Weather Vain: Oxford, Mississippi - 87 and Clear


Just because schoooool’s out for the summer doesn’t mean today isn’t a stellar day to hang in one of the best college towns in the U.S. of A. Here’s what to wear—and do—in Oxford. —erica

+ Charlotte Stone sandals, comfortable (and cool) enough to stand around at City Grocery's upstairs bar.

+ An Ace & Jig dress ready to laze around on the wraparound porch at 512 once the sun goes down.

+ A smiley bracelet from Bing Bang that will make you almost as happy as caramel cake from Honey Bee Bakery.

+ The sort of Collette Ishiyama earrings ready for a trip to Memphis if the mood strikes.

+ Sunglasses from Dusen Dusen that are big and bad enough for the brightest summer days.

+ A Jerome Dreyfuss bag big enough for a copy of Light in August.

"Weather Vain" insanity! Ahh!

Next Level: Hexagons


Hexagons are having a moment and not just ‘cause the World Cup is this summer (you know, soccer balls!). Here, the shape of things to come. —erica

LEVEL I: The cutest (and shiniest) little wallet we ever did see, from IMAGO-A.

LEVEL II: Daaaang, Jerome Dreyfuss really knows how to do graphic.

LEVEL III: The print—and the skinny little straps—on this Tibi tank kill.

LEVEL IV: Because, let’s be honest, your ears are tired of circles, and Eddie Borgo knows it.

What’s next? More “Next Level!”

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


+ 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

+ A CdG CdG creation that’s technically a scarf…but could pass for a blanket.

+ Isabel Marant cords—this is not a day for tights.

+ A quilted Rag & Bone sweatshirt that’ll warm you up as fast as a ribeye (and bread pudding?) at St. Elmo will.

In a month and a half, we’re headed to Austin for SXSWi (we’re speaking on a panel, you guys!), and it’s never too early to start workshopping a look. Here’s an ensemble that fits today’s bill. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ How sunny are these Illesteva sunnies? Very, if you ask me.

+ These B Store boots have just a touch of Annie Oakley in ‘em.

+ This ALC dress would do a damn good job hiding BBQ stains.

+ Better Late Than Never earrings (for Of a Kind!), cool enough for drinks at Hotel Saint Cecilia.

+ A Jérôme Dreyfuss wallet that won’t weigh you down on South Congress.

+ A way-cool Ketzali scarf to keep you warm enough to eat dinner outside at Perla’s.

For past installments of “Weather Vain,” head this way…
