I Live In LA & These Are The Items That’ll Keep You Cool This Winter

Living in Los Angeles I’ve grown accustomed to clear sunny skies and perfect temperatures most of the year; however that doesn’t stop us from wanting the full winter experience. Rarely dropping below 60 degrees, when given a chance, we don’t hesitate to either bring out our flyest cold weather clothes or freeze in our year-round attire. If you’re a last-minute shopper like me or could just use a seasonal wardrobe update, there’s still time for a winter refresh.


Stocking up on fashionable yet practical clothing items that I can wear year after year is necessary to keep my closet from overflowing with bulky items I’ll hardly ever wear. From quilted pants to chunky boots, it's finally time to put on a few of my favorite winter purchases that can keep up with not only the weather but my busy everyday life. Scroll to find the key fashion items to embrace the semi-cold LA weather in style this season.

1. Quilted Pants

These olive green vintage quilted liner pants are perfect for a winter in LA and beyond. Extremely comfortable, stylish, and uniquely designed, they can be worn throughout a range of temperatures this season. For cool sunny days, pair with a cropped top, oversized blazer, and platform Doc Marten boots for the ultimate weekender look.

My favorite footwear trend, chunky soles are here to stay throughout the remainder of winter 2022. Pairing these two-toned platform boots with gray leggings and a cropped quilted jacket, I’m serving my best ski-inspired look. No matter your location, you’ll get plenty of wear rain or shine.

3. Puffer Coat

The puffer coat (or puffer jacket) remains one of the most popular outerwear trends, even for LA girls. While it is hardly ever cold enough to wear without overheating, for a cozy and casual look, this winter classic makes sweatpants and sneakers look so good. Wearing my go-to sweats 90% of the time, I love adding this extra layer for a more stylish approach.

Skylar Marshai is known for her extravagant style, and her hair is no exception. But now, she’s giving her hair a break and focusing on hair care with SheaMoisture’s Bond Repair Collection. “I feel like my hair has always been an extension of my storytelling because I know it's so innately linked to my self-expression that I've been thinking a lot about how my love for crafting my hair into these different forms and shapes has honestly never given it a chance to just be,” Skylar explains.
