Brand I like: Lacausa

19

This ethically-produced, L.A.-based line has been around since 2013, but I somehow didn’t discover it until the other day.  I’m really digging its tomboyish-ly utilitarian—but still somehow feminine—aesthetic. This gauze shirt, for example, looks so easy to wear, but also slightly sexy.

The top half of this crisp dress is kind of preppy, and the tiered bottom half is a bit boho, but together it all works somehow.

These wide-leg trousers have a chill chino-ish vibe.

I really, really like the idea of this red jumpsuit, even though my friend Tally (probably correctly) pointed out that a red jumpsuit is an awful lot of statement. So I’m thinking I might go for the blue or black instead.

A perfect lightweight jacket for the transitional weather we’ll be having pretty soon.

I’m not crazy for wrap dresses—I’m always afraid I’m one false move away from exposing myself. But I think this one would be aces with a black silk slip underneath.

This breezy blouse has a kind of streamlined romantic feel, if that’s a thing.

I own so many button-downs that it seems nuts to even consider adding to the menagerie in my closet, but this looks so slouchily perfect that I might have no choice but to.

    I’ve never heard of this brand either, but I’m loving what I see on their site, particularly this dress. Too much hippie?

      I’m thinking that if you like it, it’s just the right amount of hippie…

    I’m wearing a red jumpsuit as I type! I’m not really the sort of person that goes for a red jumpsuit, but maybe that’s why I love it so much. It’s kind of unexpected, and I always get a ton of compliments when I wear it. It’s easier than you think! Fit is paramount (even more so than normal) and I just keep everything else sort of basic and it works.

    I’ve several LACAUSA items in my closet on constant wear. I’ve found their clothing true to size, well made and if you remember to hang the tee-shirts to dry and don’t accidentally put them in the dryer they will serve you well (an Oy and Egad moment). I am loving that lightweight jacket that you show and will be tempted for sure. I will also admit that I tried to pronounce the name as if it were an actual word for-effing-ever until I realized that it is L-os A-ngeles C-A-lifornia USA. Tiny brain, big heart.

      Plus, everyone says they’re universally flattering, but they look TERRIBLE on me. They weirdly cut me in the bust and make me look the approximate body shape of Aunt Bea.

        I’m laughing because I have an Aunt Bea, she is about four foot nothing, will turn 101 in November, and is a SPITFIRE. But I know what you mean.

        They’re absolutely hideous on me too. Do my waist no favours and clearly my bust isn’t up to the task either.

    Looks great! I love the gauzy button down, as well as the blue one toward the end of the post. And that white jacket has also caught my eye!

    Well, I do love that color and I kind of love the jumpsuit, but it also kind of looks like hip prison wear.

        also seeking info on the boots, which would make those pants year-round wearable.
