Next Level: Pleated Minis

image

Listen, no one’s suggesting you go full-blown Cher Horowitz (or early Britney). Here, four pleated skirts acceptable for grown-ass women. —erica

LEVEL I: MSGM makes herringbone neoprene shockingly classic.

LEVEL II: On this black Tibi sucker, the pleats are almost a secret.

LEVEL III: The fabric of this tweed number, c/o Alice & Olivia, feels all modern ‘n cool.

LEVEL IV: Yah, it’s plaid, this Sea guy. But it’s also wooly, not-too-flouncy, and killer with some black tights.

All the “Next Level” you want. Get in there.

Weather Vain: Toronto, Canada - 72 and Clear

image

The Toronto International Film Festival is underway! Here’s what to wear if you’re exploring the town SLASH watching movies all day. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A surprisingly comfy By Malene Birger skirt—because elastic waistbands make theater seats a whole lot better.

+ Garrett Leight shades, so you get mistaken for a celebrity.

+ The sort of bracelet, by Giantlion, that you should pack for every trip.

+ A tote from The Stowe with plenty of room for chocolate-y snacks c/o Soma.

+ Loose and breezy—this Organic by John Patrick shirt is totally cool with you gorging on Campagnolo's wild mushroom pappardelle.

+ Rachel Comey mules that can handle a little shopping on Ossington Ave.

More of this “Weather Vain” thing! Lots more!

Weather Vain: Aspen, Colorado - 79 and Clear

image

If you’ve ever been to Colorado in the summer, you know that people who see this only as ski-bum country are totally missing out. And Aspen in August? Less fur, more fresh mountain air. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A silk top from Alexander Wang that would look totally right hanging in a suite at The Little Nell.

Blanca Monrós Gómez earrings that deliver a little “Aspenglow” (« John Denver shout-out!).

+ Slipping into these K.Jacques wedges and heading off to Peach’s for bfast = the ideal way to start the day.

+ This Suno skirt feels Frenchie enough for trout almondine at Brexi, right?

+ An Eayrslee wallet you can slip into a backpack when hiking Lost Man Loop.

+ A Tarin Thomas ring that would look pretty sweet flipping pages at Explore Booksellers—a local institution for sure.

Get away with us. All kinds of “Weather Vain” here and now.

Cannot stop thinking of Diane Lane when I see this Won Hundred skirt, with its below-the-knee hemline and its up-to-there slit. —erica

It’s probably time to introduce your button-down shirts to a button-down skirt, brought to you by Tess Giberson. —erica

Deceptive: These Lemlem separates don’t actually have any colors in common. And that’s what makes ‘em work so good. —erica

Why is the just-wonkiness of this Samuji skirt so appealing? It’s like the sartorial equivalent of the Daria Werbowy bob. —erica

Next Level: Handkerchief Hems

image

Festival season! Amirite?! Here’s how to add just a little hippie-dippiness to your look without going full-blown Vanessa Hudgens. —erica

LEVEL I: Oh, hey, office-approp! Thanks, Rag & Bone.

LEVEL II: Not as scary as it seems, this Elizabeth and James top: With a high-waisted skirt, you wouldn’t reveal midriff at all.

LEVEL III: Ah, yes, it’s a shapeless tent dress—but it’s a shapeless tent dress (from Wood Wood) that you’d live in, and you know it.

LEVEL IV: Opening Ceremony goes sunny. Just be careful around the subway grates. 

Looking for more ways to amp up your summer look? We have some ideas.
