Street Style: Los Angeles (La Brea)

Los Angeles StyleThough the sun would beg to differ, nothing is cooler than summer in Los Angeles.  In the city of the stars, our customers are stepping out into the streets of Los Angeles looking as if they were celebrities themselves.  Fashion knows no boundaries in our city, and our customers have taken a liking to two particular trends: print mixing and the continuously popular neon brights.

Often in bright greens, pinks, or oranges, these ladies pair their eye-catching tops with basic denim pants in light to dark washes or with a black skinny. We’ve even seen it paired with a trouser, which suggests a great transition into the fall.  We can see it now: a bright colored top, a long black trouser, a skinny belt, and throw in a waist length cape that can offer an easy solution to strange weather changes.  We’ve also noticed the neon trend being utilized in conjunction with the mixed pattern trend.
