7 L.A. Style Staples I'm Adding to My Nordstrom Cart

If you're looking to get a taste of that cool style every L.A. person seems to have mastered, then there are a handful of key fashion staples you'll want to add to your checklist. Los Angeles style is centered around casual basics and a general approach to getting dressed that's a bit more laid-back than some other fashion capitals. But that doesn't mean it's any less cool—quite the opposite, actually.

Here, I'm taking a look at some of the most stylish people in L.A. and the fashion pieces they can't get enough of, which all happen to be sitting at Nordstrom. From the denim that's winning out to the must-buy shoe styles, there are definitely some key fashion buys you'll spot on the L.A. set. Ahead, see the seven Los Angeles fashion trends from Nordstrom you'll spot in every insider's closet. You'll definitely want to add these cool finds to your cart.

1. Vintage-Wash Jeans



The first thing that comes to your mind when you think about L.A. fashion is likely denim. That's probably because jeans are practically the unofficial uniform in Los Angeles. Right now, vintage-inspired washes are winning.

The '90s and '00s are making a resurgence, and so are the bags that defined the era. L.A. girls can't get enough of baguette-like shoulder bags, and I'm here for it.

3. Strappy Heels

Strappy heels can be paired with jeans or a going-out minidress, and they're winning as a favorite shoe style among the L.A. fashion set.

4. Sweatpants

While trendy sweats have become even more popular recently, they've always been core to the L.A. insider's wardrobe.



You'll definitely spot L.A. people wearing sneakers just about everywhere. They're a staple for everything from workout classes to the farmers market to dinners, which means a versatile pair is a must.

6. Leather Jackets



L.A. doesn't require much heavy outerwear, but a leather jacket is the key piece you'll wear no matter what time of the year it is.

7. Metal Sunglasses



While a cool pair of sunglasses just might be something to accessorize an outfit in another locale, the perpetually sunny weather in L.A. means that a great pair of sunglasses is a must-have item.
