For all of us dwelling right here in sunny Southern California, placing collectively a search for a median winter day requires a complete lot of forethought. Issues can go from 88º and sunny to 48º and overcast within the time it takes to stroll house from dinner, and that is earlier than factoring within the mighty marine layer that hangs over virtually all the Westside. We might not want weatherproof items fairly like my fellow editors in NYC and London, however you will by no means spot us stepping exterior with out some strategic (and trendy) layering.
Since I have been getting a bit of bored of the standby staples which have made far too many appearances in my feed to this point this winter, I have been turning to my Who What Put on colleagues for divine inspiration. There's one individual, particularly, with a notoriously robust layering sport, and that is my good friend and our senior graphic designer, Natalia Styzk. She generously provided to share the 2 key seems to be she's sporting throughout L.A. this season, care of the model behind so many L.A. favorites: Free People. Learn on to see how she's styling cozy puffers, western boots, the ultimate '90s jeans, and a lot extra.
Like I stated, whether or not you are exploring the Venice flea market on a Sunday morning or commuting to work in Downtown Los Angeles, you have to be ready. I am loving the lengthy black and white layers Natalia has paired collectively, and I simply may need the quilted maxi puffer in my cart as we converse. The size, the colour, the load—it is no marvel that it is considered one of Free Folks's hottest objects. It is easy to throw on over a cute costume (see above), but it surely's additionally the right method to spruce up any fundamental jeans-and-sweater look. What I am making an attempt to say is, it is a winter important.
There is no off-duty outfit extra quintessentially L.A. than a white base layer and a few relaxed, vintage-inspired jeans, and I’m particularly enamored with Natalia's impressed winter-ready additions. The oversize cardigan and knit scarf (dare I say blanket?) are giving off ultra-cozy vibes, and the western-inspired boots take the entire look to fashionable new heights. IMO, including cowboy boots to any 'match makes it really feel that a lot cooler. I do not assume there's something that screams "style individual" louder than cowboy boots.
