Track Star: Alynda Lee Segarra of Hurray for the Riff Raff

The Vibe: Small Town Heroes, the newest album from the folk band Hurray for the Riff Raff, is filled with a whole lot of feminist rage and resignation from the singer Alynda Lee Segarra. She sounds pained and complex, but her look is a little more straightforward: think fifties housewife with a bone to pick.

The One-Song Intro: “I Know it’s Wrong (But That’s Alright)”

The Look, Recreated: This sleeveless denim shirt from Cheap Monday, this retro dress by Rachel Antonoff, and this floral pencil skirt by Derek Lam. maitri mehta

Weather Vain: Memphis, Tennessee - 54 and Partly Cloudy

image

Beale Street, Graceland, and some lovely weather—here’s how to take full advantage of Memphis on a rockin’ day like this one. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ The ideal in-between weather trench from Jenni Kayne.

+ An Alexander Wang bag in a blushy pink that would fit right in at The Peabody Hotel

+ Notify jeans that would be totally unaffected by BBQ stains.

+ Earrings, by Cold Picnic, that are chill enough for a late night at The Cove (with a whole bunch of oysters).

+ For a meandering stroll through Midtown: a pair of Thierry Lasry sunglasses.

+ Pour La Victoire wedges sturdy enough for some after-dinner bocce at Hog & Hominy.

+ The kind of Base Range tee you can-slash-should wear anywhere, any day of the week.

In Character: Brandon Walsh

Dylan may have been the 90210er who induced the most heart palpitations, but there’s something so reliably appealing about Brandon—his vaguely James Dean style, the way he dealt with Brenda’s antics, and, yah, that hair. —erica

image

A Save Khaki henley—for late nights working with Andrea on the West Beverly Blaze.

image

A Scotch & Soda jacket that can be tossed on over a Peach Pit uniform.

Octagonal House of Harlow sunglasses for checking out convertible-driving CA girls.

Whoa, get a load of all of these “In Character” posts.

Couple Up: Britney and Justin

Because sometimes a relationship dies but its style lives on.

image

The image of Britney and Justin in their denim-on-denim-on-denim-on-denim ensembles is burned into my brain—and it can’t be just me. Let’s pay tribute to the couples costumes outfits they wore to the 2001 American Music Awards, shall we? (Also: How was this only in 2001?!) —erica

Brit: A glitzy Fallon choker, an Acne denim dress with some frayed action, and a Lady Grey chain belt.

JT: An Alain denim blazer, patchwork Kenzo jeans, and A.J. Morgan sunglasses…at night.

Oh, yes, we are fully on-board with this whole denim outerwear movement. Because our jean jackets are seeking companionship. Thanks, Dusen Dusen. —erica

Weather Vain: Porto, Portugal - 68 and Partly Cloudy

image

Doesn’t it feel like it’s time for a little European getaway? Here’s what to wear if you’re lucky enough to be spending a day in the Unvanquished City. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Loeffler Randall bag that can hang with the city’s abundant mosaics. 

+ The Row shades—to watch those boats carry port along the Douro.

+ A Hope shirt that makes a perfect backdrop for the scarf you’re bound to scoop up at A Vida Portuguesa.

+ Slim Seaworthy earrings that won’t weigh you down as you explore Foz. 

+ Y.R.U. shoes that mesh with the slick, beachy design of Praia Da Luz

+ Worn-in Rebecca Taylor jean shorts that make diving into a bowl of mussels at Esplanada Marisqueira a little less stressful.

Someone’s going to need to tell us when our love of denim goes too far. But, judging by this little skirt, Raquel Allegra's not going to be that person. —erica
