Miss Jessie’s and ESSENCE team up for an day of beauty in Los Angeles. We show California some love this week as Street Style heads to Hollywood. See the style game of these fashion-forward stylistas that hail from the Sunshine State.
This event took place at the Wilshire Beauty, wilshirebeauty.com
This fashion blogger adores vintage finds and says she “always adds a modern twist” to her outfits. Kethia, 23, is wearing Kitson knit pants, Target lace top, studded leather jacket, Wet Seal platform shoes and Michael Kors watch. “I wear what I like for the most part,” says this L.A. fashionista.
Abigail, 24, is a registered nurse and describes her style as “down-to-earth chic.” We’re feelin’ her color-blocked top, which is so in for fall.
Esa, 35, is donning a vintage dress and says her style is “LA causal.” Jeweled tone hues like this ruby red are key colors for fall.
Hailing from Santa Ana, California, Alysha, 21, is a dancer/singer and shows off her long legs in these hot black shorts. Her neon blue bauble necklace gives this casual day look some extra appeal.
Los Angeles mix-master DJ Dizam was on the scene wearing a feminine yellow dress with some masculine army fatigues for a look that is tough girl chic.
Fawnia, 29, goes for “sophisticated sexy” sporting an Armani Exchange dress, Hue tights in red, Steve Madden boots and bebe necklace.
Cali women are still rocking summer clothes, and yes, us ladies in the Northeast are a little jealous.
Karen-Marie, 28, is an actress/model from Inglewood, California, and tells ESSENCE.com that she “loves vintage. I wear all types of eclectic styles.”
“I go for a look that’s urban-Hollywood sleek with a dash of BoHo, aka dope,” says Lavonne, with a smile. This makeup artist likes to mix high and low brands like Target with Michael Kors.
“I dress very natural,” says Parthenia, 32, who works in sales. We see even on the West Coast ladies are still lovin’ gladiator sandals.
“I love mixing urban brands with other labels,” Mei-Li, 26, who works as assistant designer.
Take a cue from Monique, 24, who works as a teacher and don a pair of cigarette pants. You’ll thank us later because this style of pant is very flattering because it elongates the body.
