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.
