Score This Perfect Cozy Outfit

The West Coast may not be known for our seasons but we're definitely getting our cool weather closets going thanks to the crispy November chill that's in the air. Of course, we're adjusting our winter wardrobes accordingly and adding some necessities like scarves, cozy cardis, and loads of layers. So when we saw this lovely L.A. lass outside of the Row sample sale in Culver City last week, showing off an enviable ensemble of an forest green cardigan, skinny mid-blue jeans, and a little leopard accessories, we knew we had yet another perfect outfit on our hands. So make sure you pick up all of her Cali winter essentials, because you'll want to copy this look anytime the temperature dips this week.
Essential #1: Skinny jeans—A classic pair of denims that fit your derrier to perfection can go a long way when it comes to daily wear or a night out. One in a no-fuss, non-processed raw blue is best.
MiH Breathless Jeans in Honeyboy, $232, available at Barney's CO-OP, The Grove Drive (at 3rd Street); 323-761-5255.
Essential #2: Leather belt—This universal staple is a double-whammy: not only does it hold up your jeans, but also it's also timeless and a classic you'll wear almost every day. Wear it with your blues, or cinch it around a vintage dress—trust, this simple leather belt is your best friend.
Boyfriend belt $34.50, available at The Gap, 370 N Beverly Drive (at Brighton Way); 310-274-0461.
Essential #3: Knitted cardigan—This cropped variation on the traditional grandpa sweater is perfect for a low-key L.A. winter. Wear this hunter green style under and over everything all November long.
Silence & Noise open cardigan, $29, available at Urban Outfitters, 1520 North Cahuenga Boulevard (at Sunset Boulevard); 323-465-1893.
Essential #4: Fringed scarf—We feel like we're in the middle of a city that gets a more intense winter winter whenever we wrap a scarf around our necks. As L.A. winters go, it's probably best to go with something lightweight—the sun'll come out eventually.
T by Alexander Wang fringe scarf, $89, available at Satine Boutique, 8134 W 3rd Street (at Crescent Heights Avenue); 323-655-2142.
Essential #5: Leopard flats—Our favorite part of this whole look is this statement-making and well-priced pair of leopard print flats. We all know that animal prints are always in style, but the way it is unexpectedly paired with a basic outfit makes it so chic.
K ate Spade Frisky calf hair ballerina flat, $185, available at Neiman Marcus, 9700 Wilshire Boulevard (at South Roxbury Drive); 310-550-5900.
