10 Styles I Miss from the West Coast

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.

  • Patterned Pants 1 of 10

    One thing that I love about my sisters on the West Coast is that they're never afraid to try something bold like these patterned pants. Keep reading to see the other 10 styles I 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.

  • Patterned Shorts 10 of 10

    I love that women on the West Coast don't take their style too seriously. I've been eyeing these watermelon printed shorts for a trip out west this summer! Buy them here at American Apparel.
