San Francisco music festivals require a unique dress code to cope with our oft-talked about “microclimates”. Basically, the weather can go from gorgeous and sunny to bone-chilling cold in just a few hours. This means you need layers, layers, layers. I’ve taken to carrying black leggings in my purse any time I wear a dress. Once it gets chilly I can slip them on and avoid goosebumps that ruin my summer ready legs.
Another essential is a light jacket. Even with long sleeves, like the jean dress in these photos, you’ll wish you had another layer once the sun starts to set. I have a Brooks running jacket that I love because I can smush it into my purse. Of course, you could also go with something more stylish.
I almost always wear my hair back, because the wind will whip my long hair into a nest if I don’t. Whenever I wear a fishtail braid, strangers stop my and tell me how much they love it. It’s a crowd pleaser and very easy to do.As demonstrated by Sarah, scarves and mittens are also a San Francisco music festival style essential. You’ll thank me later.Thanks a million to Sarah for snapping these photos as well. And for putting up for me when I say things like “What do I do with my faaace?”. #realfashionblogger
