Between Topanga Canyon and the surge in rural cuisine (à la Mess Hall in Silver Lake), there's no denying that SoCal takes on a real rustic vibe come fall. And one of our fave autumn activities is actually dressing the part in seasonally appropriate garb. We can't think of a chicer way to welcome the crisp, desert chill than a Southwestern-inspired wardrobe, filled with sandy hues and Pendleton prints. Because, as everyone knows, hot cocoa always tastes better when paired with a cozy fringed poncho.
Whether you have your sights on Santa Fe or the fire pit at your fave local resto, we've wrangled up 25 items that are perfect for the plains, but are anything but dull. Westward, ho!
