My Look: Purvi Patel’s Printed Pants

Since Purvi Patel returned from a trip to India last year and started working at Haus Love, it’s been hard to miss the petite style-setter around Broad Ripple, decked in the latest trends (usually Ray-Bans and Birkenstocks).

Did you find these on your trip?
No, at Haus Love. The brand is THML Clothing.

They look comfortable.
They are. Not a button or zipper on them.

What did you buy in India?
Multicolored sandals. I found them at a street market for less than $2.

What are your wardrobe staples?
Skinny jeans, scarves, a good pair of sunglasses, and a black leather moto jacket.

Do you have a thing for patterns?
I love mixing colors and prints. I think different color combinations and mixtures of patterns can make each piece completely different the next time you wear it. These pants are perfect for pairing with solid staples and still being playful.

Who is your go-to designer at Haus Love?
NSF Clothing, an L.A.–based brand. It’s my spirit animal. The clothes all have clean lines and some extremely buttery fabrics.

What trend are you excited about?
Birkenstocks came back big last year. I still love them. I’m digging flared pants, too. High-waisted ones are the best.
