No matter what season it may be in San Francisco, you can pretty much bet you'll regret going bare-legged. The wind is sure to whip up or the temperature will unexpectedly drop—and that's especially true with the occasionally (and deceivingly) lovely December temperatures that can change at the drop of a hat. So be prepared with an ample stock of cozy tights—either wear them or stash them in your bag! Here are 10 places in San Francisco to find some pretty (or plain) ones.

Legs still cold? Check out our tights shopping guides from New York, Philly, Boston, Chicago, and LA, not to mention Racked National's guide to warm legwear online.
