Last time we checked, there was no dress code for trekking the SoCal trails. But, leave it to L.A.'s own Cynthia Vincent to have us considering caftans for our next hike up Elysian Park. The designer's spring '13 lookbook is a perfect melody of rustic influences and boho staples. Think floor-grazing maxis (the more dust coating the bottom, the better!) in earthy shades and fringed separates, ideal for those long-winded walks that turn into strolls at dusk.
Of course, we don't encourage you to trade in your go-to gear for fancy frocks — that would be terribly impractical! Rather, next time you hit up, say, MessHall, channel your inner outdoors(wo)man and get inspired by the nearby Griffith Park in a breezy number that would make Mother Nature proud.
Whether you're an amateur or an ace hiker, every Angeleno could use a little more canyon-chic in their wardrobe! We picked our 10 fave pieces from the new collection that we'd love to pack for our next adventure — go on, take a peek.
