Here on the West Coast, we’re blessed with a lot of things (health cafés on every corner, proximity to the beach, an overall leisurely approach to work and life). But one thing we can’t lay claim to? Veritable fall weather. The fact that 80-degree days are a reality in October is both a blessing and a curse—on the one hand, the weather is hardly a cause for complaint, but on the other, we rarely get to participate in the kind of typical fall wardrobes that our East Coast friends do.
So actual layering with thick knits and heavy jackets might be out of the question for us L.A. folks, but don’t let that fool you into thinking we aren’t putting our own spin on fall style. As a fashion editor and Angeleno myself, I’m bearing witness to some truly amazing Los Angeles fall fashion trends that are taking over the city right now. From the jean style I’m spotting on all my friends lately to the It print that’s flooding every corner from Melrose Place to Abbot Kinney, I’m sharing eight big trends that are defining the city’s autumnal style. To see each of them in action, keep scrolling, and then shop ways to get the look for yourself (proximity to Los Angeles not necessary).
