Locals Only: Annina Mislin, Los Angeles


The stylist shares her tips on how to wear one of our favorite silhouettes— the cropped wide-leg pant—and more importantly, where to find the best margarita in her Silver Lake neighborhood.

Annina, photographed outside her house in Silver Lake, wears our striped culotte pant (available 5/17) and Thomas Mason® for J.Crew mandarin-collar tuxedo shirt with Elsie ankle-wrap pumps in sunwashed aqua.

“For me, the key to wearing fuller cropped trousers like these is not losing my waist or making my legs look shorter. I like to wear an oversized top tucked in at the front or a slim short-sleeve tee.”

“I love pairing heels with loose-fitting pants. And when I wear flats, I incorporate something a bit more feminine, like a slim jean.”
Annina wears her own J.Crew shirt and vintage jeans with the Sam sunglasses in navy.


“How I dress has definitely changed with age. The older I get, the more I lean toward the classics: the perfect leather jacket, cashmere sweaters, a beautiful suit, fine jewelry…”
Wearing the Collins leather loafers in alabaster with her own vintage jeans.

“The weather is a huge factor for me when I visit New York. I always come prepared for extremes—a million layers in the winter or light fabrics in the summer. In LA, there’s definitely more freedom when it comes to fashion. It’s an ‘anything goes’ attitude.”
