Track Star: Charlie Hilton of Blouse



The Vibe: On their sophomore album Imperium, Portland’s Blouse has moved away from the synth-pop of their debut (which was straight-up wonderful) toward something rawer, incorporating some fuzzy guitar and a cello here and there. Charlie Hilton, the band’s vocalist, dresses in a way that really sells this change of pace: Her look’s sweet, serene, and totally laid-back.

The One-Song Intro: “A Feeling Like This”

The Look, Recreated: This flowy Samantha Pleet dress, this chain necklace by Bones and Feathers Collective, and this dolman-sleeve sweatshirt from T by Alexander Wang. —maitri mehta

Weather Vain: Indianapolis, Indiana - -13 and Mostly Cloudy

image

Yes, that’s right: NEGATIVE THIRTEEN. So better bundle up, Indy. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ Pure (non-Ugg) coziness in the form of Jeffrey Campbell boots.

+ Black leather mittens by Carolina Amato—as slick as the lobby of The Alexander hotel.

+ A super-serious down coat Helmut Lang—’cause you got to.

+ A stripe-y Eugenia Kim hat for scoping out the local street art. From your car. 

+ K/LLER earrings that have a certain icicle-ness about them.

+ A big ol’ Jérôme Dreyfuss bag—to carry everything you could possibly need so you don’t have to go outside, like, ever.

+ A CdG CdG creation that’s technically a scarf…but could pass for a blanket.

+ Isabel Marant cords—this is not a day for tights.

+ A quilted Rag & Bone sweatshirt that’ll warm you up as fast as a ribeye (and bread pudding?) at St. Elmo will.

Next Level: Horses

2014 is the year of the horse. You ready for all that? Cause we are. —erica

LEVEL I: A sweatshirt from MSGM x Toilet Paper that would make your four-year-old niece unreasonably jealous.

LEVEL II: Two ponies, from Fallon—to make up for the one you didn’t have as a kid.

LEVEL III: Paige jeans that call to mind Rolling Stones lyrics.

LEVEL IV: Because four legs are clearly not enough—at least when it comes to Smith/Grey horsey hoop earrings.

Yes, yes—fashion sweatshirts are such a thing, but with its sheer sleeves, this Cheap Monday one feels legit dressed-up. —erica

The Vibe: This Birmingham-born singer blends big-band and gospel-choir sounds with booming vocals. She keeps her style simpler—we’re talking clean lines and lots of neutrals (with an occasional brassy print). Oh, and always, always a perfectly lined cat eye.

The One-Song Intro: “Green Garden”

The Look, Recreated: This graphic, B&W coat from Opening Ceremony, an OAK asymmetrical sweatshirt, and a cozy, wool pencil skirt by Creatures of Comfort. maitri mehta

Don’t let the motif fool you: This is a sweatshirt, not a sweater. Oh, those Burkman Bros.—such jokers. —erica
