Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Next time visiting friends ask for suggestions on what to pack, instead of a detailed response that allows for all SF seasonal possibilities (meaning fog, heat, chill—all in one day), send them this handy guide from The Bold Italic. The best advice, really, is that no matter the month, expect SF to hover around 60°F. This means shorts are usually out (unless worn with tights) and layers are a necessity. Of course, we should all be prepared for the random, glorious, sunny day (or days, in the case of this past weekend) on which we can bare it all. But no telling when it'll happen. In SF, all seasons are fair game.
