You're jealous of their weather, their skin-care routines and their collection of vintage Chanel bags. There's a reason Los Angeles is quickly becoming less synonymous with Hollywood and more commonly known as Blogger Capital of the World. Let's take a look at what exactly makes SoCal ladies so damn chic--and what you can do to be like them.

Dress Up Your Denim

Cliché but true: Angelenos know their way around a good pair of jeans. But the style-conscious would never consider this the lazy option. It's simply a base for feminine blouses and statement accessories.

Know The Importance of Layering

L.A. ladies are at the mercy of sunny afternoons and chilly desert evenings, so they always have a strong jacket at the ready. But beyond just the outwear, think about inventive ways to spice up other aspects of your outfit--like tossing a sack dress over a collared shirt.

Pay Attention to Silhouettes

It may come as no surprise, but Hollywood is a highly visual town. And details matter--like the current cuts and shapes of trending clothes. For instance, this season: Tapered pants should hit right above the ankle and denim jackets should hit right below the hip.

Then Become Best Friends with Your Tailor

Beyond just trendy silhouettes, L.A. women also care about the fit of a garment on their actual frame. If your favorite cocktail dress needs a little nip and tuck up top, it's worth the investment. Think of all the photos...

When in Doubt, Give It a Half Tuck

SoCal is laid-back, yes, but also deeply professional. If you're feeling slightly frumpy in your menswear-inspired office outfit, do as the Angelenos do and roll your sleeves and tuck in your shirt. You'll look stylish without trying too hard.

Make a Statement with Your Accessories

If you haven't noticed by now, West Coast women are big into the extras. They best show them off by keeping their base outfit streamlined and letting the bold piece steal the show.

But Know When It’s Best to Just Go Minimalist

All that said, every outfit doesn't necessarily have to have a standout item. Sometimes a breezy white dress says enough.

Above All, Don’t Be Too Precious

In the true spirit of SoCal, don't actually take anything we say too seriously. If you want to wear a bandana around your neck, go all out. If you think that's hokey and lame, skip it. Just whatever you do, own it.
