Welcome to On the Racked, where Racked SF editor Kristen Philipkoski shares the top fashion and retail news of the week.
SAN FRANCISCO—This is an exciting week at Racked SF, because we've launched voting in our first-ever Hottest Trainer competition.

Check out all the trainer profiles, and check back next week for round two!
SAN FRANCISCO—Fall is coming, and it's time to get organized. Here are 11 stores that can help.
SAN FRANCISCO—We'd never tell you not to wear white after Labor Day, but just in case you play by the old school rules, here's lots of white to pack in over the next week and a half.
