or even try a little patchwork loose denim with a tall heel.. you get the idea! It’s all about mixing opposing vibes together in unexpected ways. Even these earrings are mix-matched! How cool are they?
