There’s a prettier, softer mood in the air from power pastels to summer sequins. Is it too soon to say spring? Well, not quite, yet. As fashion industry leaders abandon winter dress-codes behind, some head to the West Coast for more temperate climates with East Coast temperatures still being chilly. Naturally, New York and Los Angeles have a lot in common, yet, there’s an ongoing rivalry between the two fashion capitals. California’s relaxed lifestyle enlists individuals to make LA style their own. The style is fresh, yet laid-back, with a slight play on sensuality contributing to a feminine edge. Fashion Reverie looks to the trending street styles in Los Angeles and this season is bound to be full of energy, optimism, and bold fashion moments.

Plush Fur
A classic for its practicality, plush fur is a wardrobe staple for all LA natives. A new craze on the runway, designers ditch authenticity for faux fur of different proportions and funky prints.“Outerwear is huge in LA and I would say it is the number one trend. Especially lightweight trench coats; they are a necessity in [West Coast] weather. There’s a lot of blend of fabrications and materials [that designers] are being more experimental with”, said Samuel Taylor, creative director and founder of Silent Panda.

Dominate the graphic stripes trend with a full head-to-toe look, separates with strong lines or colorful silhouettes. “Exaggerated graphic stripes are everywhere,” said Samuel Taylor.
