Reporting from San Diego -- Distressed denim, plaid button-down tops and one-piece swimsuits were among the most popular looks at the Seventeen magazine/Action Sports Retailer runway show today.

A dozen young women modeled outfits that mostly featured a rock and grunge vibe. One model paired a checkered handbag with a black T-shirt, fuschia skirt and black leather ankle boots. Another wore a denim jacket over a black-and-white geometric-pattern short dress and shiny army boots. 

In the accessories department, slouchy knit hats, chunky jewelry and smaller waist-length purses were widely represented.

The runway show took place at the Action Sports Retailer trade show at the San Diego Convention Center. The three-day event is one of the biggest in the surf and skate industry.
