4 Latest Fashion Trends in LA

Let's face it. For those of us who live in SoCal, we have it pretty good. By good I mean we have the "perfect" weather and experience multiple summers in a year (yup, I declare myself spoiled!). When it comes to styling, our closets are never complicated, given that we only store summer outfits and light jackets! Just kidding. But you get the point. It's hot here and we don't wear too many layers.

One thing I love about LA is the reputation for casual streetwear. Speaking from a millennial's perspective, making everyday fashion less basic and more creative is a skill necessary to fashionistas here. Whether it's finding a new print we crave or bringing back an older style, these are some of the latest fashion trends I discovered in LA.

Trend #1: Palm-print fashion

(ie. workout sets, yoga leggings, bikinis, swimwear)

Swatch: Skinciel Watch 2017

Embrace #YourMovement

Swatch recently debuted a new watch line called SKIN. It features sleek and smooth watches in a variety of colors. Known for its innovative design from Switzerland, Swatch brought a new wave of style with these simple yet beautiful everyday pieces.

Lightweight and comfortable around your wrist, the Skinciel watch is created with a slim silicone band and a high-quality plastic case. Compared to their classic models, the SKIN watches are especially smooth and ultra-thin - ones that truly feel like second skin!

As soon as I put my Skinciel on, I forget about it. It never irritates my wrist and always remains comfortable all day long. You could work out, run errands and sleep while wearing it throughout the day. The simplicity of the design makes it easier to style with any outfit. Especially with the Skinciel's soft blue tone, it is the perfect color for the summer. Additionally, SKIN watches can be unisex with colors and features that stand out to everyone. 

More details of the Skinciel:

Exhibiting a low-profile ultra-thin Swatch case construction, the silver-colored sun-brushed dial features a light blue and white print index. Its 36.8mm double-injection case is split along a curving line composed of a shiny light blue front and shiny white plastic back. The look comes together with a matte light blue silicone strap, white silicone loop and shiny light blue plastic buckle.

Look Smarter, Instantly

Growing up with horrible, I mean, horrible eye sight, I dreaded wearing glasses. They're uncomfortable and I spend half my day pushing them up from my nose bridge. Plus, getting made fun of at school for being "four-eyes" puts the cherry on top. But ugh, seriously? The day my mom got me contacts, I (almost) never wore glasses in public again.

Fast forward to 2017, glasses became a fashion trend and they are more than a necessity for your eyes. Embracing all the fun shapes and sizes created for eyewear, I enjoy fashionable glasses way more and love adding it as a final touch to my look. AND - one way to look smarter? Wear glasses!😎 Bringing me to the main focus of today's post.... introducing 2 favorite pairs that make you look smarter, instantly:

The Scientist Look
Oversized frames that not only make your face smaller but your eyes bigger - now that's magic right there. You could literally pull off any look with these. They're sassy, bossy and definitely smart-assy. I'd do anything to replace these with my actual frames. Step up these oversized babies with a sleeveless top and a pair of dark-wash denim for a sophisticated vibe. Shop: http://rstyle.me/~a496r

The Retro Look
MVMT, a fast-growing lifestyle brand, released a collection featuring stylish glasses that went along with their watches. Thanks to MVMT, I got myself a pair of the Icon Clear glasses and the Sunset watch.

Love vintage vibes and I absolutely adore the retro round shape of Icon Clear. The slim frame makes the glasses look extra sleek. The Sunset watch is created with a rose-gold strap and an iridescent crystal case. These retro frames were styled with a maxi dress and an asymmetrical blouse. Dress up or down with these glasses and you still look super smart wherever you go! Shop: http://rstyle.me/~a49aL
