Complement your patterned pants with a Bebe mini backpack

“I like to buy a lot of unique pieces and see what I can put together when I get home”

Although Golden Hill may not necessarily be one of San Diego’s hippest neighborhoods, wherever there is Dark Horse Coffee Roasters, there also is the eclectic mix of their cult following. It was there I spotted Jade, a freelance graphic designer native to San Diego. Patterned pants seem to be growing in popularity, but hers stood out to me. They were more relaxed and flowy, sported a darker color palette, and looked to be made of velvet. Those, paired with her dark gray tank top (Brandy Melville, $40) and her mini iridescent backpack (Bebe) were what caught my eye.

“I like to buy a lot of unique pieces and see what I can put together when I get home,” Jade explained to me when I asked about her distinctive fashion sense. “I think LA helped me find my freedom, whereas growing up here, I would just stick out way too much. And then once I was more comfortable, I was like, ‘Okay, this is just my style.’”

Her experience reflected my own when I first moved to San Diego from the Bay Area. Here, people seemed to want to blend in and wear the same styles of clothing as their peers. Where I grew up, many people strove to express a personal fashion sense and embraced novelty. This is where thrift and second-hand shops come in to play, as they typically offer more vintage and uncommon pieces. Jade said that she preferred this kind of shopping, and also digging through bargain stores such as Ross, TJ Maxx, and Marshall’s.

Her outfit was completed by a brown mesh bralette (Savage Fenty, $30 in a set), platform classic Vans ($50), and smoky quartz crystal earrings, the stones of which she salvaged from another piece of jewelry she had purchased.
