Style is in San Francisco, you’re not looking hard enough.
Tiffany Wang, a native to the Bay Area, is a fashionable bay maven who runs operations and sales for her families business while also running a highly successful fashion platform. Wang took an approach to style that’s approachable, easy-to-wear, and fun. Plain and simple. “I spend my days blogging and managing the sales/marketing operations of my family business, Wang Insurance,” she told us when we asked about her day-to-day, “in my free time, I’m usually online shopping, exploring new restaurants and coffee shops, reading birth charts or sipping on dirty martinis.” We sat down with Tiffany for a quick second to briefly chat about fashion, San Francisco, and the one crucial point about growing up.
BC: Style in San Francisco: Where do you stand on this topic of debate?
TW: SF style is decidedly casual and laidback. The upside is that you can get away with wearing a t-shirt and jeans to even the fanciest restaurant. The downside, of course, is that there are fewer opportunities to get dolled up. (Even wearing heels and a dress out to a bar on a Friday night can feel fussy.) Occasionally I miss dressing up, but most of the time — especially now that I’m in my 30s — I appreciate that comfort is a priority here.
BC: How has the landscape of the ever-changing personal style effected you in your years of fashion? Excited about trends? Asking yourself WTF on others?
TW: When I was younger, I definitely tried out every fashion trend, no matter how ridiculous. But over the years I’ve learned to buy less and spend more on individual items that I can wear often, and for a long time. I always gravitate towards looks that are more minimalist, low-fuss and monochrome, and shun anything that feels tacky or cheap. At the moment, I am really enjoying the revival of ’70s and ’80s fashion trends (think chunky jewelry, gold, red, and all-things-checkered).
If you could tell your younger self one piece of style advice, what’s the ONE crucial thing they should know?
Invest in quality over quantity.
What’s coming up for Tiffany in 2018?
Hopefully higher-quality content, more fun collaborations and more travel! Also, I just purchased a house in Bernal Heights, so expect lots more blog posts and IG photos about interior design as well!
