    San Francisco might not be a fashion capital, per se, but it is a town with loads of style. Proof: our bevy of amazing boutiques, mega-dreamy restaurants, and troves of P.Y.T.s who regularly pound the pavement from North Beach to the Mission. In the latter group, one of the budding style stars who's been inspiring us lately is 23-year-old beauty Alexandra Thurmond, who logs time as the PR and social media coordinator for the Academy of Art University (a.k.a. ground zero for fashion-design talent in the Bay).

From jeans and a tee with a twist to the perfect way to style a leather jacket, these looks are straight up Cali perfection.
