469 square miles. Santa Ana winds. Desert climate. Plagued by consistent heat, terrible droughts, earthquakes, and destructive forest fires. LA is a vast and dangerous wasteland. Traversing this seemingly uninhabitable city will lead you through valleys, deserts, beaches, and mountains, which means that dressing for Fall in these unpredictable conditions calls for a careful balancing of fabrics and silhouettes. Leather, suede, and denim will keep you protected from the elements, while shorts with over-the-knee boots will prepare you for anything the city throws your way.
