This year, bright and bold are words to live by when selecting your spring shell, and taking on those spring showers. We scoped out seven lightweight options that are as practical as they are sporty-chic.
This spring, it's raining shoes and color. Flats, platforms and wedges -- oh my! -- are getting pumped-up with royal blues, emerald greens, oranges, hot pinks and neon yellows. As dramatic as they seem, the big, bold hues are often softened with constract cork and natural leather, making them perfectly suitable for everyday wear.
It's sweater weather – no doubt about it – and cardigans are the answer. The versatility factor alone makes them a wardrobe essential for every San Francisco man. And don't let anyone tell you a button-down knit isn't manly, because it is. In fact, men's cardigans are stylish, practical and quite flattering when worn correctly. Here's how.
Let's face it, briefcases aren't for everyone. In fact, they aren't ideal for most modern men. Enter the rising rucksack: mixing schoolyard nostalgia and vintage design appeal into one hyper-functional bag.
Last Saturday, I caught up with local artist, Charmaine Olivia, at the opening of her first SF solo show, Ritual, (on display through February 4) at The Shooting Gallery. The artist donned a gorgeous, black, floor-length dress with cut-out details, Jeffrey Campbell pumps and her signature mix of eclectic jewelry (some of which is currently on display as part of her show).
A new year and sunny skies ahead -- January doesn't get much better than this. Inspired by the summery weather, we thought we'd round up a few of our favorite on-trend sunglasses.
If you swear by the hard rules of fashion, then consider this your last call for wearing white. Fortunately, this Labor Day weekend, the forecast is set for sunny skies and an easy, breezy 70-degrees. So go on, wear those whites while you still can.
While the forecast is promising, if you're spending time on the windy waters, or looking for a nice day-to-night ensemble, opt for a maxi dress and pack a light sweater. Add spice with a few vibrant accessories, a finish with messy braid and a coral red lipstick. Bon weekend.
This week's look is inspired by the Conservatory of Flowers exhibit, Wicked Plants: Botanical Rogues & Assassins, currently on display in the special exhibits gallery. The exhibit is built around the poisonous-as-they-are-pretty plants in Amy Stewart's 2009 New York Times Bestseller, Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln's Mother & Other Botanical Atrocities, which documents historically murderous plants.
Check out the exhibit this summer, and show your enthusiasm with a wicked floral print. From unconventional sunnies to kitschy Marc by Marc Jacobs wedges, we pulled together a collection of florals to accent any outfit.
