Whether it’s a classic dress-and-shoe combo, ideas for styling tricky pieces like Bermuda shorts, or a sweatpants look that is anything but boring, we could all use some more outfit ideas to mix things up. That’s why we’re looking to eight of our favorite L.A.-based fashion people to inspire with chic looks that, simply put, work every time.

Here, see and shop the looks for yourself, and don’t forget to save your favorites for the next time you’re looking for some fresh inspiration.

Wrap Dress + Heels + Earrings

This easy outfit formula works year after year. One thing I love about wrap dresses is how easy they are to dress up or dress down, simply by pairing on with a simple sandal or pair of strappy heels.

A cool, modern take on flip-flops.

Mateo 14k Faceted Huggie Earrings ($325)

The sculptural hoops feel particularly fresh.

Ribbed Top + Bermuda Shorts + Loafers

The Bermuda shorts trend has been going strong and this is exactly how to pull off the tricky trend. This outfit is the perfect polished look to wear right now and then later this fall by adding boots and a blazer.

Ribbing gives tank tops a cool, modern finish.

Satin Top + Sweatpants + Tube Socks

The ensemble that’s the closest thing you’ll get to feeling like you’re wearing pajamas. Sure, you could stick with a matching sweatpant set but I love the idea of adding in a satin top instead of a hoodie.

Shop the look:

Mango Satin Top ($42)

So elegant.

Topshop Peached Jersey Joggers ($50)

Perfect for wearing at home.

Oversize Tee + Jeans + Loafers

Jeans and a tee never fail—especially when you have a cool pair of loafers to finish the look. I’ve found that a light-wash like these have major staying power in my closet.

Take a break from your all-black basics.
