13 Summer Trends Translated For S.F.’s Chilly Temps!

The days of prancing around in flimsy frocks are pretty limited in S.F., thanks to our sometimes bone-chilling, non-existent summer. We know we so-often lament this factoid, but it’s a shame, really, that so many open-toed, short, and sheer pieces have to stay hidden in our closets in July and August.
But, to avoid major seasonal depression, we think there are two things you can do. First, unfollow those Instagram friends who seem to own only bikinis and are soaking up 80-degree weather on the reg. And then, take note of these 13 hot, of-the-moment trends reworked for S.F.’s unique summertime situation. While throwing on tights and a cardigan is an obvious answer, when Karl the Fog wants to play, there are more sartorially savvy solutions that will let you shine this season, no matter what the weatherman has to say about it.
