I Moved From Manchester to L.A., and My Fashion Uniform Has Really Changed

It’s tricky enough packing the perfect holiday suitcase when you’re allowed to visit somewhere with a totally different climate from what you’re used to (especially after a year or more spent restricted to your immediate neighbourhood), but boxing up your entire life and relocating over 5000 miles away? Now that’s an epic wardrobe task.

Recently, YouTuber and Instagrammer Naomi Genes did just that, switching Manchester for Los Angeles, and we wanted to know more. For June, our unyielding desire for travel has led us to vicariously live through our most stylish friends across the globe: We’ve mentally explored the world from our sofas, jetting from Lagos to Corsica thanks to the input of our external contributor network.

But now, it’s time for someone who knows Brit style inside and out to tell us about the real fashion-related differences between the UK and the starriest place on earth. With almost 850k followers on her IG handle, Naomi has been charting her big move and subsequent looks to many, providing some summer outfit inspiration, even if your local weather report isn’t quite as optimistic as West Hollywood’s. Keep scrolling to see Naomi’s style and to read about the fashion changes she’s made since her big move.
