The 6 Things San Franciscans Will Be Wearing This Spring
Hello, comfy slip-ons
Spring is in the air, which means you have the perfect excuse to spruce up your wardrobe (as long as you’re done cleaning, of course). So we looked to current trends with that special SF twist--you know, where fashionable meets comfortable. Here are six things you’ll see hanging in your closet by the end of the season.
Silk Wrap Dress
Japanese shibori techniques take tie-dye to a new level. Here, artists Lauren and Josh of local fashion house The Podolls add their signature hand-designed print to supple sand-washed silk. Kimono sleeves and a handkerchief hemlineput a sophisticated twist on spring’s pajama-wear trend. We call it pajama chic.
Slim Boyfriend Jeans
Can’t get on the flared denim trend? Then embrace the boyfriend look. Cut for a tighter fit around the thighs, these babies are flattering, not frumpy. Pair with a boyfriend button-down for weekend errands or a boxy striped tee and flats for a casual-chic brunch date.
Timepieces are very much back in style, and the new-to-SF, Detroit-based brand Shinola just launched its latest collection. Inspired by mid-century modernists, the refined Canfield is a real stunner. Customizable bands (we vote alligator), vintage oval buckles and diamond-cut hands give the watch a distinctive look and feel, and make it perfect for glamming up your wrist.
In casual San Francisco, a nice pair of slip-ons never goes out of fashion, and we guarantee these leather ones handcrafted in Turkey will be your go-to shoes for (almost) every occasion and (almost) every season. Get a pair in (almost) every color of the rainbow at Sabah's SF pop-up on May 18 and May 19, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Small Trade Company, 550 Florida St., Ste. D.
