Tied Up

J Brand maroon Neck Tie Blouse, Reiss wool blazer

My love for downtown LA runs deep. It’s an area of town that displays how this city is persistently on the verge of becoming even better. It’s a culturally diverse, artistically booming metropolis of constant newness. And despite what everyone says about LA always being hot, it definitely enjoys a few chillier months that, among plenty of other benefits, open the closet doors for cozy and warm outerwear.

The week between Christmas and New Year’s is a perfect example. It’s actually one of my favorite times to enjoy downtown. The streets are a little more quiet and the cool, crisp air helps make way for some of my favorite trends of the winter season, one of which are neck-tie blouses. They’re perfect for a quick way to elevate an outfit and classy like no other. Another favorite are comfy wool blazers. They provide just enough coverage, without sacrificing class, for any wintery day in LA.
