Even though it may be a little cliché, Melrose is one of my favorite places in Los Angeles. The street is lined with the cutest cafés, one-of-a-kind vintage shops and world-renowned designer boutiques—not to mention some of the city’s most Instagrammable landmarks. Below, I’ve created the ultimate guide featuring the top 5 must-have photos that’ll take your feed to the next level.
ONE: Paul Smith Pink Wall // The famous can’t-visit-LA-without-a-photo-in-front-of-it pink wall. Even though I’m a local, I still love it. #sorrynotsorry
TWO: Palihotel // Everything about this place is photo-worthy, from its rustic exterior to ultra-cool marquee lights and vintage-inspired decor. It also houses one of the LA’s most adorable and delicious brunch spots, The Hart and the Hunter.
THREE: Cisco Home ‘Made in LA’ Mural // Even if you weren’t technically made in LA, your Instagram still can be…
FOUR: Fred Segal // The ivy-covered building is basically a street-style dream. Try to pick an outfit with light, contrasting colors that will stand out against the backdrop.
FIVE: Alfred Coffee // Basically the cutest coffee shop ever, tucked away behind Marc Jacobs on Melrose Place. They not only serve up the most enviable latte art, but a charming photo backdrop, too.
