San Francisco is a fashionable city, and we look good riding the bus. To celebrate that, we’d like to start a little fun post that we call Muni Fashion Friday. Here’s how it works: submit a photo of a fashionable rider on and around Muni, and you can win a prize from our post sponsor. Our first sponsor is Secession Arts and Design, where you’ll find mixed-media art, beautiful clothes, and jewelry.
The deadline for submission for our first Fashion Friday will be Thursday, Nov. 18.
To give you some inspiration, here are some fantastic photos of fashionable Muni riders taken by Racine Serrano. Racine is a student at San Francisco State University. She said:
“In a city where fashion can be spun any which way, I found individuals whose personal attention to detail forces those around them to pay attention and observe the story their personal style tells. Some people are blessed with not only a keen sense of fashion and a great eye for what works well together — whether it be color, prints, or patterns; they also have the confidence that exudes far past the garments they so skillfully engineer together.”
In the photo above, James Taylor, a student at City College of San Francisco, waits for the F while sipping his iced green tea. His military-inspired style was sourced by H&M, American Apparel shorts, vintage hat and belt, and Marc Jacobs boots.
Racine caught up with more fashionable Muni riders:
