Weather Vain: Ann Arbor, Michigan - 56 With a Chance of Rain

image

It’s a rainy day in Wolverine country, but don’t let that get you down. Here’s how to make the most of it. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Tibi anorak with a hood—to explore the Nichols Arboretum should the rain let up.

+ Cheeriest umbrella ever? Thank Mara Hoffman.

+ This Dream Collective ring + a massive Zingerman’s reuben = happiest hands in the state.

+ Add this Giantlion ring—happiest hands on the planet.

+ Super-springy pastel pink suddenly feels very cool, c/o Current/Elliott.

+ Slick, ready-for-trouble Common Projects slip-ons that feel just right with a Mani Osteria cocktail named Bicycle Thief.

+ A Raquel Allegra henley, itching to check out the pottery and paintings at the University of Michigan Museum of Art.

Welcome to “Weather Vain” heaven.

Track Star: FKA Twigs

image

image

image

The Vibe: It’s gonna be a banner year for R&B and hip-hop ladies, and FKA Twigs will definitely be among the bad bitches on the rise. She’s from England but might as well come to us via Neptune—she’s like a tiny, entrancing alien. Her lyrics and beats are hallucinatory and surreal, and so is her style.

The One-Song Intro: “Water Me”

The Look, Recreated: This bright bodycon dress from Illustrated People, this hypnotizing Mara Hoffman trench, and these killer spiked hoops from nOir Jewelry.

In the mood for more music discovery? You gots it.

Track Star: Victoria Legrand of Beach House

image

image

image

The Vibe: If Sirens were around today, Beach House’s Victoria Legrand would be the head of their gang: Her voice is echoey and supernatural, and her style has a certain hard-to-pin-down allure, too.

The One-Song Intro: “Lazuli”

The Look, Recreated: This patterned jacket by Mara Hoffman, this checked dress from Rag & Bone, a delicate braided cuff from My Eagle Scout, and these Acne pony hair booties.

Check out all our “Track Star” finds, why don’t you?

Next Level: Embroidered Pants

image

Ready to put on some fancy pants? Oh, GOOD. ‘Cause we have just the pairs for you. —erica

LEVEL I: The gray stitching and abstract motif on these guys is so subtle-cool—which is basically Isabel Marant's M.O.

LEVEL II: These Band of Outsiders pants say, “I have really dope parties at my summer house in Newport.”

LEVEL III: Though these 3.1 Phillip Lim puppies can totally go dressy, how good would they be with a half-tucked white tee?

LEVEL IV: Mara Hoffman is not afraid to go there. Clearly.

Ready for a lot more “Next Level” action? It’s a click away.

Weather Vain: Newport, Rhode Island - 82 with a Chance of T-Storms

image

It might be the sailing capital of the world, but this probably isn’t the best day to play skipper. Here’s how to make the most of a maybe-rainy day in the smallest state. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A sunny Mara Hoffman top with rope detailing—ya know, nautical flair.

+ Just-retro A.J. Morgan shades that are wishing for sun—and are ready for heron-spotting at Norman Bird Sanctuary.

+ Jazzy shell earrings by Vanessa Mooney that are just dying for a dinner res at Tallulah on Thames.

+ This Rebecca Taylor clutch: as white as the Adirondack chairs on The Lawn at Castle Hill.

+ Rag & Bone shoes ready for a frozen lemonade and a downtown stroll.

+ The bright white and blue of this Dream Collective cuff—so New England, no?

+ Obesity and Speed cut-offs that could handle some produce-picking at Sweet Berry Farm (obviously with some ice cream after).

Get in on all the “Weather Vain” action this way.
