L.A. does a lot of things differently than the rest of the country, but nothing is as distinctive as the way we dress for winter. It doesn't make sense to invest in sherpa-lined boots, insulated coats, or mittens because our weather rarely escalates past mildly chilly temperatures. That said, you do need to have some essential Los Angeles winter fashion trends on hand, including turtlenecks, sweatshirts, boots, jackets, and more.
Who better to offer winter outfit advice than six impeccably dressed local Instagram girls? Gabi Gregg, for instance, showed off the perfect L.A. way to dress for a holiday party, while Fong Min Liao offered up the ideal winter coat combo. Scroll down to see how six locals dress for L.A. winters and shop similar pieces for sub-60-degree days on the horizon.
