The Social Hour: San Francisco

The Social Hour
Where do all the pretty things go after work? Where do they sit down to a memorable meal, catch a drink with friends, or dance, dance, dance? What are their face-time beauty secrets? For all the answers, we partnered with Dior and some of the chicest ladies we know for nightspot recommendations, winning wardrobe tips, and killer beauty strategies for any social-hour situation.
By the Bay, writer Jennie Lodge holds down one of the most popular style sites in the area, the Going West Blog. First an account of her adoration for S.F., it’s developed into a constantly chic and cheery look at the best in food, fashion, and fun the City by the Bay has to offer. Naturally, we tapped her to expose S.F.'s best after-work spots and how to prep your look — from lips to shoes — for each one of them.

If you’re not growing, you’re dying — they say — and that goes for your brain, too. Naturally, an evening of higher education calls for minimal yet still pretty makeup; perhaps a nude lip and your favorite savvy outfit to conjure those memories of academia.
The Social Hour
Evenings out with your BFFs aren’t just fun — they’re therapeutic. Whether you’re bound to watch your pals sing their little hearts out at karaoke, enjoy an elegant dinner, or just sip Martinis over girl talk, it’s time to peacock a bit with a glam dress and a vibrant swipe of lipstick.
The Social Hour
Sometimes, you can’t be bothered with high-class, high-fashion haunts. A good ol' fashioned drive by at your most-loved watering holes can be just as fun as a night at any chic hotel bar. Rock a casual, cute look for comfort and confidence.
The Social Hour
There’s nothing like a blasting PA system to wash away the cares of the workday. Rock shows and DJ nights are also great opportunities to flaunt a little edge with leather accoutrements, bold lips, striking eyes, and big extra-tousled hair.
