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.

Next Level: Blue and Yellow

image

Blue and yellow make green. But, turns out, the duo makes a pretty good combo without doing any blending whatsoever. Get on that with these four stellar examples. —erica

LEVEL I: Ahhh, a skirt from MSGM that looks like a sunny day and is just as upbeat.

LEVEL II: These Sophia Webster sandals and white jeans?! Come on!

LEVEL III: Sporty-ish—and totally wearable. Way to go, Dusen Dusen.

LEVEL IV: In black and white, this Carven getup would be ultra-classic. But leave it to navy and bright yellow to freshen it right up. 

Lookin’ for a “Next Level” fix? Have at it.

In Character: Olive Oyl

Ok, get this: Did you know that Olive Oyl has been around longer than Popeye? She made her first appearance in 1919, and he didn’t come into being for another decade—and which point, he did his best to steal the spotlight. Well, here’s to you, Olive, and those ginormous feet of yours. —erica

image

A red-and-white J.W. Anderson sweater that’s as wholesome as a can of spinach.

image

A Victoria Beckham skirt with a hit of yellow that would really catch Bluto’s eye.

image

Flat N.D.C. boots—because who wants to carry around Swee’Pea in heels?

Get all of the “In Character” you can handle, here and now.
