Heading to L.A. the city of dreams soon? Fashion blogger and photographer Garance Dore, says “When you’re in L.A. you can forget who you are and take part in the American Dream”, and I couldn’t agree more. L.A. instantly transports you into a cool, West Coast kind of fantasy land. Wondering what to pack for this dream of an adventure? Keep it California casual.
The rule of thumb while packing for L.A. is to rely on laid back essentials. A pair of flattering jeans (light-wash if you want to amp up the cool), your go-to white button up or blouse, and an LBD (little black dress) will ensure you achieve that effortless cool style. Play with your accessories and have fun dressing up your outfits with gold accessories or fun costume jewelry. For footwear, pack a pair of comfortable sandals for your daytime walking and a pair of pumps for a night on the town. A medium to large structured bag will help you easily transition from the airport, to your daytime activities, and then to dinner.
Here are my picks for what to pack for L.A. and if you need more inspiration check out my pinterest board or my previous Los Angeles blog post and read up on the must-see attractions L.A. has to offer.
Don’t forget your Sleeper Scarf and largest paparazzi-avoiding sunglasses!
