We tapped six LA fashion insiders to find out which warm weather wardrobe items they can't live without this spring.
Mate the Label Founder Kayti O'Connell Carr: A Black-and-White Striped T-Shirt
“There is nothing more classic and effortless than a simple black-and-white striped tee. I am so glad stripes are having a moment right now. For spring, I am a big fan of styling [it] with worn-in vintage denim and sneakers.”
“My must-have spring item is my Cobra Bite Choker. This piece is a statement, but in a simplistic way. I love the textural contrast of leather and metal. This is my t-shirt necklace. Gray t-shirt, the tan and silver Cobra Bite, [and you’re] out the door.”
Cult Guy Co-Designer Cameron Larian: A Short-Sleeve Button Down
“I always need a fresh short-sleeve button down for spring. It’s versatile, easy to wear, and is the ultimate go-to for warm weather. You can pair it with a leather jacket, a blazer, or a bathing suit. No wardrobe is complete without one.”
"Our Gaia’s Ark Bamboo Bag is the most functional piece of art and a major conversation starter. I can throw everything in there and always look chic.”
Apolis Co-Founder Raan Parton: A Versatile Tote Bag
“The [market carrier tote] is a bit more functional version of our tote collection that has an adjustable strap to be a short handle or a longer tote strap perfect for everyday, a quick trip to the market, or in my case my go-to beach bag. The black jute with the black leather handle definitely gives a new level of elegance to the product."
Apolis Co-Founder Shea Parton: A Pair of Double Duty Swim Shorts
“Most weekends I live in our Transition Scout Shorts, which are a shorted in-seam shorts that we made out of a performance nylon. They are an amazing garment for a trail run, casual weekend off-duty look, or double as a perfect swim trunk. This summer, with my new son Everett keeping my time short, they are a super flexible garment for people on the move.”
