Weather Vain: Boise, Idaho - 79 and Clear

image

Can you believe this weather in Idaho right now? Oh, boy…see. —erica

+ Tiny ruby Blanca Monros Gomez earrings, as classic as a PB and honey sandwich from Bleubird.

+ A 3.1 Phillip Lim dress that really takes advantage of this shockingly warm October weather.

+ A ring, from Artasan, that would look stellar cozying up to a fork and diving into the tasting menu at State & Lemp.

+ Ready for a stroll around Camel’s Back Park? Because these Ash boots are.

+ A Clare V. clutch that’s, well, clutch in most every situation.

+ Shades from Cheap Monday—so you can check out all the happenings in Hyde Park.

There’s a whole lot more where this came from!

Admit it: A lot of your nineties outfit inspo comes from teenagers, fictional or otherwise (see: Rayanne Graff, Drew Barrymore, Cher Horowitz, Fiona Apple). But if you’re looking for someone who really nails the I’m-trying-to-be-an-adult-ok? thing, Rachel Green’s your girl—especially during season one of Friends, which premiered 20 years ago this week (WHAT). —erica

Next Level: Contrast-Heel Boots

image

Are these some good-looking boots? Oh, heel yes. Four chances to add a little something extra along with that height. —erica

LEVEL I: Aaaand, suddenly the classic shape of these caramel guys from Loeffler Randall gets way more interesting.

LEVEL II: A clunky black heel keeps this Opening Ceremony style from looking too disco-era.

LEVEL III: Rupert Sanderson delivers a hit of metallic pink that would make any outfit.

LEVEL IV: Is the dusty mauve of this 3.1 Phillip Lim creation what dreams are made of? I think yes.

Get over here for more “Next Level.”

LEVEL II: Alexander Wang does vaguely sporty so dang well.

Epitome of cool girlfriend, this one. And you know what else? She was working a man repeller look long before we even had a name for that—like, a whole 25 years before. Here’s a Sloane get-up appropriate for a day skippin’ school with Ferris and Cameron. —erica

Classic-as-they-come Alexander Wang x Linda Farrow sunglasses that look best in a 1961 Ferrari convertible.

A white leather jacket by Acne that looks just right exploring the Art Institute.

Long, loose 3.1 Phillip Lim shorts that would fly with Mr. Rooney’s dress-code policy, no prob.

Next Level: Long-ish Shorts

image

Who wears short shorts? Not everyone. And if you’re looking to keep your upper thighs to yourself, here are four ways to do so. —erica

LEVEL I: Denim cut-offs—but in a totally unexpected way, thanks to Vladimir Karaleev

LEVEL II: These cotton Band of Outsiders suckers almost look like board shorts—and would be killer with a stacked sandal.

LEVEL III: Um, laser-cut polka-dots—that’s the 3.1 Phillip Lim way.

LEVEL IV: So loose and girly at once! How about these Steven Alan guys with a just-cropped top and a straw hat?

More “Next Level!” Come and get it.

Next Level: Shocking Pink

image

Think pink! No, like, REALLY pink. Here are four ways to do bubblegum with a bang. —erica

LEVEL I: Oooh, so polished with a pair of jeans, Amanda Uprichard!

LEVEL II: Antiqued brass keeps the bright-as-they-come stones in these Dannijo studs from looking too Barbie. 

LEVEL III: What do you call this Jenni Kayne dress besides perfect, really?

LEVEL IV: 3.1 Phillip Lim delivers the most serious, double-breasted cut in the most fun-lovin’, look-at-me hue.

Want four more? Have at it.

Track Star: Katy B

The Vibe: Katy B is one of the most important voices in British pop music right now—yah, that’s right. Her new album, Little Red, is a mix of all her mediums—dubstep, ballad, pop, and grunge. She loves a good romper and some bright colors—not that anything can hold a candle to her fiery hair.

The One-Song Intro: “Crying For No Reason”

The Look, Recreated: This psychedelic shift dress from Kristinit, this tie-dye caftan by Mary Meyer, and this 3.1 Phillip Lim fringe leather jacket. maitri mehta

Listen up: There’s a whole lot more “Track Star” to be had.

Next Level: Leather Backpacks

image

Backpacks have been, like, a thing for awhile now, but it seems like all of a sudden they are getting all leather-fied. These are four want to hang out with you and your shoulders. —erica

LEVEL I: Ahh, a Rag & Bone take that Felicity would have been totally into.

LEVEL II: Polished, right? That Phillip Lim knows what he’s doing.

LEVEL III: This Kara design's the size of one of those Prada backpacks you were desperado for back when, but that cross-hash design? It's actually mesh.

LEVEL IV: Just because it’s leather doesn’t mean it has to be fancy. Illesteva knows how to keep things chill.

Track Star: Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius

The Vibe: Though they’re not twins or even sisters, Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, the vocalists for the effervescent band Lucius, are all about the double-trouble. Their matchy mod look is almost spooky, but they pull it off in a big way.

The One-Song Intro: “Turn it Around”

The Look, Recreated: This 3.1 Phillip Lim black-and-white dress, these wedge mary janes by Jeffrey Campbell, and these nutso sunglasses from Linda Farrow. —maitri mehta
