If you live in Los Angeles, you know that most articles about how to dress for winter aren't applicable to you—the weather is never cold enough to need a sumptuous coat or cozy shearling jacket. So what does the season really look like in sunny L.A.? Allow Vanessa Hudgens and Taylor Swift to fill you in on a little secret: West Coast girls are all about cropped sweaters with oversize sleeves, pieces they often pair with high-waisted pants. It's the perfect compromise: A cropped knit guards against slightly chilly temps when the weather doesn't necessitate a full-on sweater.
Hudgens and Swift also happen to exemplify the best ways to wear the outfit formula for both day and night. The former opted for a cheery yellow hue and white pants, which was the ideal look for a coffee run. Swift, on the other hand, made her cropped sweater work for nighttime by pairing it with sleek, all-black pieces. Genius!
