In Character: Sloane Peterson

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

image

image

image

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

Next Level: Chill Pencil Skirts

image

Pencil skirts tend to feel so business-y—like the jumping-off point for a commercial from Mastercard (or, lately, Secret). Why so serious? Here, four ways to give the look a chill pill. —erica

LEVEL I: If you really want to go crazy, pair this Altuzarra take with a striped top.

LEVEL II: This Rag & Bone guy is a denim skirt for a grown-up (that’s you).

LEVEL III: The beat-up stitching motif on this 3.1 Phillip Lim sucker is way cooler than any of that weird distressing and whiskering that was once all the rage.

LEVEL IV: Spring colors, from Current/Elliott! Because how ready are you for bare legs?

Get your “Next Level” fix, here and now.

Next Level: Fancy Mules

image

Don’t call these guys clogs—they might get offended. Get the scoop on four pairs ready to hang with your most festive get-ups. —erica

LEVEL I: Jeffrey Campbell does restrained (who knew?!) with slick patent and a low heel.

LEVEL II: A stripe of silver fit for a superhero? Check, 3.1 Phillip Lim, check.

LEVEL III: No, we’re not done with animal prints. Especially when they come in the form of a Jenni Kayne pointy toe.

LEVEL IV: Tibi’s got a whole lot going on—and yet these bedazzled Tibi suckers still work in a big way.

Take your “Next Level” consumption to the next level.

Weather Vain: San Antonio, Texas - 55 and Overcast

image

Oh, to be in Texas this time of year. Here’s how I’d wanna dress if I suddenly became a San Antonio girl today. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Pamela Love bracelet that’s like V-day just a smidge early.

+ A sweater that’s not afraid to go big, from 3.1 Phillip Lim.

+ A Reece Hudson wristlet, with enough cash shoved inside for a stop at Pearl Brewery Farmers’ Market.

+ Kicks—c/o Won Hundred—for bopping around Southtown.

+ A Bande des Quatres ring that would look damn good snuggled up with a glass of rioja at The Monterey.

+ Acne wool sweatpants—that leave plenty of room for queso.

Oh, we got some recs for Dallas, Houston, and Austin, too.

In Character: Lilly Kane

You know what this frigid winter weather is perfect for? Watching all of Veronica Mars. I mean, T minus not that many days ‘til the movie comes out, you guys! But don’t worry: Once you get going, it’ll take you no time at all to plow through it. You might not get any sleep, but you will know who killed that feisty Lilly Kane (A.K.A. Amanda Seyfried)—and that’s what’s important. —erica

A 3.1 Phillip Lim tee fit for a Neptune High pep squad fundraiser.

A T by Alexander Wang pink bikini—for wooing an 09er, a PCHer, and a movie star.

A prom dress from Haute Hippie that does NOT get the Celeste Kane seal of approval.

We know what you’re thinking: What about Logan? We got him covered, too.
