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.

In Character: Kimmy Gibbler

image

image

image

She was like the female version of Steve Urkel, this one. Yes, Kimmy managed to annoy the whole Tanner clan—even infant Michelle, I’m willing to wager—but her style was somehow not half as out-there as she was. The essentials below. —erica

image

Girl never met a mock neck she didn’t like—and this take from Christopher Kane is pretty top-notch.

image

A Marc by Marc Jacobs scrunchie—because it was the late eighties/early nineties, guys.

image

A boxy Suno blazer worn to prove to Jesse just how grown-up she was.

More of this! A lot more!

Weather Vain: Birmingham, Alabama - 94 and Clear

image

If you’re in Birmingham today, maybe carry around a personal A/C unit? How to survive a Heart of Dixie sweat fest. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Suno dress that’s juuuust a little Fried Green Tomatoes.

+ Sandals, from Charlotte Stone, ready for some dancing at Zydeco.

+ This Otaat/Myers Collective wristlet—nearly as enticing as a piece of Johnny Ray’s pie.

+ Collette Ishiyama earrings that would fit right in with the finds at Table Matters.

+ A Sensi straw hat that’s your best shot at staying cool—at least until it’s time to head to The J. Clyde for beers.

Weather Vain: Durham, North Carolina - 92 With a Chance of Thunderstorms

image

Ooof, guys, it’s a steamy one in Duke (and Clay Aiken!) country. Here’s how to at least attempt to tackle it. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ This Suno dress + Vietnamese coffee ice cream from The Parlour = a GD dream.

+ A ring, from Macha, that wouldn’t look crazy out-of-place at the Durham Bulls’ ballpark.

+ A Collina Strada pouch that would look just right amidst the tapas at Mateo.

+ The sort of umbrella by Orla Kiely that makes any precipitation feel a whole lot less gloomy.

+ Melissa flats that can handle a downpour.

A whole lot more “Weather Vain” to be had here!

In Character: Mrs. Euphengenia Doubtfire

image

image

image

Mrs. Doubtfire is a hilarious and wonderful movie—and not just when you watch it (over and over on VHS) as a 10 year old. Here, how to follow Kim K.’s lead and mimic the namesake character’s look. —erica

image

A shirt, by MSGM, that might catch fire when she leans over the stove.

image

A Sophie Hulme bag that is decidedly grown-up and dependable—just like this dad in drag.

image

Suno's loud floral blazer, worn with a matching dress, that looks even kookier next to Pierce Brosnan in his swim trunks.

It’s “In Character” madness over here!

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.

Weather Vain: Cincinnati, Ohio - 14 and Mostly Cloudy

image

Man, it’s cold today in Cincy. So bundle up—and try not to let the chill hold you back. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A winter coat—from Suno—that’s more sleek than it is snowman.

+ A Baggu tote that coordinates with Metropole's seared radishes and  baked cranberry beans.

+ Knee-high boots, from Cynthia Vincent, for stomping around Over-the-Rhine.

+ A Eugenia Kim hat that shields as much of your noggin as possible.

+ An Isabel Marant sweater, ideal for cozying up for a movie at Esquire Theatre.

+ J Brand jeans that are laid-back (and worn-in) enough for a visit to Rhinegeist Brewery

+ A Jennie Kwon ring that won’t get in the way of any of your frigid-weather gear.

+ Acne gloves that would look great wrapped around a macchiato from Collective Espresso.

Track Star: Grimes

image

image

image

The Vibe: Claire Boucher’s music and style are pretty ineffable, but she  calls the former “ADD music” and the latter “anime-goth.” Ok, then. You do you, Grimes.

The One-Song Intro: “Genesis”

The Look, Recreated: These silver flatform brogues from Jeffrey Campbell, this pattern-mixing Suno jacket, and this abstract leopard slip dress by Cheap Monday. maitri mehta
