    East Coast has the classic black and white look down! Nothing more classic than wearing black and white in NYC.

    East Coast practically invented the American Preppy look. Every year when school comes around in the fall I become a little nostalgic for preppy pieces like blazers and cardigans.

  • The Little Black Dress 4 of 11

    It's a staple piece in most wardrobes but I can't help thinking it gathers a little more dust here on the west coast. East coasters know how to dress up and go out!

    East coast weather permits more layering of textures. I love that this woman is wearing silk, wool, suede, and jean all accompanied by a great woven leather bag.

    It's just a staple look in the east that doesn't go over quite as well on the west coast. One of the looks I miss the most!

    The next best thing to wearing all black back east is to wear all neutrals. I love how simple yet pulled together this look is.

    New Yorkers have mastered bundling up in style. I love the coat on coat look accented with fur and a cap. There aren't too many places on the west coast you could get away with wearing that many layers.

  • Simple hair and makeup 9 of 11
    lips

    East coast makeup seems to be very minimal with the highlight being a red lip. A classic look that I carried with me here to the west coast.

    West coast style has a very free bohemian vibe which makes me miss structured pieces like this jacket all the more!

    While turtlenecks can sometimes feel dated the east coast has a way of making them blend into their wardrobes, like the perfect classic layering piece.
