West Coast style
Each of the city’s neighborhoods has its own distinct style, but no matter where you are, the weather is warm and the sun shines brightly. Look for local designers who are tuned into the city’s laid-back yet glamorous style. Breezy pieces, like a ruffled, lace dress from stylist-turned-designer Rachel Zoe or a chambray shirt from sustainably made brand Outerknown, are ideal for shopping around town, while a printed swimsuit from Marysia is perfect for the beach. Top off any look with a pair of Oliver Peoples sunglasses. There is also exquisite craftsmanship in the city. George Esquivel handcrafts every pair of shoes in his atelier in Orange County, and he also makes custom pieces. Vram designs and creates sensational jewelry; we love these gorgeous yellow-gold and diamond hoop earrings.
