Weather Vain: Chicago, Illinois - 44 With a Chance of Rain

image

+ An Each x Other trench as white as the tablecloths at Pearl Tavern.

+ Ah, these Dieppa Restrepo loafers! The color of some GT Fish & Oyster king crab legs.

+ The perfect, easy-fitting black silk pants c/o Raquel Allegra.

+ A Carven shirt just crisp and business-y enough for the West Loop.

+ What do you know: a two-finger ring, from K/LLER, that’s actually a breeze to wear.

+ A Jenni Kayne blazer in Cubs colors—cause it’s officially that time of year, guys.

+ Shoulder bags—not great for layers. A backpack like this Jerome Dreyfuss one—a whole lot better.

+ This Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer bracelet = just weird enough for the out-there cocktails from Aviary

Track Star: Frankie Rose

The Vibe: Frankie Rose has been in just about every girl-group you’ve loved in the past couple of years—Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls, and Dum Dum Girls. And she really shines on her solo album Interstellar, which is full of space-pop beats and her breathy vocals. She’s got a style that’s soft, mysterious, and full of black silk; it plays well with her dark hair and blood-red lips.

The One-Song Intro: “Know Me”

The Look, Recreated: This floral neoprene bodysuit from Shakuhachi, these coated jeans by April 77, these Dieppa Restrepo sleek all-black booties, and this Tucker black kimono dress. maitri mehta

Meet some chicks as talented and stylish as Frankie right here.

Weather Vain: Athens, Georgia - 68 and Partly Cloudy

This is one of those college towns that makes you want to stay in academia forever. And on a perfect day like this one? OOF. What to wear in Bulldog country. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ This IIIBeCa bag = classic with a twist. Just like the menu at The Branded Butcher.

+ A Laura Lombardi necklace laid-back enough for a game day, even.

+ A just-librarian-y Boy. by Band of Outsiders dress that will look right at home amidst the rare stuff at Jackson Street Books.

+ A Jasmin Shokrian jacket—so you can take in some live music on the Georgia Theater rooftop after the sun goes down.

+ A way-chill, leather-wrapped ACB bracelet ready for some chicken-and-waffle action at The World Famous.

+ Dieppa Restrepo lace-ups that the vintage-loving girls at Community would go nuts for. 

So much more “Weather Vain!” Really!

Track Star: Bleached

image

image

The Vibe: L.A. sisters Jennifer and Jessie Clavin pack major musical punch with their hazy surf-rock melodies, devil-may-care ‘tude, and inimitable cool-girl vibes.

The One-Song Intro: “Dead In Your Head” 

The Look, Recreated:  Roughed-up classics, like Midnight Rider’s vintage-inspired Waylon Jennings T-shirt, Washborn’s oversize jean jacket, and Dieppa Restrepo lace-up boots that look as fly offstage as on.

More “Track Star” action right this way…

Next Level: Denim Shoes

image

If you’re gonna be a full-fledged blue-jean baby, you’ve got to put some sole into it. Here’s how to gain your denim footing. —erica

LEVEL I: Little Assembly slip-ons, just itching for a boardwalk.

LEVEL II: No.6 shoes feel completely made-over with the help of an unexpected material, no?

LEVEL III: These are the sorts of boots—from Dieppa Restrepo—that would rock in a serious way with some rolled-up shorts.

LEVEL IV: These Reed Krakoff heels + the most minimalist white dress in the world? Sheeeeeek.

All the “Next Level” action you can handle is right here.

Weather Vain: Paris, France - 52 With a Chance of Rain

Even when it’s rainy there, we’re itching to be in Paris. I mean, we aren’t fools. Here’s what we’d wanna be wearing if we were so lucky today. —erica

image

Clockwise from top left:

+ A black Hope button-down that, with its asymmetrical hem, is so much more.

+ A glam Kelly Wearstler cuff that will make you even more bummed that you missed The Sporting Project's latest pop-up dinner series (a good reason to book another trip!).

+ The sort of easy necklace by Gabriela Artigas that won’t get in your way in the French Trotters fitting room.

+ This Gryphon trench will keep you dry..and motivated to make the walk to La Pâtisserie Des Rêves.

+ Nothing’s wrong with a little flash—especially in the form of these stroll-ready, Marais-friendly Dieppa Restrepo shoes.

+ Try not to empty this Clare Vivier wallet at Merci. Just do your best.

+ Iris & Ink leather pants the color of the wine that’s bound to fill your belly.

In Character: Jo Stockton

Forget the tea-length wedding dress and the XL hats—what makes Audrey Hepburn’s Funny Face character so memorable and damn endearing is what she was wearing while Bonjour, Paris-ing and giving long-winded speeches about empathicalism. Here, three key components. —erica

image

A Labour of Love dress suited for days spent sorting books at Embryo Concepts.

image

An A.P.C. jacket—to philosophize with all the guys around Montmartre.

image

The sort of Dieppa Restrepo shoes ideal for expressing yourself through dance.

It’s “In Character” heaven over here.

Next Level: Cork

Since most of our wine comes with screw-tops, there’s something about wearing cork that feels fancy. (But, you know, in an opposite-of-Swarovski sort of way.) Here, four ways to give it some play. —erica

LEVEL I: This skinny Rag & Bone belt would bring some texture to a silk or jersey dress—picture it against cream. 

LEVEL II: Deceptive suckers: These Dieppa Restrepo lace-ups look like they could be leather or canvas, but they are cork through and through.

LEVEL III: Lauren Merkin brings on the fall colors for a clutch that would look damn good with dark denim.

LEVEL IV: Holy. A cork T-shirt dress? Ostwald Helgason is not messing around. 

More “Next Level” here! It’s true!
