Your Guide to Capannina San Francisco: Date Night Attire

Now that you know about my favorite Italian food in San Francisco, it’s time to discuss the appropriate date night attire. According to OpenTable, the dress code at Capannina is “casual elegant,” but I prefer to call it 5’clock chic! With dinner service from 5-10pm Sunday through Thursday, and 5-10:30pm on the weekends, come as you are and leave happy as a clam.

I love restaurants that are tasty and “chill.” We frequent Capannina during the week nights on the patio in “work clothes,” and Saturdays inside dressed to kill. In the life of Kelsey and Jonathan Kaplan, work clothes range from barre garb, scrubs, slacks, to sport coats. The point I am trying to make is that it doesn’t really matter what you wear! Regardless, I feel my best when I am over dressed. With that said, I always take advantage of an opportunity to wear something spicy, like this leopard jacket.

Last fall I bought a beautiful leopard and emerald faux fur coat in Italy. The ROI was great on this item as it became my go-to winter coat. Fortunately or unfortunately, it is no longer cold enough to wear faux fur in San Francisco. This lightweight leopard print jacket is a great springtime addition to my date night attire. It looks expensive but looks can be deceiving. At H&M, you can purchase this item for only $69!

Photos do not do this sassy jacket justice. The metallic print is super sharp and appears custom made. I receive so many compliments from women of all ages during dinner at Capannina. On the versatility scale, I rate it a 10. You can wear it as an overcoat, a dress coat, or as pictured above with a bodysuit. As an attempt to balance out the tight top on my upper half, I paired this look with destroyed girlfriend jeans (last seen here). Hope you enjoy my date night attire, but even if you don’t, you still have to try Capannina!

    […] ask yourself how you plan to wear it. Are you wearing it under a fabulous jacket? If so, rayon or cutout bodysuits are great alternatives to the traditional camisole. Are you wearing it solo with jeans or a skirt? […]
