Music lovers from near and far gathered last weekend in Golden Gate Park for the highly anticipated 5th Annual Outside Lands Music Festival. Sure, people may call it “San Fran’s Coachella,” but let’s be ultra clear about one thing: we’ll win the fog contest every time. But onto the fashion. While some donned the usual festival look of cut-off shorts and crop tops, most of the crowd went the cozier – and more comfortable – approach. From sweaters and feathers to maxis and flannel, Outside Lands was all about layers, casual rock chic and cool elegance. We have the photos to prove it.
Snapped in front of Creperie St. Germaine in SoMa: Svetlana Istrati. As she strolled through SoMa, Svetlana’s urban and playful ensemble exuded a casual chic. She answered some of our questions here.
Snapped at Sharon Meadow in Golden Gate Park: Kelsey Rugani. While at the 2012 Oyster Festival, Kelsey’s colorful, casual look stood out amid the sea of sandals and tee shirts. She answered some of our questions here.

How lucky are we? Back-to-back weekends of 70-degree weather means we’re all back out on the streets. The hunt for stylish San Franciscans on days like these is an easy one. Stationed outside and enjoying a coffee in North Beach, I watched the style parade as girls marched down Columbus Ave. Keep reading for a few outfits I snapped.
