Don't Go To The Bay Without These S.F. Staples

There are certain pieces that are wardrobe essentials for everyone (like these three closet staples), but I propose that every locale has its own style flavor or a uniform if you will. So, while it's a bit presumptuous of me, I venture to propose my breakdown of the San Francisco Uniform.
Sure, this basic style could apply to any number of regions outside of the Bay, but those of us living in the City know all too well that the lack of seasons and abundance of micro-climates mean we can be found sporting petty much the same style all year-round.
You have to be ready for whatever weather you might encounter from the sunny Mission District to the cold and foggy Outer Sunset. And while there's a huge range of options on any given day, I think these basics sum up the essentials and capture the spirit of our fair city. So, before your next trip to our humble city, make sure to pack these S.F. essentials.

A pair of high-rise skinnies is a fashionable essential no matter where you live, but with S.F.'s temperamental microclimates, you'll be wearing your skinnies through all the seasons.

A simple button-up blouse in silk or chambray makes an excellent layering piece. Roll up the sleeves while the sun is out, and add a cardigan when the fog rolls in.

Whether it's the middle of summer or the dead of winter, a San Francisco girl can never be caught without a sweater or a light jacket. Even on the warmest of days, you might find yourself stuck in the chilly fog a few blocks away.

A unique statement piece or one-of-a-kind vintage find is definitely a San Francisco essential. And you know you'll find some awesome vintage gems when browsing the stalls at the Alameda Flea Market.
