Pieces Every L.A. Woman Has in Her Closet (or Needs To)

Contrary to what most L.A. fashion stories would have you believe, this isn’t just a town of premium Japanese-rinsed Eastern European riveted denim. Nope, we have a casual-cool style all our own, and it starts with these seven pieces. Get them and you’ll be getting dressed better and faster in the a.m.

1

WHITE JEANS

We wear them year-round, for every occasion. Except maybe not to a wedding (or at least not our own).

2

BACKLESS LOAFERS

They’re business in the front, party in the back. And they sleek everything up—from dresses to denim—without the blisters

3

LEGGINGS

Maybe they’re patterned; maybe they’re basic black. But the L.A. woman knows when she’s got nothing to wear, she can depend on that one pair of stretch pants that makes her butt look good.

4

GYPSY DRESS

In flowy silk or gauze, just at the knee or grazing the floor, this soft style is the West Coast woman’s way of sexy dressing up without looking too stiff or formal.

5

FLOPPY HAT

A felt one for fall/winter looks groovy and a star one for spring/summer reads “beachy.” There, now you’re looking fly and avoiding sun damage.

6

FURRY BOOTS

Because you try showing your film at Sundance or après-skiing in Sun Valley in those unlined short boots you’re always seeing in magazines. (Note: With tucked-in leggings or jeans, they’re actually the new Western classic look.)
