California dreaming! As an L.A. resident who grew up on the east coast, I definitely appreciate SoCal style — but it’s not the surfer or valley girl vibes I had imagined before moving here (The Californians sketch on SNL really threw me off). Instead, the overall aesthetic incorporates the laidback yet fashion-forward feel of coastal towns.

And California in the ’70s was even cooler! It was basically real-life Coachella, minus the influencers. Crochet for days! Although fall on the west coast doesn’t get quite as chilly as the opposite side of the country, we still embrace sweater weather over here. So, without further ado, here are the best ’70s-inspired California-chic pieces for fall. Totally groovy!
