Street Style: When L.A. Meets NYC

Our editors in New York City are hitting the streets for some style inspiration. Check in with us every week to see the top looks we capture while out and about.

Name: Sam Spotted: Union Square Hometown: Los Angeles Occupation: Graduate student Describe your style: Comfortable and casual. Your summer must-have item: Denim cutoff shorts. Favorite places to shop: Bloomingdale's, Urban Outfitters, boutiques in Melrose, boutiques in the East Village. What she's wearing: Dress: boutique in L.A. Shoes: Steve Madden Purse: vintage Chanel (her grandmother's) Red bracelet: The Market NYC in NoLita Green glass bead bracelet: from her childhood Blue bracelet: Gilt Groupe Purple necklace (worn as a bracelet): Thailand Pendant: The Market NYC Silver cross necklace: Free People Black cross necklace: Phoenix Roze in the West Village Why we love her look: Her vibe is without a doubt "very L.A."—and her style resonates the same low-key, ease. What gives this summer dress outfit a dynamic appeal are the boyish lace-up boots and the creative necklace-turned-bracelet on one arm matched with the piling on of a rainbow-esque array of bracelets on the other (her skull bracelet reminded us of this one we spotted earlier this month). And of course we must mention the vintage Chanel suede purse: love its subtle monogram stitch.
