Couple Up: Owen Wilson and Kate Hudson

image

If these two were a high-school couple, they would be pictured in the yearbook under the header “Best Beach Hair” (and, ok, probably “Best Smiles” too, those jerks). Here’s a tribute to those Owen-plus-Kate days of yesteryear… —erica

Owen Wilson: Super-dark Acne jeans, a navy Everlane polo, and a long-sleeve tee from James Perse.

Kate Hudson: Ripped Current/Elliott jeans, a Rachel Zoe vest (worn as a top), and a lariat necklace by Vanessa Mooney.

More match-ups right this way.

In Character: Sloane Peterson

image

image

image

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 

image

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

image

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

image

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

Couple Up: Claire Danes and Ben Lee

image

Did you listen to Ben Lee’s music for the first time because he was Claire Danes’s BF? Didya? We get it. They were just so…so…late-nineties, minimalist, living-in-Soho cool. —erica

Claire Danes: Open-back Alexander Wang sandals, a sleeveless turtleneck sweater from Yigal Azrouel, and perfect stovepipe khaki pants by Jason Wu.

Ben Lee: Black Acne pants, a loud, floral Vito Rhody shirt, and beaten-up Golden Goose sneakers

More nostalgic pairings to be had!

Weather Vain: Santa Barbara, California - 71 and Partly Cloudy

image

Now’s the time of year when we’re especially desperado to live in California—to have dependable weather that almost always qualifies as lovely. Here’s looking at you, Santa Barbara. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ An Ace & Jig top that you could totally throw on over a swimsuit when things heat up.

+ Perfect tortoise sunglasses—c/o The Row—to have on-hand at all times.

+ Boy by Band of Outsiders chinos—cuffed and ready to stroll throw the AVA Santa Barbara vineyards. 

+ A ring by A Peace Treaty that, with its triangle motif, pays tribute to the pizza slices (prosciutto and burrata, white anchovy and ricotta!) at Blue Tavern.

+ Walking shoes by Marais USA, down to hit Mission Historical Park.

+ An Acne jacket for when there’s a (sigh, perfect) chill in the air at night.

On the hunt for better weather? Start here.

A little bird told us that it’s time to start shopping for a prom dress. Ok, no, that’s not entirely how it went down: A little bird (named Iryna) emailed us and asked, “Would you want to help a sister out and offer some prom dress/general evening dress suggestions?” Well, here you go, gurl: 20 ideas—all by super-cool designers and all less than $300—to get you started. And for those of you whose prom memories are currently being mined for #tbt fodder, I present this: a trip to the big-dance attire archives with Laney Boggs, Brenda Walsh, and Josie Grossie. —erica

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.

Weather Vain: Cincinnati, Ohio - 14 and Mostly Cloudy

image

Man, it’s cold today in Cincy. So bundle up—and try not to let the chill hold you back. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A winter coat—from Suno—that’s more sleek than it is snowman.

+ A Baggu tote that coordinates with Metropole's seared radishes and  baked cranberry beans.

+ Knee-high boots, from Cynthia Vincent, for stomping around Over-the-Rhine.

+ A Eugenia Kim hat that shields as much of your noggin as possible.

+ An Isabel Marant sweater, ideal for cozying up for a movie at Esquire Theatre.

+ J Brand jeans that are laid-back (and worn-in) enough for a visit to Rhinegeist Brewery

+ A Jennie Kwon ring that won’t get in the way of any of your frigid-weather gear.

+ Acne gloves that would look great wrapped around a macchiato from Collective Espresso.

Track Star: Victoria Legrand of Beach House

image

image

image

The Vibe: If Sirens were around today, Beach House’s Victoria Legrand would be the head of their gang: Her voice is echoey and supernatural, and her style has a certain hard-to-pin-down allure, too.

The One-Song Intro: “Lazuli”

The Look, Recreated: This patterned jacket by Mara Hoffman, this checked dress from Rag & Bone, a delicate braided cuff from My Eagle Scout, and these Acne pony hair booties.

Check out all our “Track Star” finds, why don’t you?

Next Level: White Boots

image

Yah, these may not be as everyday-useful as those black chelsea boots you wear five days a week, but, hey, don’t you wanna switch things up sometimes? Four white-as-snow ways to do so. —erica

LEVEL I: These guys are so simple and yet so special, via Opening Ceremony.

LEVEL II: Well, zip-a-dee-doo-dah. Acne knows how to get things going.

LEVEL III: Loeffler Randall is well aware that black studs are cooler (and more wearable) than metal ones.

LEVEL IV: Can you tell these Alexander Wang boots are calf hair? I think the word you’re looking for is major.

More “Next Level!” Hey!
