Clashy, Cosmic, Punk

Lauren Murrow | June 9, 2014 | Style & Beauty Story Style

Editor's Note: This is one of many dispatches from Oakland that San Francisco magazine is publishing over the next month, all part of our June "Oakland Issue." To see the rest of the issue's contents, and to read stories as they become available online, click here.

What is Oakland style? Definitely not normcore, and a far cry from S.F.’s ubiquitous chambray and ballet flats. The look is more clothing swap than sample sale, unmatched rather than on trend. It's gaudy, it's garish, and—as the individualists above will tell you—it doesn't give a damn about what anyone else thinks.

Originally published in the June issue of San Francisco.
