Maxi skirts are the absolute perfect wardrobe item for San Francisco. On those rare days when it hits the high 70s here...that means sundresses, skirts, picnics and bocce ball.
The tricky part about dressing for warm weather in San Francisco is that the fog inevitably rolls in and the wind picks up. That’s where the maxi skirt (or dress) comes in. Due to it’s length, the maxi helps keep my legs warm as the chilly evening weather comes in, but still maintains its warm weather feel. And even better, depending on the waist band, a maxi skirt can also also double as a maxi or midi dress. This adds a depth of versatility to my closet and helps me creatively extend the life of items in my closet.
I admit, I will always gravitate to a maxi skirt or dress for a warm weather brunch or picnic. But then again, that's because I know that our signature cooler weather, will be arriving shortly.
