Even though I love the fast-paced fashion world in New York City, sometimes the sea of blacks and grays can get a little boring! I admire how women on the West Coast embrace the bright and bold in their personal style. Here are the top 10 styles I seriously miss from the West Coast.

Tan Parka 2 of 10
In New York, we tend to stick to our black and green parkas in the fall. I'm jealous of West Coasters who are confident enough to wear parkas in a rainbow of colors! Buy this one here at Madewell.
Flannel Button-Up 3 of 10
I love that the classic flannel button-up shirt keeps getting recycled every season on the West Coast! Buy this one here at Madewell.
Floppy Wool Hat 4 of 10
For a hot minute there, it seemed like every woman in New York owned this hat. Now I only find them on the West Coast! I'm jealous that this trend has remained popular in California. Buy it here at American Apparel.
Leopard Print 5 of 10
I'm a sucker for a good pattern, and the classic leopard print remains my favorite pattern to rock. I wish New Yorkers would embrace this style! Buy it here at Asos.
Floral Tops 6 of 10
It seems like West Coast women aren't afraid to embrace their feminine side when getting dressed. Isn't this floral shirt dreamy? Buy it here at Asos.
Colored Boots 7 of 10
When it comes to footwear, I tend to stick with neutral colors like black or gray. I love that West Coast women rock boots of all colors! Buy them here at Madewell.
Bold Swimsuit 8 of 10
When it comes to swimwear, it's best not to take yourself too seriously. I'm digging this bandeau-style suit that would transition well from beach to daywear! Buy it here at Asos.
Pink Sundress 9 of 10
Forget long black dresses, I'm all about this cute pink sundress. I could totally see myself rocking this dress on a California beach! Buy it here at American Apparel.
