Now’s the perfect time to take stock of what’s trending and fill your wardrobe with this season’s essentials. So we looked at the fall trends and then dialed them down to made-for-SF looks. Here are the six pieces to add to your shopping list.
THE MUST-HAVE BOMBER
When the weather’s all over the place—which is pretty much always in SF—an effortless jacket you can throw on (and off) is key. While black is a safe bet for the jacket of the season, rich jewel tones (like J’amy Tarr’s metallic sapphire) feel especially autumnal.
When our damp, rainy winter comes knocking, there’s nothing a comfy cashmere sweater can’t fix. Everlane’s got them for $100 now. Get one (or three) before they sell out.
Judging by what’s on store shelves, raw-edge denim is here to stay. Keep the distressed look on the mature side (read: office appropriate) by pairing your jeans with girlier accessories like pointy-toe pumps and a box clutch.
FUNKY ANKLE BOOTS
Black and camel are perennially chic, but mix it up this fall with fun colors, textures and prints (burgundy! fringe! velvet!) for a welcome update to your tried-and-true booties.
THE NEW CROSSBODY
OK, so this one isn’t exactly a new product, but we’ve got a new way to style it. Bust out your boxy little crossbody, tighten the strap so that the bag hits above your hip instead of below, and toss it over your shoulder. It’s the perfect accessory for anyone pedaling their way around town.
AN OLD-SCHOOL RAINCOAT
The rain is here already, so it’s a good idea to invest in a proper rain jacket. Look cute (and stay dry) with a classic vinyl topper in a Crayola-bright hue.
