Style Stakeout: Studio City
The actors, musicians, and fashionistas who frequent Ventura Boulevard down in the Valley are advocates of high-low dressing
Jennifer Baxter, 37, actor
Wearing: Vintage top, jacket, and sunglasses; Earnest Sewn cutoff jeans; Sam Edelman boots; Forever 21 jewelry
"I'm inspired by street-style blogs. In general I prefer easy, everyday looks. I don't own a lot of high heels or dresses."
Hannah Crockett, 22, office assistant
Wearing: Vintage top, necklace, and bag; Lush cardigan; Urban Outfitters jeans; Dolce Vita boots; Rolex watch; Gucci sunglasses
"I like comfortable things, loose clothing. I'm from Malibu and I grew up wearing boys' clothes, so I still like to wear guys' sweaters and skinny jeans."
Brandon Beal, 29, musician
Wearing: Le Fix shirt, pants, and ball cap; Jack & Jones jacket; Vans sneakers; Gucci sunglasses
"Pretty much everything I have is Le Fix. It's a brand out of Copenhagen. They're my tour sponsor, so I get to go to their warehouse and pick whatever I want."
Mike Moser, 23, assistant manager
Wearing: Rick Owens top, Lanvin button-down shirt, RRL jeans, custom shoes, beanie from Target
"I like blending high-end sportswear with drapey Ann Demeulemeester-like pieces. My fashion idol is Rick Owens because he's a genius."
Kristine Elezaj, 27, recording artist
Wearing: Lauren Moshi sweater, David Lerner leggings, Stuart Weitzman boots, YSL bag, Tom Ford sunglasses
"I don't always wear designer clothes, but my shoes and bags are always designer. If you have on a pair of amazing shoes or sick boots, it just elevates your whole look."
