Warm Up With Academy of Art's SF Winter Style

Baby it's cold outside--and we all know how difficult it can be put together a polished look when braving freezing temperatures (ok, it's rarely freezing in San Francisco, but it's chilly enough!).

Take cues from the latest fashion editorial to come out of the Academy of Art University and pile on layers of thin knits to keep warm while still keeping on trend.

A collaboration between the School of Fashion and Photography, the editorial was entirely student-produced and features one-of-a-kind student garments seen at AAU's most recent SF and NY fashion shows. Inspired by the diverse urban style from our chilly city, these looks sum up San Francisco's eclectic winter fashions.
