Weather Vain: Breckenridge, Colorado - 10 With a Chance of Snow

You guys! I’m on a ski trip! And while I couldn’t be more thrilled to be slaloming my way around Breck, I wouldn’t be too bummed (ok, I’d be THRILLED) if it would warm up, oh, 20 degrees. Here, an attempt to stay warm. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ The sort of Fleabags tote you can pack with extra hats and gloves that you’ll no doubt need.

+ Teensy Blanca Monrós Gómez earrings—because the thought of any more metal than this touching your skin…

+ A scarf from A Peace Treaty that’s cozy yet stylin’ enough for dinner at Modis.

+ A Rag & Bone sweater that would look pretty freaking cute with a turtleneck underneath, if you wanted another layer.

+ This Kai-aakmann parka is the anti-fleece.

+ Mou boots: If Uggs had a cousin who always had a pristine manicure…

+ Mother cords—just warm enough for a (short) walk down Main Street.

+ These Imoni gloves are ready for hot chocolate at Peak 7—or a bourbon at the Breckenridge Distillery

There’s a lot more “Weather Vain” to be had. Right this way…

Chevrons, two ways: Could be the name of this Rag & Bone top or a dish on an aggressively heady tasting menu. —erica

In Character: Rayna James

Show I’m most excited about for fall, by a (country) mile? Nashville. There’s the music, there’s the dramz (multiple love triangles in the pilot, wha?!), and there’s Connie Britton, who has more fans than cute kitty photos do at this point. Here’s what she’s working as living legend Rayna James. —erica

A sequin MSGM biker jacket that brings a little flash to the heartfelt ballads. 

A rockin’ red dress from Rag & Bone—because playing supportive wife doesn’t mean she’s going to take a backseat.

Isabel Marant boots: Cowboy enough for her roots; chic enough for the masses.

How much more “In Character” is there? You’d have to see it to believe it.

It Takes Two: Grace & Lindsey Rock Our ACB Cuff

Oooh, a new feature! Think of this as the opposite of “Who Wore It Best”: There’s some mad style happening around Of a Kind HQ, and we’re taking advantage of those fools silly enough to work with us by asking two of them to share how they’d each work an edition. Do it up! —erica

We’re at that weird stage when it might still be warm enough to go without sleeves…but you’re ready to yank on your boots. Here, Grace Canlas, the girl who does everything around here, and Lindsey Green, director of communications extraordinaire, have it both ways.

The Key Piece: Nevil Buckle Cuff by ACB by Annie Costello Brown

Grace’s Take: Sarah Loertscher earrings, Wren dress, and Provensen shoes

Lindsey’s Take: Clu top, Current/Elliott pants, and Rag & Bone boots

Next Level: Full Leather Skirts

Sure, sure—a skintight leather mini is a classic. But you might even be able to get away with wearing these guys to the office without feeling straight out of Secretary. —erica

LEVEL I: A breezy take on the ass-enveloping model, from Rag & Bone.

LEVEL II: The rich, grown-up color keeps the pleats of this Alice + Olivia winner from feeling to schoolgirl.

LEVEL III: Plum! Mmm! Bonus: This Nanette Lepore version is fitted through the hips, making it safe around subway grates.

LEVEL IV: Dang, Organic by John Patrick, this is a whole lotta leather. Sweating the idea of this sucker paired with a ballet-neck top and a stacked heel—because I’m pretty sure even Karlie would look short in this if she wore flats.

For more of our of-the-moment wardrobe obsessions, head this way.

Next Level: Crazy Cords

Now that you’re well-acquainted with printed denim, corduroy wants its chance to go a little wild, too. And even though these four versions are plenty loud, their fall-fueled color schemes make them significantly less in-your-face than their summer cousins. —erica

LEVEL I: The rusty-brown and plum combo here makes these Theyskens’ Theory bad boys just a little more offbeat that a one-hue pair.

LEVEL II: Sure, they look a little Carnival. But you could tone down these Alice + Olivia cords in a snap with a black washed-silk shirt.

LEVEL III: Rag & Bone is itching to keep things bright. Embrace! And then throw on a worn-in leather jacket to cool it down.

LEVEL IV: This Etoile Isabel Marant pair has a tweed-like look that’s just screaming for a tuxedo jacket and a big ol’ necklace. 

Get more “Next Level” madness right over here!

Next Level: Cork

Since most of our wine comes with screw-tops, there’s something about wearing cork that feels fancy. (But, you know, in an opposite-of-Swarovski sort of way.) Here, four ways to give it some play. —erica

LEVEL I: This skinny Rag & Bone belt would bring some texture to a silk or jersey dress—picture it against cream. 

LEVEL II: Deceptive suckers: These Dieppa Restrepo lace-ups look like they could be leather or canvas, but they are cork through and through.

LEVEL III: Lauren Merkin brings on the fall colors for a clutch that would look damn good with dark denim.

LEVEL IV: Holy. A cork T-shirt dress? Ostwald Helgason is not messing around. 

More “Next Level” here! It’s true!

In Character: Dr. Molly Griswold

Of all of Kevin Costner’s sports-movie love interests—and there have been a lot—Rene Russo in Tin Cup was our favorite. She was so polished, so classy—and yet completely and utterly nuts at the same time. Her, here U.S. Open groupie getup. —erica

Super-preppy seersucker shorts from Boy. by Band of Outsiders that show just enough thigh to spark brawls at the 19th hold.

A big straw hat from Rag & Bone to preserve that milky complexion.

A big, fat pearl necklace by Fallon that really sells the golf pro’s girlfriend thing—and looks appealing out-of-place on the floor of a Winnebago.

Want more “In Character?” Well, get ready.

Next Level: Mint

I don’t know what it is, but minty green always seems to have more ‘tude to me than your average pastel—the whole range of which are all over the goddamn place right now. Here’s how to work the ice-cream-y hue. —erica

LEVEL I: Toss this camel-and-mint braided Rag & Bone belt over a striped tank dress, and all of a sudden you’ve got a look.

LEVEL II: The breezy silk top Rachel Rose made us is hand-painted—so it nails the also-popular watercolor note, too.

LEVEL III: The cut of these A.L.C. pants is so business-y. With tortoiseshell glasses, you’d immediately feel 43% more like Jenna Lyons.

LEVEL IV: Basta Surf gives the tankini a (much needed) makeover, in a color that looks surprising good on un-sun-kissed skin.

Lovin’ “Next Level?” Get yo’ self some more.
