Top tip on summer style in San Francisco: wear layers!

Summer in San Francisco is a fickle lover. Some days are cold, some days are sunny, and some will start out at a comfortable 73 degrees only to get trumped by a blanket of thick, marine-layer fog around 4 in the afternoon. Mark Twain famously remarked (though it’s unverified) that “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco” (FYI San Franciscans love to repeat this quote on foggy summer days). So when the weather can’t make up it’s mind, your clothes must adapt accordingly, and stylishly. Here’s a perfect example of a chic summer layered-look starring the neutral pinks of sugarbomb gloss and blush,¬†styled by our friends at Madewell.
