Weather Vain: Providence, Rhode Island - 68 With a Chance of Rain

image

Hey, now—don’t let the rain in R.I. get you down. Here’s how to keep things cheery (check out that bright white) in the Creative Capital. —erica

+ Native rain shoes that don’t actually look like rain shoes.

+ A VeraMeat necklace—simple but super-considered (not unlike the coolest hotel in town, The Dean?).

+ Rag & Bone white jeans, ready for a late-afternoon oyster-mushroom po’ boy at The Grange.

+ A sweater from Everly, in case you get chilly sitting in one of the 1492 seats at the Columbus Theater.

+ One of those linen tees, from 81 Hours, that you’d wear more than you wish to admit.

+ Mociun earrings that the kids at RISD would die over.

+ A Will Leather Goods wallet with a wristlet strap, to keep your hands free to clutch a White Electric Coffee mocha…and bagel.

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: Anchorage, Alaska - 34 and Clear

image

I’m going to save my first adventure to the City of Lights and Flowers for a time of year when there are, you know, flowers, but if you happen to be in AK today, here’s what I think you should wear—and what you should do! —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Carven turtleneck, for cozying up to some seafood at Marx Bros. Cafe.

+ Frame Denim jeans that aren’t too fancy for some reindeer sausage.

+ Floral Kenzo gloves—because it’s too frosty to really experience any of the stunning natural scenery.

+ A Baggu bucket bag as caramel-y as a Bavarian Hefeweizen from Glacier Brewhouse.

+ An Isabel Marant coat, with a hood! In case your ears get chilly.

+ A K/LLER bracelet that would look fiiiiine resting on the bar at Hotel Captain Cook.

+ Velvet slip-ons c/o Rag & Bone that are cozy enough to watch the Alaska Aces play some ice hockey.

There’s a whole lot of “Weather Vain” to be had if you’re looking…

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.

Track Star: Betty Who

The Vibe: The Australian pop star Betty Who’s vibe is like Marilyn Monroe with a pixie cut. She delivers fun, sassy pop that you can dance to (and dance to and dance to)—which plays well with her style, all retro-fun and cheeky.

The One-Song Intro: “High Society”

The Look, Recreated: A pink-sleeve varsity jacket from Opening Ceremony, these high-waist jeans from Courtshop, and an Erdem floral scarf. —maitri mehta

It’s music madness right over here! Go on now.

Couple Up: Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner

image

In 2009—before T.Swift’s relationships became an awards-show punchline—the world gave us TAYLOR SQUARED. It’s probably safe to assume that 37,235 Tumblrs were started to pay tribute to the two, who co-starred in Valentine’s Day (timely-ish, no?). Here’s what their romance looked like. —erica

Taylor Swift: A sparkly Jenny Packham belt, a white Issa halter dress, and dangly Blanca Monrós Gómez earrings.

Taylor Lautner: A moto jacket from BLK DNM, an Everlane tee, and black Kelly Cole jeans.

Weather Vain: Cincinnati, Ohio - 14 and Mostly Cloudy

image

Man, it’s cold today in Cincy. So bundle up—and try not to let the chill hold you back. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A winter coat—from Suno—that’s more sleek than it is snowman.

+ A Baggu tote that coordinates with Metropole's seared radishes and  baked cranberry beans.

+ Knee-high boots, from Cynthia Vincent, for stomping around Over-the-Rhine.

+ A Eugenia Kim hat that shields as much of your noggin as possible.

+ An Isabel Marant sweater, ideal for cozying up for a movie at Esquire Theatre.

+ J Brand jeans that are laid-back (and worn-in) enough for a visit to Rhinegeist Brewery

+ A Jennie Kwon ring that won’t get in the way of any of your frigid-weather gear.

+ Acne gloves that would look great wrapped around a macchiato from Collective Espresso.

Couple Up: Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt

image

Years before Team Aniston and Team Jolie were a thing—such a thing!—it was all about Gwyneth and Brad, with their matching jeans, matching sunglasses, and (eventually) matching haircuts. Here’s how they rolled. —erica

Gwyneth Paltrow: A basic white tee from Everlane, a Band of Outsiders leather blazer, and some mom jeans c/o Denim Refinery.

Brad Pitt: A Krochet Kids beanie, a worn-in sweater by Alexander Wang, and a pair of light-wash Simon Spurr jeans.

Next Level: Horses

2014 is the year of the horse. You ready for all that? Cause we are. —erica

LEVEL I: A sweatshirt from MSGM x Toilet Paper that would make your four-year-old niece unreasonably jealous.

LEVEL II: Two ponies, from Fallon—to make up for the one you didn’t have as a kid.

LEVEL III: Paige jeans that call to mind Rolling Stones lyrics.

LEVEL IV: Because four legs are clearly not enough—at least when it comes to Smith/Grey horsey hoop earrings.

Get your “Next Level” fix right over here.
