Summer is all about keeping your cool, whether you’re working out, eating out, vacationing or showing up to collect an award. We offer a few suggestions along those lines, including taking a fashion cue from a Golden State Warrior for a formal summer look.


The haute seat
Among the most glam design features at the just-opened Petit Marlowe, the new Parisian-inspired wine bar and oysterette from hot San Francisco restaurateurs Anna Weinberg and James Nicholas (the Cavalier, Leo’s Oyster Bar), are the supple, creamy-pink leather banquettes. With decor designed by Ken Fulk, and much of it procured on a buying trip to the Paris flea market, the leather was custom made, inspired by a pair of Coco Chanel’s antique driving gloves. What could be more ooh la la than that? 234 Townsend St., S.F., www.petitmarlowesf.com

The ear candy
If there’s one accessory to seek out this summer, it’s the colorful, fringey tassel earring — whether you’re planning a hot-weather getaway or not. We like San Francisco jewelry designer Margaret Elizabeth’s version, which are designed by Meg Shackleton and crafted in Jaipur, India, with semiprecious stones like aqua chalcedony (the Avery, $128, at left), and labradorite, moonstone and lapis (the Laurel, $228). The earrings are made from sterling silver and 24K gold, ensuring they’re no flash in the pan. 2230 Chestnut St., 3334 Sacramento St., S.F., or https://www.margaretelizabeth.com.

The player
Golden State Warrior Draymond Green may have won the first-ever NBA defensive player of the year prize at the inaugural NBA Awards, but some sports fans called foul on Green’s red-carpet look on social media. The 6-foot-7 power forward was extremely fashion forward with his choice: An aqua Saint Laurent dinner jacket paired with tuxedo shorts and skull-and-cross bone embellished velvet evening slippers by Del Toro. Style applauds Green’s sartorial risk-taking: The aqua hue is elegant for the summer, and let’s face it, the man knows he looks good in shorts. We’d love to see some of Green’s Twitter fashion critics express their displeasure to his face, once someone fetches a ladder for them.

The pop opp
Busy people don’t have time to stare in their closets, pondering what to wear. For architecturally hip basics with ease, New York fashion company Aday has developed “technical tailored” womenswear to pull on and go (pullovers, bombers, tops, leggings, pants, $55-$165) in synthetic fibers (polyamides, neoprenes) that don’t wrinkle, tear or absorb sweat. Its Simplicity Tour hits San Francisco’s Mission District with a pop-up July 13-17 with Simplifier Sessions on simplifying one’s life. A full slate of activities — fun runs, breakfasts and happy hours — can be found at http://bit.ly/2ueT0CN. RSVPs advised. 530 Hampshire St. #306.
