S.F. Street Fashion: Spring Trend Report

This week on the street I spotted lots of trendy ladies sporting very of-the-moment looks. One of my favorite things about fashion is the trickle-down effect from runway to reality. As Meryl Streep famously schools Anne Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada, thus it is in life as well: The sweater is not blue, turquoise, or lapis, but rather cerulean. (Shh, don't question the authority of Meryl or my taste in movies!) It's exciting how quickly that effect takes place these days; I'm already noticing lots of things from the fall runway shows popping up in stores and on the street.

Flowy, wide-leg trousers, collar necklaces, and booties are some of the flavors of the month in this week's post. So let's get down to business.

First, how unfairly fabulous are these girls' hairstyles? It's because they work at diPietro Todd, one of San Francisco's most upscale salons, and they probably get it done for free.

They also perfectly illustrate my point abut flowy trousers and booties. I've spotted ankle boots absolutely everywhere (on that note, people on Muni do not like it when you try to surreptitiously photograph their shoes) and I believe they'll continue to be "a thing" throughout spring. As for the pants, those have been cropping up on the runway for quite a while (Missoni, Max Mara, and Ralph Lauren have all done versions in the last two years) but they've been slow to catch on because they're one of those things that doesn't flatter every figure.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
