"I don't always dress like this," says Esther Thompson from Santa Monica. "I like dark clothes normally, loose fitted Ts.
Today my look is laid back with tennis shoes. The socks are American Apparel."
Rebecca Grube, 28, from Pasadena, says,
"I like to be comfortable and sexy. I have yoga pants in the trunk of my bike in case I get cold.
I couldn't afford a car when I moved and a bike was much cheaper." Asked for adjectives describing her style,
Rebecca replied, "Helmet and heels."
Anthony Cooley, left, from South Central, likes "Unique, urban, vintage" and the 18-year-old's fashion advice is "just be yourself."
Abass Kargbo, also from South Central, dresses "urban, unique, pretty boy." He's wearing a Joy Rich sweater and H & M shoes and says,
"Do something positive with yourself."
"I just like piecing things together that I find places," says Jesus Contreras, 21, of Santa Monica.
"I like things that look older. I'm really nerdy and like to let that show whenever I can."
Chanel Cross, 20, from Pacific Palisades, says her style is "eccentric and always changing. I like my vintage shoes."
"I'm a dancer so I just put on comfortable clothes," says Sanne Andersson, from Sweden and living in Westwood.
"I just buy everything I like and that's probably my style."
She's wearing a Michael Kors watch, Marc Jacobs' bag, and Cava scarf,
shirt and leggings.
^ Well.. I would say that the majority of people in LA are a bit lazier on fashion.. hence, not having the "gorgeous" outfits, at least not out to shop in the more touristy areas. That's how I see it - if you're in a warm weather climate nearly year-round in the US, the overall style of that area is a bit more relaxed.
Not saying it's right, or that it's an excuse - but it's how I feel about LA and it's "style"
