Chilling on a Rooftop in Los Angeles

July 6th, 2017 at 2:06am

Los Angeles is the perfect place to play with your style, because each part of the city has it’s own unique vibe. In Venice, Vans rule the world with skater-inspired style on every corner. In Beverly Hills, designer is the name of the game. Style Guru Cydney Critchlow is showing off her style in Downtown Los Angeles on the rooftop of The Standard Hotel.

Downtown Los Angeles is full of a mixture of working professionals and trendy millennials, which add a unique vibe to the city. The best place to grab a quick bite to eat, while checking out the city from above, is The Standard Hotel. Seeing a city from an elevated view gives you a whole new prospective.

Cydney’s outfit caught my eye with her slightly distressed look perfect for a hot California day. Her look inspired me to write a few tips on how to dress for chilling on a rooftop in Los Angeles.

Dress Light

It can get very hot on top of a roof with the summer sun beating down on you, so dress light. Whether that means light-colored clothing or a light fabric, dressing light is the perfect way to chill on a rooftop. Cydney’s top from American Eagle is perfect with its lightweight fabric and white color. Additionally, a white blouse or an off-the-shoulder top are other great options.

Wear Your Favorite Sunglasses

Not only are sunglasses super cool, but they are actually very practical for protecting your eyes against the sun. In fact, LA can be very sunny, which is why sunglasses are an absolute stable. I love a classic black pair or blue reflective shades as my sunnies of choice.

Be comfortable

Walking around a city all day can be pretty exhausting and hard on your feet, so wearing heels isn’t practical. Cydney paired her outfit with comfy slip-on sneakers from ALDO, the perfect shoe for city strolling and rooftop chilling. Try pairing your outfit with some comfy white Vans (the company actually got its start in Los Angeles). LA is all about that laid-back California vibe so you will fit right in!

Los Angeles is the perfect place to be this summer! Be prepared for those hot LA days by remembering to dress light, packing your sunnies, and staying comfortable. If you do manage to hit the West Coast this summer and happen to be around the downtown Los Angeles area, head up to the rooftop at The Standard Hotel. Not only is the food incredible, but the views of Los Angeles are amazing, especially when the morning smog burns off. I love LA!
