Best Fashions From China That Look Like Beverly Hills Los Angeles 2012 


So popular that it has expanded to three locations in the Valley and one in Brentwood, Soto/South is about well-made pieces that shout "Rodeo Drive" but rarely cost more than $65. A gorgeous line of pleather jackets, priced from $59 to a sky-high (for Soto) $88, features pieces such as a formfitting "distressed sand" faux leather jacket with plaid inserts. Layering is huge at Soto, which sells boyfriend sweaters with toggle buttons, faux-cashmere loose-knit sweaters, boxy-cut sweaters, elegant poncho sweaters and airy woven wraps. The colors are beautiful, including deep taupe, aqua-and-tan heather, black-and-white heather and wonderful shades of gray. Pair these items with nearly sheer, long-sleeve T-shirts and high-end (-looking) stretch jeans in skinny, boot-cut or flair for just $39 to $49. "We sell hundreds of them," says manager Debra Rosenstock. Not to mention giant hoop earrings for $38 and earthy faux-pearl necklaces. 4865 Topanga Canyon Blvd., Woodland Hills; 13814 Ventura Blvd., Sherman Oaks; 2899 Agoura Blvd., Westlake Village; 11724 Barrington Court, Brentwood. (818) 346-7686,
