Faces of San Francisco: Street Style

San Francisco is a city seeped in history. The Beat generation, the Summer of Love, a city that drew the counterculture to live and create freely and openly. People that don’t live in San Francisco think of these images; hippies, the Haight, the free spirited individual… but what you really see when you walk the city (only 7 miles x 7 miles) is the beautiful diversity of people and their own stories. There is no “book” or “rule of thumb” when it comes to pinpointing a style of San Francisco. The faces here are a beautiful array of beauty and love, of happy people that feel blessed to live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

Double denim still rocks, bright vintage frocks with combat boots, head to toe black, tattoos and ethnic jewelry… there is no stencil found here, and I for one… LOVE that.

You are completely right about San Francisco, which is probably why it’s one of my favorite cities. The styles were my favorite part of being there… the diversity, the colors, the tolerance. SF even managed to trump Buenos Aires, which is pretty impressive imo. It’s the height of individualism that draws me there. Nothing like sitting on a bench with a latte and just watching the styles go by.

San Francisco is my second home. I love going up there (from SD) alone, seeing the coast, and getting lost in the city. Amazing Indian food on every block and live music in the park. It’s one of the best <3 Thanks for sharing love.
