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

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.

With all that’s going on here, this Gryphon sweater could be total overkill. But instead it’s coolest-girl-at-the-homecoming-game. (Can you tell that back-to-school is our fave season?) —erica

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.

A Case for…Baja Hoodies

Good news: If you’re wearing one of these suckers, you can use the words gnarly and brah unironically. Kidding! You can, however, hang out at the beach once the sun goes down and, if things go as I always hope they will, eat marshmallows toasted/charred over a bonfire. —erica

1) Vena Cava Wasily baja hoodie: Just long enough to wear over a bikini.
2) Textile Elizabeth and James baja popover cotton jacket: The soft pinks and creams  give it an unexpectedly sweet look.
3) Sophomore baja hoodie: This fabric should eliminate any drug rug gags.
4) Gryphon vintage baja: Each one is made from found fabric and is therefore one of a kind—obviously up our alley.

When I was home in Peoria, Illinois, over the weekend, I saw a sign in the women’s section of a local department store above a display of jeggings that attempted to give a definition of the newfangled denim invention. In addition to offering the correct pronunciation, it read: “See also: stylish, slimming.” If you happen to disagree with that description, Gryphon has produced anti-jeggings, jean sweatpants. For now, wearing them is like giving the ultra-snug trend the finger, but soon enough, the mall-fashion industry will likely be looking to give the roomy crossbreed a catchy new name—and thankfully jweatpants just rolls off the tongue. —erica

In Character: Phyllis Nefler

As a vivacious, determined troop leader, Shelley Long taught us the value of creative fundraising, celebrity endorsements, and good tailoring. And khaki is quite the uniform essential right now, even if you’re not on the hunt for badges.

Something chic and khaki—like a Gryphon coat with pockets big (and sturdy) enough to hold plenty of emergency lip product. (Avail at Les Nouvelles.)

A just-floppy-enough Rag & Bone hat that protects from ticks and keeps the statement hair under control. (Avail from Ssense.)

For occassions when a Wilderness Girls uniform isn’t appropriate, a go-to polka-dot Whit dress that can handle some out-there accessories. (Avail at Bird.)

This just in: The trench Jane and Judy Aldridge designed w/ Gryphon is waaaaay better than the Sea of Shoes phenom’s Urban Outfitters shoe collection. And, er, waay more expensive (875 big ones at shopbop)
