Weather Vain: Seattle, Washington - 79 and Partly Cloudy


It’s not a rainy day in Seattle today—best take advantage. Here’s what to wear for a really good time in The Emerald City. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ Elizabeth and James shades, with lenses as blue as the waterfall on Bainbridge Island.

+ An A.L.C. dress jazzy enough for a big night out at Artusi.

+ A Marie Turnor lunch sack leather bag, with room for a paperback score from The Elliott Bay Book Company.

+ Ella Moss flats—so you can investigate Pike Place Market for hours and hours.

+ A Winifred Grace cuff that’s going to make you want to spend the night on the waterfront looking at the stars.

Head this way for way more “Weather Vain.”

Next Level: Laid-Back Lace


NEWSFLASH: Lace doesn’t have to be all prissy. Srsly! Here, four takes that are fly with ratty jeans and bedhead. —erica

LEVEL I: Yarnz delivers a lace-print scarf—and, adding in a few other motifs, doesn’t even make you fully commit.

LEVEL II: This Ella Moss sweatshirt belongs at a sunny cafe table, not at the gym.

LEVEL III: 3.1 Phillip Lim goes pseudo-stripy in a really killer way. And see what’s happening with the white pants? A good pairing call.

LEVEL IV: It doesn’t get more slouchy-cool than this Raquel Allegra jacket. Take the plunge.

Next Level: Faux Fur Jackets

Both Claire and I have been working a fake fur this season, and we highly recommend it. Tossing one on makes any outfit look instantly more glam, and all that synthetic material is mighty warm. Here are four we can get behind should you decide to try for yourself. —erica

LEVEL I: The color blocking and black suede sleeves make this Gryphon invention nice ‘n easy. Pull it on when you’d normally do a basic leather jacket.

LEVEL II: With its spotted pattern, this Msgm style is just a teens more challenging, but the ultra-classic cut—bracelet sleeves!—will keep you in it for years and years.

LEVEL III: Suno is all about the pattern mixing, but I love the idea of this sucker with dark jeans and an oxford, too.

LEVEL IV: Penny Lane would heart this Ella Moss coat, but don’t let that dissuade you. Picture it with a long-sleeve neutral maxi dress. SOLD.
