California Cool1 of 12
While L.A. has a rep for catering to more casual dressing, it isn't all denim and tanks. We've found 12 Angelenos who've taken California favorites like nautical stripes and frothy scarves and added their own playful spins on these breezy trends. –Zoe Schaeffer
A menswear element like an oversize blazer adds edge to a feminine blouse and skinny jeans. Stray from the usual gray hue and opt for a bold striped or printed version.
Layer Cake2 of 12
Layering is still chic when proportions are in check. Make sure the outermost piece hits the waist to prevent it from looking sloppy.
Wild Thing3 of 12
Animal prints are the latest "new neutral," so what better way to wear them than with stripes (last year's "new neutral")? When teamed with easy wedges and classic shades, the two patterns feel harmonious, especially as the weather heats up.
Purple Reign4 of 12
Colored denim first made a splash in red and yellow, and purple is the latest shade to join the jean brigade. When matched with neutrals, this plum-perfect hue makes just the right amount of a statement.
Maxed Out5 of 12
Maxi-skirts are the new means of going day to night. Scruffed-up boots add a touch of toughness to a dressed-down day look.
Wrap Party6 of 12
The oversize scarf trend originated with the '90s pashmina, and it shows no signs of slowing down. A sheer, supersize printed version keeps the look fresh.
Code Red7 of 12
Try spring's red-all-over trend in a pair of flattering jeans. Top them off with a fun, printed crewneck sweater for a playful errands-to-drinks outfit.
Blanket Statement8 of 12
A blanket-style coat can be tricky to tackle if it's too bulky. Choose a version that shows your legs to avoid looking like you're wearing a duvet.
Shirting the Issue9 of 12
A shirt tied around the waist can add dramatic flair, especially in an animal-printed pattern. Wear it low on the hips to avoid sloppy bunching.
Cross It Out10 of 12
Crossbody bags with chain straps are the newest incarnation of the classic messenger. Layer one over something delicate, like a silky top or a light cashmere cardigan.
Jump Around11 of 12
A floral jumpsuit becomes an easy-to-wear day option when anchored with utilitarian elements like a denim jacket and combat boots.
Clutch Yourself12 of 12
Daytime clutches are one hot ticket, and a supersize version is a practical option for the workweek.
