You may think that San Diego’s ideal weather would lend itself to always wearing flip-flops, t-shirts, and shorts, but think again. San Diego’s style has evolved into more of an effortless-chic, yet still comfy vibe. Think non-complicated pieces that allow for layering options with colors ranging from vibrant to neutral to pastels.
Here are four of my go-to boutiques to find that perfect San Diego outfit.
One of my favorite boutiques that represent true San Diego-Style is Capricorn Boutique. Offering quality items at affordable prices, this boutique has something for everyone. Specializing in women’s clothing, accessories, dainty to statement jewelry, and gift items. Think maxi dresses, jumpsuits, rompers, wide brim hats, and chic t-shirts that can be worn with jeans or as a bathing suit cover-up. For laid back beach-chic styles, this is your place.

Right in the village of La Jolla is the popular, Rica Boutique. This women’s specialty boutique has an amazing selection of colorful layering pieces that won’t break the bank. Try a tangerine colored sundress with a fitted jean vest. Add a piece from one of their local jewelry designer collections, like a long gold semi-precious stone necklace, some bohemian-chic sandals, a straw fedora hat to complete the look.

For women check out their digital print dresses, add a lightweight jacket, statement earrings, a pastel pump to complete the look.
