San Francisco Street Style – Fashion Accessories

A couple days ago I wrote about street style in San Francisco, but I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t fixate on fashion accessories. This post is all about the interesting, practical, and unusual ways the people who live in the City by the Bay accessorize their clothes.

Cozy Hats

Hats are worn by pretty much everyone in San Francisco.  It’s can be rather cold, so a hand knitted something is always appropriate, no matter how unusual.

Practical Shoes

San Francisco is a hilly, beautiful city and everyone walks everywhere. As a result footwear is almost always of the practical sort. I noticed leather flip-flops were a favorite.

Fashion Accessories – Purses, backpacks and other totes

I love purses, and the ones slung over the shoulders of the people I saw on the street in San Francisco were both practical and unique. The woman in the photo below carried both a leather shoulder bag and a big floral tote, because you can never have enough space when you’re on the go!

A large purple backpack is a good choice when traveling by skateboard.

Los Angeles isn’t the only place where women choose to express their style with a status tote.

The super-long shoulder bag worn with super long hair.

But my favorite bag seen on the street was this one-shoulder see-though yellow pack worn over an all-black outfit.  Loved it!

For more fashion in The City, check out my review of the fashion exhibit I saw while I was there: “Balenciaga and Spain”.

      Thanks so much! Only it’s not really me, it’s my husband. He’s the wizard behind the camera.
