6 Fall Trends You Can Actually Wear in L.A.
Sometimes fall fashion doesn’t translate to Los Angeles weather. But these are the easiest of the new trends to wear (big trenches, yes please), and there’s nothing body-con in here anywhere (track pants = big lunch without worry). But comfort aside, these casual-cool styles still exude sexiness, from the bare shoulder of a statement blouse to the femme-goth style of a moody floral dress. Check out what the cool girls will be easing into as soon as they can.
Men’s Tailored Blazer
So much to love: It’s broad-shouldered, long, more than a little ’80s and—itchiness averted!—it’s mostly poly instead of wool. Snuggle it on over a silk dress now, wear it with wide-leg trousers later and use as your new jeans topper through winter.
Embellished Skate Shoes
This tickles our SoCal sweet spot—athletic slip-ons have gotten all embroidered and shiny without losing their casual cool. While the weather’s still hot we’ll sport them with sundresses and shorts, then pair them with tights and denim skirts when the seasons turn.
Moody Floral Dress
Romantic, flowy and not at all saccharin, this fall’s flowered prints come with a dark background that’s accented by muted brights instead of springtime pastels. So nothing’s too loud—just pretty. Amp up the modernity of the look by wearing it with a short boot.
The latest trench coats are perfect for a mild climate, since they are loose enough to keep you sweat-free while you stride about town with the fabric dramatically flapping behind you. (That's mainly why you're wearing one, right?)
It’s that one fresh silhouette that’s going to turn every head in the restaurant when you sweep in 30 minutes late and everyone’s already into their appetizers. All is forgiven—you class up the table up with your sexy shoulder. (When it gets chilly, fear not. You can just toss your oversize blazer over your shoulders.)
