Battle of Styles: East Coast vs. West Coast

Let’s face it. East coast and west coast styles are everything.

While casual, albeit luxurious and designer brands, basics define west coast style, that is not at all the case in the east.

In California, laid back (yet totally premeditated) outfits are often infused with bohemian vibes. The end result? Casual chic at its best.

East coast style, on the other hand, is much more polished and sophisticated. Outfits are fashion-forward and studded with confident statement pieces.

Whether you’re an east coast or west coast girl, we’re laying the style battle out for you here.

Here are two takes on fall fashion. Both sick, yet very different:

West Coast

If you are bathing in that California sun, opt for basics that you can easily layer and wear all year–considering the weather pretty much remains the same year round. APC’s Dolly coat is a timeless staple that will instantly pull together a casual look. Neutrals get a ton of play on the west coast. Pair slightly distressed Frame Denim cigarette pants with Vince’s raglan sweater and a pair of camel booties. The result is a look that is one part casual and one part California cool.

 

 

East Coast

We totally agreed with The Beach Boys, when they sang, “Well East coast girls are hip/I really dig those styles they wear.” It’s true.

So city girls, never be afraid to make a statement.

Set your inner Carrie Bradshaw free! But of course a bold winter coat is a must. An MSGM topper provides not only a rich cherry hue, but also a trendy fur collar.

Who said less is more, again? Because they were wrong. Pair Alice + Olivia’s sleek leather pants with Saint Laurent studded booties for an edgy, downtown vibe. Balance out this look with a cobalt sweater and refined jewelry by Pamela Love and you’ll kill it.
