It seems that, at this exact moment, there are more amazing up-and-coming local LA brands than ever. And the best part about these new lines is the attention to quality; crafted in Los Angeles, two of my current favorite local brands are Between Ten and Wal & Pai. Between Ten focuses on high-quality, yet affordable, wardrobe staples with a distinct California feel. Their looks manage to be on-trend without following the trends, bringing a fresh feel to your day-to-day outfits, like Rho Striped Tee: soft and slouchy, it's the perfect everyday t-shirt. Specializing in interest and wearability is also a trait of shoe brand Wal & Pai, whose artisanal styles feature Italian leather, vintage inspiration, and minimal aesthetics. Here, I'm wearing the Doheny bootie, which is so comfortable, practical, and totally stylish. Keep a heads up for more looks featuring Between Ten, Wal & Pai, and other local brands, as there will be many more to come!
