Every September, women across L.A. are stricken with the same dilemma: We’re beyond sick of our cutoffs and crop tops, but the mercury’s still too high to even think
about putting on sweaters and boots (even in an air-conditioned dressing room).
But since prime fall shopping season is, well, right this second
, we’ve called in the pros for a jolt of sartorial inspiration. Some of L.A.’s best dressed designers, bloggers, and shop gals — whose autumn wardrobes have been meticulously planned since Fashion Month ended last March — have clued us in on their shopping lists, all of which are sure to trigger a little spark of retail lust in even the most die-hard summer girls.
There are also some seriously valuable tips to be gleaned from this stylish set. According to them, turtlenecks are back and sexier than ever, as are old-school Adidas kicks that take one top tastemaker back to her junior high days. Oversized pants, undersized handbags, and just-right red lips are also finding favor with our eclectic crew.
Feeling autumnal yet? If not, grab an iced PSL
, conjure up the smell of crispy fall leaves and bonfires, and prepare to be schooled on the art of cool-weather dressing.
