Los Angeles may be known for sunshine, palm trees and movie stars but those of us in the fashion world know it is also the denim capital of the world. Perhaps no one does off-duty cool better than an LA girl thanks to the city’s sunny and casual lifestyle. Here, a few examples of how to rock an array of locally grown denim styles with ease, confidence and just the right amount of LA sass.

Bleached Cutoffs

No true Angeleno is complete without the perfect pair of cutoffs. A white pair is a fun alternative to typical denim that makes for a put-together, easy-breezy ensemble.

Slouchy Boot-Cut

When channeling LA's laid-back lifestyle keep hair and makeup to a minimum. Enhance hair's natural texture with salt spray, and define eyes with a soft brown shadow.
