LA STYLE GUIDE

Heading to LA this year to avoid the cold Aussie Winter?? We got you covered.

So you’ve booked you’re ticket, hotel and planned all of the fabulous places places you will visit. Now, it’s time to pack.

The packing struggle is real ladies! From what to wear on the plane, how you are going to exit the airport terminal and arriving looking fresh at your hotel. We all have a vision, so let’s make it happen. You can write list after list of this stuff and still not have what you need once you arrive.

Don’t fret, help is at hand. Fortunately for you, we are experienced at traveling so can tell exactly what you will require to look super cool and fit in like a local while you shop up a storm and party the night away.

It should come as no surprise to you that, well, denim is in. Groundbreaking really! You must have the correct denim pieces and know exactly what to team with them. Here’s a tip, the more effortless you look, the better!

1

THE RIPPED JEAN

Nothing says LA cool quite like ripped denim. If you live in Sydney, it is likely you already have at least one pair of these to your name. If not, run and get a pair! Dress them up or down, they will be one of your more versatile pieces while hitting the streets of Hollywood.

THE DRESS PIECE

You never know what party you might just get a bait to while mingling the LA crew SO, it is essential to have something a little more dressy up your sleeve. White and flowy fits the bill in this town, you have the option to dress it up with heels and statement jewels or dress it down with a denim jacket and flats. This Sass & Bide number has the perfect amount of structure and etherial flow.

THE CHAMBRAY SHIRT

Denim on denim, can’t go wrong. Tuck it into a tighter fitting pant for a more put-together look for lunch and dinner, or loosely tuck into the front of your denim cut-offs for a super casual laid back look. I have a collection of various styles and colours and can 100% tell you that you do not need to spend a lot of money.

THE TRAINER

We can’t travel anywhere without an off-duty kick, and LA is no exception. Great for the plane and taking you around a city, an on-trend trainer is a must-pack item. LOVE these New Balance in navy as the pair perfectly with denim and will hide the wear and tear.

THE SHADES

Our obsession is deep and real over these new shades from Christian Dior. Ummm…how can you not want them? The perfect ‘shade’ of white & gold for LA, just imagine the selfies in these babies. You will need to head into a Dior boutique to find a pair.
