These pants are women’s as well. I got them for $10 from H&M. The women’s apparel in a lot of stores looks better than the men’s—it’s more fashion forward.”

When I’m in the office I have to dress down a bit, but I definitely maintain my style and play around with my suits. I’m usually on fashion websites all day. That will probably be my next career move.”

LaymanStreet style: The Topshop LA grand opening Joseph Castellanos, 25, costumer “I got this shirt from Urban Outfitters, I don’t shop there too often, but I found this and took out all the embroidery tags because it was a little busy at first. I’m more about just letting the garment speak for itself. The floral print on it is not too feminine for a guy to wear.”

Los Angeles’ style set lined up for the debut of Topshop LA at the Grove. The crazed fans were all-dolled-up and eager to show off their street style at the two-story flagship’s British-themed block party and live concert. Housing both Topshop and Topman, the new 30,000-sqaure-foot store's LA debut attracted a slew of fashion-forward women and men, who began lining up at 5am for the store’s 4pm Valentine’s Day opening.
