Next Level: Off-the-Shoulder Dresses

image

This look: Very Princess Di…and Vivian Ward. Here, four ways to make it look all modern and hip. —erica

LEVEL I: Halston's take is as classic as they come (and a little Funny Face, no?).

LEVEL II: Is there such a thing as a let’s-run-away-and-get-married dress? If so, Kenzo made it.

LEVEL III: Rachel Comey does belted AND velvet in the best way ever.

LEVEL IV: Ok, this Christopher Kane version is pretty throw-back. And equally major.

You want more of this, don’t you? Come on.

These Rachel Comey shoes are made for clomping. And that’s just what they’ll do. —erica

I’m pretty sure I had this Rachel Comey top in third grade. But that does NOT mean I wouldn’t buy it again. —erica

Next Level: Silk Trenches

image

Is it obvious that we’re dreaming of warmer (drier) weather? That would allow us to wear not just a trenchcoat but a SILK one? Cause we’ve been spying these ‘round the internets, and we’re feeling them for sure. —erica

LEVEL I: Doesn’t get more classic than this—you’d have this Thom Browne one for decades.

LEVEL II: This Rachel Comey sucker would even look good layered under a heavier wool coat (in other words: you can wear it now).

LEVEL III: This blue. And why is this Adam Lippes take making me think of Tilda Swinton?

LEVEL IV: From Wood Wood—very sunshine, lollipops.

All the “Next Level” you can handle!

You could get a black leather jacket and a brown leather jacket. Or you could get a TWO-FOR-ONE sitch, c/o Rachel Comey. —erica

Weather Vain: Atlanta, Georgia - 68 and Partly Cloudy

image

Today, it’s more like Warmlanta than Hotlanta. How to make the most of the glorious forecast. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ Suited for a cross-body hang at the High Museum, this Metalepsis bag.

+ A Tucker dress as lively as the South Indian yumminess at Cardamom Hill. 

+ A silk-and-cashmere Chan Luu scarf that can multitask: It will keep you warm in the shade and hide any srirachi mayo mishaps at Yeah! Burger.

+ This Feliks + Adrik ring: fancy enough to check-in at the Georgian Terrace.

+ Rachel Comey loafers ready to bop around Decatur.

More “Weather Vain!” And lots of it.

Pick Up Some Styling Tips from Growing Jewelry Desginer Christy Curcuru

She just always looks so COOL.

Breezy, low-key style? That’s the hardest sort to nail. But the Austin-based mastermind behind Growing Jewelry has got it down. For Christy Curcuru, it’s all about cozy knits and killer ankle boots—and, of course, bracelets and necklaces of her own making. Read on for some of her essentials and tips. And, can we talk about that hair?! —koun bae

“That vest is by Lauren Manoogian. It’s super soft, and I’m in love with it. I’m kind of into vests this year.”

image

“I like to wear a lot of neutrals and solids because I almost always have one of my necklaces on or one of my bracelets. I really like wearing the jewelry in the winter popping out under a jacket. The white jeans are by Objects Without Meaning—I really like that line. They kind of look like mom jeans, but they’re really modern-looking as well. They’re high and cropped at the ankle.”

image

“This dress is vintage from one of those rummage sales you have to dig through! I’m a real sucker for tie-dye. It is pretty old and has been washed so much that the fabric is really worn.”

image

“My favorite pair of heels I’ve ever owned are those navy tie-up ones from Rachel Comey. They’re so good! I have a lot of ankle boots, and a lot of these are vintage. Ankle boots are my go-to—with dresses and everything. I’m all about comfort.”

image

“That sweater is my favorite sweater ever. I always wear it backwards. I do that a lot with stuff: I wear it backwards because I like a high neck and a low back, and the high neck looks really good with my jewelry. I just use a little seam ripper and rip the tags out.”

image

“I think with my jewelry, all the colors always go together, you just have to make sure your lengths are working well. I think three is a good number of necklaces to stop at.”

image

“I wear a lot of sack-y stuff. Almost all my dresses are sacks! I like huge sweaters and somewhat baggy pants, so I sort of feel bad for my husband sometimes! But I feel like oversize clothing can be flattering.”

Get ready to fall in love with Christy’s edition, right this way!

Next Level: Perforated

image

Holes: such a thing right now. Below, four takes on the perforated motif that are totally perf. —erica

LEVEL I: Throw this Rag & Bone sweater on with a tank, and walk out the door. Well, maybe put some pants on, too, but you get the idea.

LEVEL II: The grape-y, Laffy Taffy-esque hue of this Rachel Comey tote really makes those hole-punches pop.

LEVEL III: Check out these super-slick 3.1 Phillip Lim flats! Those diamond-shaped cut-outs would let any crazy sock choices shine through.

LEVEL IV: What’s this? Oh, just the nuttiest ring you’ve ever seen, from Kelly Wearstler.

Get in on all the “Next Level” action right here.
