Fact: Spring in S.F. is a bit of a whirlwind, weather-wise.

And this season, we're seeing the addition of sleeves on our favorite lengthy mainstay. Throw a sleeve on it and you’ve got warmth, comfort, and cuteness in a snap — truly S.F.-perfect. From flowy sheer numbers to punchy photo prints, you can trust these 15 floor-sweeping frocks to take you from brunch in the Mission to a stroll along the windy Embarcadero in a millisecond. Click through our slideshow and get ready to shed those layers — suddenly, it really does feel like the best spring yet.
