While fair-weather street-style seekers tend to retreat to the comfort of the AC unit around this time of year, we're bringing the heat! Truth be told, we're so dedicated to the search that we've been known to bust an illegal U-turn just to catch a killer look. Yeah, we're not messing around, here.
Obviously, we don't want you to attempt these daredevil driving stunts, so we're unearthing the most winning sidewalk gems for you. And there's no place in L.A. that delivers more choice outfit inspo than the local flea markets. (Bonus: The car remains parked.) So, we hit up the Melrose Trading Post and the Long Beach Antique Market for a double dose of summer-dressing motivation. Peep the style from the two spots and let us know which vintage venue has your vote for Best Dressed.
