People are always really surprised when they come to San Francisco because they are expecting “California” weather, aka sunny and warm. Unfortunately, this city by the bay always has a slight breeze and is a little backwards with the Spring/Summer being one of the coldest times of the year. This usually leaves people a little confused on what to wear and is a frequent question I receive.
I’ve recently teamed up with NET-A-PORTER.COM to showcase five SF Essentials that anyone living or visiting San Francisco will need! I’ll be posting a new essential each day this week that corresponds with one of NET-A-PORTER’s top trends for Spring – so be sure to check back daily!
The first essential is a leather jacket (this one is MICHAEL Michael Kors). The reason why I choose a leather jacket over any other jacket is because it’s so versatile. You can wear it to work, you can wear it out for drinks and you can wear it on the weekends and it’ll also keep you warm. You really can’t go wrong with a classic black leather jacket that pairs with practically everything in your closet. I created this look based on the “Parisian Glamour” trend, which I perceive as effortlessly cool and chic. Ripped jeans, a striped sweater, leather jacket, timelessly chic black handbag and red lipstick are always a winning combo.
