How One Angeleno Beats L.A. Traffic In Style

When you think of L.A., you picture perfect, 75-degree weather, endless good eats ... and traffic. There is no city with worse traffic than L.A. You could end up sitting on the 405 for two hours to go 10 miles. I kid you not. Day or night, it's inescapable. And so to preserve my long hair by not ripping it out in frustration, let me introduce to you my saving grace: the scooter.

My style preference varies from boho maxis one day to thigh-high slit dresses the next but when I'm riding my scooter, I have a strict aesthetic I follow, and it begins with safety. Biltwell is my helmet of choice mainly because it has a variety of glittery options. Then for bottoms I usually stick to pants that have some stretch or a pair of shorts. I always find myself scooting around in to the night so I make sure to pack a leather jacket.

I ride around on my two-wheeler whenever possible. Whether I’m going on a compulsive shopping spree at The Beverly Center, or indulging in a sugar high at Milk, scooting makes darting through traffic (and finding parking!) that much easier. Having an alternative way of commuting (that allows for cute accessories) helps ease the pain.
