Weather Vain: Dallas, Texas - 73 and Clear

image

This time last year, Claire and I were exploring Dallas, and we’re kind of itching to do it all over again—especially on a straight-up gorgeous day like this one. What we’d wanna wear! —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A denim moto jacket by Theyskens’ Theory—in case your shoulders get cold while eating tostadas de ceviche outside at La Calle Doce.

+ A T by Alexander Wang dress in a blush-y hue, inspired by Grange Hall's flower arrangements.

+ So slick, this Kelly Wearstler ring! It’ll fit right in at dinner at Tei-An.

+ A raffia bag, from Loeffler Randall, that’s totally ready for a happening summer.

+ The perfect Sicky shades for taking in the Nasher Sculpture Garden.

+ Shoes for showing off a Hiatus pedicure, c/o Opening Ceremony.

+ Collette Ishiyama earrings that would make all the fancy ladies shopping at Forty Five Ten swoon.

Got the travel bug? Us too.

Track Star: Betty Who

image

image

image

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.

Next Level: Knit Leggings

image

Even just stepping outside in NYC right now calls for an après-ski-style hot cocoa and time with a wooly blanket. So if you have a chance to trade jeans for some of these sweater-pant suckers, TAKE IT. This isn’t a leggings-as-pants endorsement. This is a leggings-as-warmth one. —erica

LEVEL I: What’s black and white and cozy all over? These A.L.C. guys.

LEVEL II: Opening Ceremony's take would look stellar with a BF’s fisherman sweater.

LEVEL III: Very seventies ski bunny, c/o Suno.

LEVEL IV: Henrik Vibskov delivers a very (loud) Memphis group vibe.

More “Next Level!” Get it.

In Character: Anna Scott

image

When Notting Hill hit theaters, it seemed kind of shocking that it was the first time we were seeing Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts together. I mean, HOW?! They were, like, the romantic-comedians of the nineties, and we finally got to see them side-by-side just before the decade ran out. Here’s how J.R. sold herself as big-deal—but totally relatable!—movie star. —erica

image

An Opening Ceremony jacket with a little Mandarin collar that exudes a sort of laid-back cool to win over a dinner party full of Brits.

image

A Bop Basics hat, ideal for the actress hiding from a naked-photo scandal.

image

A House of Holland cardigan that would totally seduce the owner of a travel bookstore. 

"In Character" galore!

Next Level: White Boots

image

Yah, these may not be as everyday-useful as those black chelsea boots you wear five days a week, but, hey, don’t you wanna switch things up sometimes? Four white-as-snow ways to do so. —erica

LEVEL I: These guys are so simple and yet so special, via Opening Ceremony.

LEVEL II: Well, zip-a-dee-doo-dah. Acne knows how to get things going.

LEVEL III: Loeffler Randall is well aware that black studs are cooler (and more wearable) than metal ones.

LEVEL IV: Can you tell these Alexander Wang boots are calf hair? I think the word you’re looking for is major.

More “Next Level!” Hey!

Track Star: Laura Mvula

The Vibe: This Birmingham-born singer blends big-band and gospel-choir sounds with booming vocals. She keeps her style simpler—we’re talking clean lines and lots of neutrals (with an occasional brassy print). Oh, and always, always a perfectly lined cat eye.

The One-Song Intro: “Green Garden”

The Look, Recreated: This graphic, B&W coat from Opening Ceremony, an OAK asymmetrical sweatshirt, and a cozy, wool pencil skirt by Creatures of Comfort. maitri mehta

Next Level: Sweater Dresses

image

It’s SWEATER WEATHER—at least some days! Here’s how to celebrate while you can still work a bare leg. (Yes, yes—they all work when those annoying tights come out of hibernation, too.) —erica

LEVEL I: Chinti and Parker goes classic…and cashmere. 

LEVEL II: Zip pockets give this YMC sitch some easy-to-pull-off edge.

LEVEL III: I should not love the leather buckle on the neck of this 3.1 Phillip Lim guy half as much as I do.

LEVEL IV: Opening Ceremony: Never afraid to go a little crazy. But so cute with Supergas—maybe even velvet ones?!

There’s lots more where this came from!

Weather Vain: Toronto, Canada - 59 with a Small Chance of Rain

image

The Toronto International Film Festival just wrapped up. That means the crowds have departed, and it’s a top-notch time to explore the city—which is officially in fall mode. —erica

+ Short-sleeve sweater season is short. Take advantage with this Opening Ceremony number while you can.

+ A Lizzie Fortunato bracelet that’d be right at home at Hotel Ocho, set it a former textile factory.

+ A denim skirt from Boy by Band of Outsiders that’s chill enough for a few pints at Bellwoods Brewery.

TOMTOM earrings as sleek and angular as the Daniel Libeskind addition to the Royal Ontario Museum

+ An Acne leather jacket that will earn you respect from the cool kids lined up for Grand Electric tacos. 

+ A little pouch, c/o Jérôme Dreyfuss—it won’t weigh you down during a lazy afternoon hang at Trinity Bellwoods Park

Weather Vain: Reno, Nevada - 93 and Clear

image

Classic day-in-the-desert weather, no? Here’s how to do it right today in the Biggest Little City in the World. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A TOMTOM necklace with a minimalist but juuust Southwestern vibe.

+ Opening Ceremony slides—easy to slip off to dip your toes in the Truckee River.

+ The sort of paper-thin Eighteenth dress you laud on steamy days like this.

+ Thierry Lasry shades as classic as steak frites at Midtown Eats.

+ A clutch, from 3.1 Phillip Lim, with room for poker chips should you tuck into the Peppermill to take advantage of that pumping A/C.

If you’re looking for more “Weather Vain” action, head right this way.
