Denim Style: San Francisco Festival Style

I mentioned it earlier this summer. San Francisco is special. If you are hitting the music festival circuit this summer, you’re right to just pack a slew of denim shorts and tees. What else do you need, right? Well, if you’re heading to San Francisco’s largest music festival, Outside Lands, you’ll need a lot more. If you want to stay for the evening headlining acts you will need to be prepared for weather that gets downright wintry, with wind coming from the cold Pacific. Seriously consider carrying layers to pile on later.

Here are some suggestions, so that weather won’t make you regret your fashion choices:

  1. A denim shirt shirt would look great either by itself or under a blazer. Pile on bling and scarves to liven up the blazer. If you wear a skirt, either wear or bring tights to slip-on later.
  2. If you’re still wearing denim shorts, remember that they’re just an accent in your Outside Lands outfit. You’ll still need tights, a cardigan and maybe a jacket too.
  3. Consider wearing a jersey cardigan over a tee and bringing a leather jacket for the late night winds.
  4. A denim vest is perfect for this weather. Mix-up the high low with a sweatshirt, leggings, flats, a great bag, and you’re all set for Outside Lands!
