Here in the UAE, we are lucky enough, to have year round sunshine, just like another city that’s pretty similar to ours half way across the world. Los Angeles is cool, laidback and sunny, all adjectives that also describe Dubai. We could learn a thing or two about laidback style from our sister city.

Here are five pieces that will up your LA cool girl factor.

1. Mom Jeans

Slouchy, comfortable and stylish. Mom jeans are all the rage. Laidback Cali girls love throwing back to the 90s with a jean that seriously flatter. Pair it with comfy sneakers and a striped tee for the ultimate cool LA girl look.

2. An asymmetrical dress

This soft and supple number comes in a bold colour and has been worn by ladies all over the city of angels. They usually wear it together with a denim jacket and a pair of Gucci inspired loafers or if it’s a night out, with a leather jacket or even something faux fur.

3. An all-black jumpsuit

Angelinos love an all-black everything look. Wear it with big hair, high heels and gold accessories to add some edginess to the outfit. Not only is black slimming, but it looks clean longer, it is very versatile and of course, it’s very chic. The benefit of a jumpsuit, is that you don’t have to think too much about what to wear, it’s just that one piece.

4. An ugly-pretty mule

One of those fashion pieces that to this day has me baffled is the mule. It’s one of those looks that no matter how hard you try will just always be ugly-chic. I am a little unconvinced with the mule since I am after all a woman in a hurry — and I need straps. But mules look great with dresses, jeans, culottes, jumpsuits… the list is long. Get them sparkly, so they can stand out in the outfit.

5. Arm candy

LA girls love an arm full of jewellery. They stack bracelets in different materials and metals together. The one stand out piece is usually a nice watch. Gold is a classic and also trending at the moment. It looks especially good if you have a nice tan to go with it.
