Couple Up: Jared Leto and Cameron Diaz

image

Wait, these two were really together for four years? How does that not seem possible to me? Tell me! Someone! So much time—and so many haircuts (some of them matching, even!). —erica

Jared Leto: A Cheap Monday ring, Baldwin camo pants, and a flowy white Apiece Apart shirt.

Cameron Diaz: A big Clare Vivier bag, slim J Brand black pants, and shades from Elizabeth and James.

Whoa, there’s a whole lot more “Couple Up” action to be had.

Next Level: Weirdo Hoops

image

We can get into a classic hoop (or, heck, a Jenny-from-the-block door-knocker). But right now, we’re really feeling these just-bizarre takes, and something says your lobes would, too. —erica

LEVEL I: These Ursa Major guys are fun! In an upside-down roller coaster kind of way.

LEVEL II: See those crossbars? Elizabeth and James put topaz stones on them.

LEVEL III: Collette Ishiyama does dainty AND fierce—yah, not easy.

LEVEL IV: If you’re not afraid to get a little aggressive, Eddie Borgo isn’t either.

If you’re on the hunt for more “Next Level,” look no further.

Couple Up: Anne Heche and Ellen DeGeneres

image

Ok, LOOK at these two with their matching sunglasses. Is now the right time to say “I can’t even?” I hope so. —erica

Anne Heche: A wavy A Link necklace, a knit Gentryportofino dress, and a pair of AJ Morgan shades.

Ellen DeGeneres: A black silk shirt from Acne, a super-classic white Rag & Bone blazer, and (coordinating) Elizabeth and James sunglasses.

More cute (former) couples thisaway.

Next Level: Handkerchief Hems

image

Festival season! Amirite?! Here’s how to add just a little hippie-dippiness to your look without going full-blown Vanessa Hudgens. —erica

LEVEL I: Oh, hey, office-approp! Thanks, Rag & Bone.

LEVEL II: Not as scary as it seems, this Elizabeth and James top: With a high-waisted skirt, you wouldn’t reveal midriff at all.

LEVEL III: Ah, yes, it’s a shapeless tent dress—but it’s a shapeless tent dress (from Wood Wood) that you’d live in, and you know it.

LEVEL IV: Opening Ceremony goes sunny. Just be careful around the subway grates. 

Looking for more ways to amp up your summer look? We have some ideas.

Next Level: Mesh

image

Brace yourself for the punniness ahead: These four pieces will have you looking like one hot mesh. —erica

LEVEL I: Just a sliver of see-through makes these Rebecca Minkoff loafers look a whole love more interesting.

LEVEL II: It’s like the strapless dress that you never have to hoist up, c/o Elizabeth and James.

LEVEL III: Thanks to this Steven Alan purse, you’ll know if you have your phone without even opening your bag.

LEVEL IV: Not only do the sleeves on this Jonathan Simkhai jumpsuit look fly, but they also allow for some serious air circulation. 

All the “Next Level” you can eat handle!

Couple Up: Ben and J-Lo

image

AHH, Bennifer! Or, at least, the O.G. Bennifer. Remember Gigli? And that ginormous pink diamond engagement ring? Here’s to a little retro Affleck-Lopez action. —erica

Ben Affleck: A lavender Richard James tie, a slick pinstripe Hickey Freeman suit, and a double-breasted Kris Van Assche overcoat.

Jennifer Lopez: A furry Iro jacket, a frothy blush dress from Elizabeth and James, and a Lulu Frost necklace.

Next Level: Asymmetrical Wrap Skirts

image

Let’s be real: If you’re going to cope with chilly legs, it better be for good reason. Here, four skirts totally worth pulling on the never-quite-warm-enough tights. —erica 

LEVEL I: This Elizabeth and James number is black and blue in the best of ways.

LEVEL II: Wooly and warm! And not too short. This Kaelen guy can totally go to the office.

LEVEL III: There’s something so luxe-looking about this faux pony 10 Crosby style. Very tony, if you will.

LEVEL IV: Yah, there’s a lot happening here. But this Kenzo sitch goes so well with black tights, black tops, black boots…

It’s “Next Level” madness!

Weather Vain: Panama City, Panama - 84 With a Chance of Storms

image

It’s a hot one today in the home of the world’s best palindrome. Here’s how to see the city (and hopefully stay dry!). —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A hands-free Jerome Dreyfuss bag for checking out the exhibitions at Diablo Rosso.

+ A Zimmerman dress ready for some rooftop cocktails at Tantalo Hotel.

+ Elizabeth and James shades so you can people-watch at the Panama Canal without being found out.

+ K. Jacques sandals ideal for traversing the cobblestones of Casco Viejo.

+ A Sensi Studio hat. Because when in Panama…

+ A Kyyote necklace as bright and cheery as the dishes Ego y Narciso.

Next Level: Plum

image

You know what color’s really got me right now? Plum—which is basically halfway between Welch’s grape juice and shiraz. Or, you know, the color of the skin of the fruit. EITHER WAY. —erica

LEVEL I: From By Malene Birger, a super-classic (CLASSY) turtleneck sweater—totally in for fall, BTdubs.

LEVEL II: Silk 3.1 Phillip Lim pants! That would look so A+ with a black tee and a pair of mules.

LEVEL III: The contrasting hues on this Elizabeth and James number make the plum look even plummier. 

LEVEL IV: These shades from The Row are itching to hang with some undone hair and a trench. Just ask them.

Next Level: Wide-Leg Pants

image

You’ve probably been wearing thigh-hugging, ankle-gripping pants for so long now that you’ve totally forgotten what it feels like to pull on a pair of billowy bottoms. Well, now’s your chance to remember. —erica

LEVEL I: Yes, yes—these MSGM guys are very Annie Hall.

LEVEL II: So loose and breezy, this Acne pair is so ready to hang at a country cottage. Or at the breakfast spot on your block.

LEVEL III: From the front, this Elizabeth and James style doesn’t look so crazy. But then you catch a side view.

LEVEL IV: LOUD. FUN. But these 10 Crosby Derek Lam pants have enough black, white, and gray in the mix to make putting the rest of your outfit together pretty easy.

Some serious “Next Level” action if you click this way…
