LA Style Watch is a weekly feature that highlights the best spots in Los Angeles County for lifestyle, fashion and shopping.
This week takes us to perhaps the biggest proponent on our countdown, Downtown Los Angeles better known as DTLA.
DTLA can simply be described as the point of reference for LA based fashion.
If there were ever such a thing as a style map for Los Angeles chances are all arrows would point to DTLA.
The popular district is comprised of miles and miles of fairly noticeable, locally driven fashion destinations such as California Market Center-- well known for its epic sample sales. FIGat7th, which contains all of the fashion retail giants conveniently located in one spot.
Simply put, every corner of every stretch is lined up with a strong presence of shops, boutiques, vendors and more, all waiting for you to peruse their carefully curated inventory and of course spend your heart out!
Other then the pretty obvious points, what also makes DTLA so special? well there is also the fact that hoards of people come from all over California to visit the location due to its rep of offering a little of the best of everything from mainstream to indie, clothing to shoes and a few delish treats here and there.
And for that very reason it remains one of the best fashion districts in the U.S. Heading to DTLA? make sure to check off these place on your shopping list..
