In Character: Mrs. Euphengenia Doubtfire

image

Mrs. Doubtfire is a hilarious and wonderful movie—and not just when you watch it (over and over on VHS) as a 10 year old. Here, how to follow Kim K.’s lead and mimic the namesake character’s look. —erica

image

A shirt, by MSGM, that might catch fire when she leans over the stove.

image

A Sophie Hulme bag that is decidedly grown-up and dependable—just like this dad in drag.

image

Suno's loud floral blazer, worn with a matching dress, that looks even kookier next to Pierce Brosnan in his swim trunks.

It’s “In Character” madness over here!

Next Level: Fringe

image

How to wear fringe without feeling like you’re repurposing a razzle-dazzle-y  Halloween costume? Four ideas—good ones, if you ask me. —erica

LEVEL I: Well! It doesn’t get more ladylike than this Adam Lippes dress.

LEVEL II: Hey, Coachella, these Loeffler Randall sandals are looking for you.

LEVEL III: Tibi makes backless feel a smidge more approachable.

LEVEL IV: This jacket = very Devil Wears Prada-on-an-acid-trip, c/o MSGM.

Oh, that ain’t tweed on this MSGM bag. It’s recycled paper. —erica

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.

Next Level: Turtleneck Sweaters

image

Not-so-shockingly, turtlenecks have a bit of a resurgence every year—right about when the Starbucks holiday-themed cups surface. But this year, they really seem to be everywhere. Check out four worth cozying up to. —erica 

LEVEL I: A.L.C. does color-blocking in a very easy-to-wear way.

LEVEL II: All that embroidery really fancifies this Suno guy. With a wool skirt, yah?

LEVEL III: Camo! But, thanks to MSGM and that coffee-with-cream backdrop, it has a softer vibe.

LEVEL IV: It’s kind of a lot, this 3.1 Phillip Lim situation. But with some skinny black pants and a pair of Chelsea boots…you know.

It’s “Next Level” madness right here.

Next Level: Wool Coats of Many Colors

image

It doesn’t really get more sophisticated than a camel coat. But that’s not to say you shouldn’t have something a little—or a LOT—more fun in your outerwear arsenal too, and these four guys are up to the job. —erica

LEVEL I: Double-breasted and ultra-classic, this plum BLK DNM number is just two notches left of neutral.

LEVEL II: Take a standard peacoat, turn the blue up to 11, and you get this Carven sucker.

LEVEL III: So ladylike in a can’t-hold-me-back way—how sick would this Sophie Hulme guy look with black-and-white prints?

LEVEL IV: The color of this MSGM situation is majorly girly, but the boxy shape and cropped sleeves are much more salty than sweet.

Here you have it: all the “Next Level” you can handle.

Next Level: Wide-Leg Pants

image

You’ve probably been wearing thigh-hugging, ankle-gripping pants for so long now that you’ve totally forgotten what it feels like to pull on a pair of billowy bottoms. Well, now’s your chance to remember. —erica

LEVEL I: Yes, yes—these MSGM guys are very Annie Hall.

LEVEL II: So loose and breezy, this Acne pair is so ready to hang at a country cottage. Or at the breakfast spot on your block.

LEVEL III: From the front, this Elizabeth and James style doesn’t look so crazy. But then you catch a side view.

LEVEL IV: LOUD. FUN. But these 10 Crosby Derek Lam pants have enough black, white, and gray in the mix to make putting the rest of your outfit together pretty easy.

Some serious “Next Level” action if you click this way…

In Character: Matilda Wormwood

image

image

image

Of all of the mind-blowingly amazing Roald Dahl books out there, this one topped my list. And Mara Wilson—precocious child star, 1996 edition—totally nailed the I’m-a-little-girl-but-am-also-so-wise sensibility of that the role demanded. Here’s how she got it done. —erica

image

A Tarina Tarantino headband that’s so sweet no one would ever suspect you super-glued your dad’s hat.

image

A Maison Scotch dress that totally jives with everything in Miss Honey’s wardrobe.

image

An MSGM tee that’s totally a force for good in the face of that terrible Trunchbull.

For more “In Character” action, head this way.

Next Level: Plaid Jackets

image

To quote hundreds (thousands?) of fashion stories, I’m MAD FOR PLAID. Especially when it comes in cozy outerwear form. Here’s where it’s at. —erica

LEVEL I: Pretty sure it doesn’t get any more classic than lumberjack-y red-plus-black, brought to us by Harvey Faircloth.

LEVEL II: How slick is this hip-grazing situation that Derek Lam served up?

LEVEL III: Double-breasted, slouchy, and cooler than cooll—Suno knows what’s up.

LEVEL IV: There’s something so fly about a short-sleeve coat, like this MSGM one—especially when it’s paired with looong gloves when the weather’s appropriately chilly.

Head this way for lots more four-part harmonies.
