Nothing makes getting ready in the morning easier than having an arsenal of go-to outfits to fall back on. Whether it's a classic dress-and-shoe combo, ideas for styling tricky pieces like Bermuda shorts, or a sweatpants look that is anything but boring, we could all use some more outfit ideas to mix things up. That's why we're looking to eight of our favorite L.A.-based fashion people to inspire with chic looks that, simply put, work every time.

Each inspiring fashion person has a unique look yet they've all figured out the formula for acing the very best California-cool fashion—and now you can too.
Here, see and shop the looks for yourself, and don't forget to save your favorites for the next time you're looking for some fresh inspiration.
Wrap Dress + Heels + Earrings
This easy outfit formula works year after year. One thing I love about wrap dresses is how easy they are to dress up or dress down, simply by pairing on with a simple sandal or pair of strappy heels.
Everyone needs an arsenal of wrap dresses in their wardrobe.

Ribbed Top + Bermuda Shorts + Loafers
Bermuda shorts have been going strong, and this is exactly how to pull off the tricky trend. This outfit is the perfect polished look to wear right now and then later this fall by adding boots and a blazer.
A skirt-and-sandals combo is a go-to weekend look. What's especially cool about this outfit is the mix of fun colors and textures.

Tee + Trousers + Flats
A tee with trousers is the ultimate versatile look that can be dressed either up or down. Bonus points for swapping in bold shades instead of neutrals.

Satin Top + Sweatpants + Tube Socks
The ensemble that's the closest thing you'll get to feeling like you're wearing pajamas. Sure, you could stick with a matching sweatpant set, but I love the idea of adding in a satin top instead of a hoodie.
Perfect for wearing at home.
Oversize Tee + Jeans + Loafers
Jeans and a tee never fail—especially when you have a cool pair of loafers to finish the look. I've found that a light-wash like these have major staying power in my closet.
Embrace the bike-shorts trend with a tank top and sunglasses for both comfort and polish. If you want to dress this up, simply add a boxy blazer and boots.
Take a break from your all-black basics.
These are seriously versatile.

Tee + Trousers + Heels
Tailored trousers and heels always add an extra element of polish to your basic tee. Think of this as an easy alternative to your go-to jeans look.
