First introduced in the 1950s, T-shirts caught on immediately after decades of uncomfortable and confusing K- and Q-shirts. Embrace a comfortably limited alphabet with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of women's casual apparel and accessories at L.A.+JO in Culver City.
L.A.+JO arms fashionistas from top to toe with an abundance of laid-back, highly detailed women's clothing and accessories. A basic T-shirt's mesh triangle shows a polite peek of collarbone ($32), while the racer-back intense tank ($34) cascades over hips but leaves shoulder blades free for detachable wings. Fend off evening chills with a light cardigan ($48) in grey, black, or white, or let legs run free on sunny days with the distressed denim short ($48). Complementary jewelry, hats, scarves, and bags let ladies customize outfits for occasions ranging from fanciful nights on the town to master-of-disguise conventions.
Long strings of jewelry hang from a twisting tree-branch display as sunlight streams in to land on L.A. + JO's wealth of eye-catching cocktail dresses and fashion-minded casual wear. The boutique's lofty ceilings and concrete floors showcase gleaming white mannequins who don looks inspired by Hollywood starlets, and shopping Hollywood starlets wear ankle hardware to match their favorite mannequin. Flaunted by celebrities such as Amanda Seyfried and Taylor Armstrong, the shop stands as the median point on “a fashion continuum that [has] Forever 21 on one end and Barneys on the other,” according to Racked LA.
