As Fall 2017 fashion finds its way into the stores, the weather in San Francisco couldn’t be more indecisive, always playing by its own rules. But even if ‘fall’ is a fuzzy term in the local dictionary, the season always brings on¬†a back-to-the-grind routine and serves as a great excuse to get a wardrobe refresh.

Looking for new outfits to get jazzed about heading into class? Or want to put a spin on your work closet? These 5 new local boutiques await.

Modern Citizen

Modern Citizen is a nationwide authority on smart work wear, casual separates and soft knitted dresses. Now, you can smell and touch all of the following as the brand’s new (and only) physical store opened its doors a couple of months ago on Union Street, luring shoppers with pristine backgrounds and¬†displays begging to be Instagrammed. Put it on your radar if you need a work wardrobe remix.

Acne Studios

The Swedish brand, standing for minimalist chic, recently opened its new San Francisco outpost by Union Square. It’s about time, as Acne‘s aesthetic couldn’t be more fitting in this city of uniforms and base colors. Come for the impressive, Golden Gate Bridge-red accents, stay for the oversized coats, very San Francisco-friendly sweaters and un-boring denim.

Everlane Lab

To¬†the savvy San Francisco fashionista, Everlane needs no introduction. The signature loafers, tote bags and cropped tops are everywhere you look, from the sophisticated blogger to the no-frills coding maven. With a huge online following, Everlane finally decided to go brick and mortar a year ago, welcoming shoppers to its airy and chic ‘lab’. Need to stock up on everlasting basics, trustworthy accessories and, as of this month, fairly priced denim? Head here.

One of San Francisco’s better kept little secrets, this new-ish jewelry store has you covered with¬†elegant bracelets, earrings and rings in affordable prices. After basing itself as an e-commerce success, Soko, which is based in San Francisco, opened its flagship store in Potrero Hill a year ago. All the pieces are handmade in Kenya, and it wouldn’t be a San Francisco brand if there wasn’t a social premise – the company uses an app to¬†help artisans promote their products.
