Welcome to Weekday Wardrobe, a series in which one Who What Wear editor or staffer will snap a pic of their 9-to-5 look each day and break down where you can shop it all to inspire your own everyday style.
I’m that person who has a closet full of clothes but always just re-wears the same outfits over and over again. At this point, whenever I get online to shop, I know to go straight to the pieces that fit the same vibe as my go-to’s because that’s all I’m likely to put to use. Right now, it’s “winter” in Los Angeles (as in, sometimes it gets below 65°) so my tall boots, cardigans, long-sleeve midi dresses, and sweats are really getting their moment to shine in my rotation. Looking for some super-chic but extremely easy-to-put-together looks that, IMO, never get old? I got you. Keep scrolling for my laid-back California ‘fits that, like me, you’ll want to wear on repeat.
This blazer just does it for me, and for a lot of fashion girls (peep my co-worker Michaela rocking the same one) for that matter. When it comes to L.A. dressing, I usually layer it over a sleeveless turtleneck tank so I don’t get too hot. For a fancier day, I could pair this with tailored trousers and heels, but on this occasion, I wanted to keep it a bit more casual and hop in my favorite straight-leg jeans and my new western booties.
I can’t even count on two hands the number of midi dresses I own. They’re the easiest piece of clothing to style, as they require zero other garments. The puff-sleeves on this one make me feel way chicer without even trying. Today, I opted for knee-highs, but sneakers or sandals in the summer are always contenders as well. And although I’m not necessarily going anywhere, I thought this way-more-expensive-than-it-looks maroon purse just really needed to come out.
I think I’ve said this perhaps a million times, but I will say it again: I love neutrals. I think they’re truly so easy to pair together because nothing is really off-limits. They all work! I’m very into this combo right here because both fabrics are just thick enough for a crisp morning but won’t make me overheat as the day warms up.
Whether it’s January or June, this is the outfit people probably see me in the most. I have several black and white tanks and tees that get put on rotation throughout the year and don’t even get me started on my collection of jeans. This season, I’ve been very into the wide-leg fit as it’s a sneaky way to feel like you’re wearing PJs, without looking like it. Throw on some sunnies, a black shoulder bag, and boots, and you are instantly ready for anything. (In this case, a trip to the farmer’s market.)
A matching set, especially in 2020, is a must-have for any L.A. girl’s closet. I usually end the week in one because let’s be honest: I’m just over it by Friday. I’m usually working in bed for most of the day with my coffee and croissant (Friday is a treat yourself kind of day, you know?), so anything sans buttons is just really nice. I’m obsessed with this particular set because not only is it comfy for lounging around, but it’s 100% acceptable to wear out and about.
