Over a recent weekend, I decided to take a little break from shopping and do a bit of people watching at The Grove (an outdoor mall here in Los Angeles). While I was sitting in the middle of the shopping center (eating a soft pretzel, FYI), I began to notice a pattern among the coolest shoppers’ outfits. It seemed every single girl (I’m talking seven in the scope of about 20 minutes) stuck to one outfit formula: a white or black tee/blouse, denim shorts or a miniskirt, and either sneakers or black ankle boots—essentially the perfectly cool L.A. uniform. After researching some of our favorite California-based celebs, bloggers, and influencers, I quickly realized that yes, this is the ensemble all the L.A. girls wear. And to be honest, this look works for every type of person—no matter where you’re from. It’s easy, chill, stylish, and perfect for summer.
Keep scrolling to check out how all the L.A. girls wear this uniform. Plus, go a bit further to shop the go-to outfit too.
