The 7 L.A. Brands I Always Get Compliments On

Over my six-plus years at Who What Wear, I’ve shared nearly every aspect of my wardrobe, from the lingerie trend that weirdly makes me happier to how I make fast-fashion finds from places like Forever 21 look expensive. I’ve also listed the Midwest trends I’d still wear as well as the pieces I’d prefer to leave in the past. Today, I’m adding to the list and sharing the brands I wear on repeat since moving to the City of Angels. There's a mix of new and old-school fashion brands, but they all have one thing in common: They are all based out of Los Angeles.

I thought this would be a fun way to pay tribute to my favorite L.A.-based lines and also share some of the outfits and pieces I wear and receive the most compliments on. From an eyewear line located in the heart of Venice that makes the coolest frames (at a great price, might I add) to an eco-focused brand that never fails when it comes to designing the most flattering dresses, these are a few of the Los Angeles clothing brands you can find in my closet. Read on to see how I wear the pieces and to learn a little more about each line and shop the newest pieces from the West Coast brands.
