Next Level: Beet

image

Cranberry sounds so…early aughts. And maroon has a certain team spirit vibe. But beet? Now that feels right for fall—maybe paired with outwear in a nice goat cheese or sherry vinegar. (I know–ha, ha.) —erica

LEVEL I: One of those perfect sweaters, c/o Isabel Marant, that can do apple-picking or office.

LEVEL II: A so-sleek Alexander Wang purse that would give even your grungiest jeans some polish.

LEVEL III: A dress from Carven that would look almost impossibly put-together with sheer black tights.

LEVEL IV: Opening Ceremony shoes that put a little stomp in your step.

More of this “Next Level” madness!

Next Level: Bees

image

Beetles have had their moment. Spiders, too. Now there’s a new insect on the block. Four takes that mean bees-ness. —erica

LEVEL I: Simple and to-the-point—nailed it, Delfina Delettrez.

LEVEL II: Going a little crazy for the color scheme of this Lizzie Fortunato clutch.

LEVEL III: This peplum top from Mother of Pearl is sweet as honey, no?

LEVEL IV: With this Tom Binns creation on, your neck practically becomes a hive.

More mashups! Right here, right now.

Weather Vain: Bozeman, Montana - 90 and Clear

image

Not to get all Dixie Chicks on you or anything, but this time of year makes us yearn for wide-open spaces. Like, say, Montana, with all that National Park-ness…and lack of population density. Here’s how to embrace a day in Bozeman. —erica

+ A bangle from K/LLER that feels completely appropriate for a night at Plonk Wine Bar.

+ The ideal Ancient Greek sandals to slip on after hiking the M.

+ An Acne dress that’s plenty loose—in case you go hard at Granny’s Gourmet Donuts.

+ Cowboy poetry?! If you score some at Country Bookshelf, this AANDD bag has room.

+ Ahlem shades to take in all those Big Sky views.

More of this! Lots more! Here.

Baggu now makes a bomb all-weather bag. Yes, it’s great for carrying surf supplies and all that, but it’s also pretty key for going to the airport in the pouring rain (and getting 36% less angry about it). —erica

Couple Up: Mandy Moore and Zach Braff

image

When these two broke up, Mandy Moore wrote, oh, most of an album, Wild Horses, about him. Sample lyrics: “And I know you loved me in your way / I’m looking forward to looking back on these days.” Well, here’s to looking back, then? —erica

Mandy Moore: Tom Ford aviators, a cozy-looking Tess Giberson sweater, and a Rebecca Minkoff bag.

Zach Braff: Worn-in jeans from Ron Herman, a short-sleeve, just-dorky Steven Alan shirt, and a York St. by J. Press belt with a big, fat buckle.

Double down on your “Couple Up.” Right here.

Next Level: Hexagons

image

Hexagons are having a moment and not just ‘cause the World Cup is this summer (you know, soccer balls!). Here, the shape of things to come. —erica

LEVEL I: The cutest (and shiniest) little wallet we ever did see, from IMAGO-A.

LEVEL II: Daaaang, Jerome Dreyfuss really knows how to do graphic.

LEVEL III: The print—and the skinny little straps—on this Tibi tank kill.

LEVEL IV: Because, let’s be honest, your ears are tired of circles, and Eddie Borgo knows it.

What’s next? More “Next Level!”

Weather Vain: Lockhart, Texas - 98 and Partly Cloudy

image

Summer means barbecue, and barbecue means Lockhart, Texas. Here’s what to wear today in pit country. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ The airiest linen dress you can find, from T by Alexander Wang.

+ A necklace by K/LLER that would look equally at-home in Austin, 30 minutes away.

+ A Komono watch—an homage to the Southwest Museum of Clocks and Watches.

+ A cuff from Dannijo that’s nearly as satisfying as a scoop of Century Sundae ice cream by Blue Bell.

+ A Kara bag with room for a score or two from Sol & Luna Antiques & Art.

+ Kelsi Dagger sandals that will still be comfortable after you gorge on salty, fatty brisket at Smitty’s Market.

Wanna mess with Texas? Head this way.
