Happy Tuesday! We’re off to another week of stylish What to Wear inspirations and this time the request is for a fashionista who’s heading to the West Coast to celebrate the big 3-0.
Natasha writes, “Hi, I’m going to LA for the very first time with my girlfriends for my bday in a month. I’ll be turning 30. I’m assuming the weather will be pretty nice and I’m already starting to plan outfits. However, I really don’t know where to start. I need your help! We’ll be shopping, dining, and going out for drinks. Got any ideas?”
When it comes to fashion, LA is a lot more laid back than people think. Unless it’s some type of event, a simple pair of jeans, a comfy tee, and a stylish heel or even a pair of sandals will go a long way. But seeing as how it is your birthday, I’m sure you’re looking to spruce up your wardrobe just a tad. So I’ve come up with a few ideas to get you going for your girls’ trip.
Exude California cool with a pair of destroyed boyfriend jeans and a slouchy white top.
Jazz up this effortless ensemble with a leather jacket, a strappy sandal, and a studded cut out clutch bag. A spiked gold necklace and Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses add the finishing touches to this shopping day look.
One of my favorite pieces to pull out during the winter months is a fur vest. Living in LA you never really need a full-on fur piece, so a stylish faux fur number will do the trick to chic up your winter look.
Grab a few drinks in a white blouse with a fur vest, suede and leather skinny pants, and a sky scraping platform pump. A leather shoulder bag and jeweled hoop earrings complete this fun and flirty fit.
And for a grown and sexy nightlife and birthday dinner look, give a strapless black jumpsuit a little life with a pair of Ruthie Davis pumps and a red and black Judith Leiber couture Whitman anaconda clutch bag.
A white tuxedo blazer, gold tassel hoop earrings, and a popping red lip bring the look together.
And for safety precautions in the event the weather does drop to cooler temps, make sure to pack a chunky knit sweater or two, a stylish snood, and a dashing ankle boot and you’ll be good to go.
Wishing you a happy birthday and a fabulous time in LA!
