Sure, it’s a scorching 83 degrees here in Los Angeles, but those of us sweating it out here at Who What Wear headquarters in West Hollywood aren’t going to let a little heat get in the way of discussing one of our favorite topics: fall trends. (ICYMI, here’s our breakdown of the biggest fall color trends, our coverage on controversial fall shoe trends insiders are already wearing, and our guide to the hottest fall fashion trends so good even French girls are buying into them.)
Although we’ve already spilled a lot of ink forecasting autumnal trends, we couldn’t resist reaching out to Los Angeles-based designers to gain intel on the topic directly from the pros. From puff sleeves and palazzo pants to rust tones and checkered prints, there’s a lot to look forward to in the coming months, sartorially speaking. So hold onto your wallet—ahead, Los Angeles-based designers weigh in on the biggest fall trends L.A. girls are going to buy into this season.
