Leather Jacket: American Eagle
Jeans: Banana Republic
Such skimpy apparel doesn’t meet San Francisco’s style standards. For starters, the weather is so unpredictable year round. People who have never been to San Francisco might imagine it to be like the rest of California: warm and sunny all year. But think again. Since San Francisco is located on the bay, it gets brutal wind that keeps temperatures low, despite sunny days.
For the most part, the city’s style can often be pretty laid back. Even at nicer restaurants in San Francisco, you can get away with a pair of skinny jeans and a nice top. My go to outfit for just about everything is a pair of jeans with a nice blouse, a chunky sweater (if it’s cold out), a leather jacket, and ankle booties. Add a scarf if it’s extra chilly or a statement necklace if it’s not. I like to call this the San Francisco uniform, because you can catch just about any women from any age group sporting this look year round. In the summer I like to substitute my casual black leather jacket for a vibrant color, while still remaining warm enough for San Francisco’s unpredictable weather. Below are some more photos of my look, enjoy!
