Whether I'm grabbing my morning iced latte, going for alfresco brunch on the weekends, taking a walk down Melrose Place on my lunch break, or indulging in guac and margaritas after work, there are certain fashion items (often from
Reformation) that I see women wearing almost every day in Los Angeles no matter where my route takes me. And yes, while it may seem like in today's world we're all drinking the same Instagram Kool-Aid, there are certainly some sartorial nuances that seem so innately Angeleno that you'll be hard-pressed not to notice these pieces on fashion girls everywhere from Venice to Silver Lake. Keep scrolling to see the seven items we're seeing all over L.A. Whether tucked into high-waisted denim shorts or worn with a leopard-print midi skirt, a (preferably vintage) graphic tee is a cool-girl favorite in L.A. Don't forget to layer on plenty of gold necklaces to complete your L.A. lewk. Available in sizes XS to L. Available in sizes S to XL. Available in sizes XS to L. Available in sizes XS to L. If you live in L.A., it's practically a prerequisite to own a Reformation dress. From a ditsy floral-print minidress (paired with white sneakers or flat sandals on the weekend) to a midi wrap dress (your go-to for every special occasion) or its much-loved sweetheart neckline (the perfect silhouette to top up your tan), consider the Ref dress a must-have in your L.A. closet. Available in sizes 0 to 12. Available in sizes XS to XL. Available in sizes XS to XL. Available in sizes XS to XL. No one dares to leave the house without their shades in L.A., and the silhouette of choice among fashion girls? Cat-eye frames, of course. I'd say 99.9% of our office owns a pair, and the trend has no signs of slowing down. What is dominating L.A.'s accessory scene? Generous helpings of layered gold necklaces is the answer. Mismatch your pendants, chains, seashell strands, lockets, and monogrammed necklaces over a T-shirt or camisole for a statement look. Sure, the sunny sartorial set loves their white sneakers and strappy sandals, but ankle boots have a perennial presence year-round in L.A. A Western-style boot is particularly popular right now and will be present throughout fall. Available in sizes 6 to 10. Available in sizes 4 to 11. Available in sizes 4 to 11. Available in sizes 5 to 10. Available in sizes 4.5 to 11.5. Angelenos cannot get enough of their high-waisted denim.

Available in sizes 24 to 32. Available in sizes 24 to 30. Straw and woven bags in all shapes and sizes have been taking over the city for some time.
