There has always been a clear difference in trends between New York City and Los Angeles, which is never more noticeable than during the winter months when L.A. street style regulars are spotted in clothing that could only ever be worn in a place that rarely drops below 60°. This was proven true on Monday when Kendall Jenner was spotted leaving a meeting in Beverly Hills wearing a combo that bundled-up New Yorkers like myself could only dream of re-creating in the middle of January: jeans and a sweater-vest.
For the occasion, Jenner layered a striped vest from ERL (which happens to be on sale but is quickly selling out at Ssense) on top of a white, short-sleeved tee. She paired the duo with mid-wash blue jeans as well as black boots and a brown shoulder bag from The Row. Suffice to say, the casual, lightweight ensemble wouldn’t fly during the current East Coast cold front, but it is perfect for a winter day in L.A.
It’s no wonder, then, that Jenner’s sweater-and-jeans combo has become one of the sartorial pairings seen most in the city. See how she styled the warm-weather go-to ahead.
