Next Level: Sweatshirt Dresses

image

We’ve seen fashion sweatshirts and fashion sweatpants—and now here come the fashion sweatdresses (totally not a word, but I’m clearly going for it). Here are four we’re feeling. —erica

LEVEL I: Basic gray from By Malene Birger—but with some contrasty-cool cuffs.

LEVEL II: Coco Chanel would of been way into this Thomas Sires sitch.

LEVEL III: Silver racing stripes? Oh, why not—that’s what MSGM says.

LEVEL IV: Ok, this Emma Cook number is kind of, just a little Designing Women.

Get your “Next Level” fix over here!

Next Level: Quilted Florals

image

Listen, just because summer’s over doesn’t mean you have to ditch the florals—but you probably knew that already. How to make them a little more cool-weather-approp? Add some quilting. Four thoughts on that below. —erica

LEVEL I: Ooof, this creamy goodness from Tibi. Maybe with a little black turtleneck tee?

LEVEL II: If you’re worried about making your other sneakers jealous, don’t get these Soisire Soiebleu shoes.

LEVEL III: Masscob makes a moto jacket just a leeettle girly—but not at all prissy.

LEVEL IV: Now, here’s a fashion sweatshirt, c/o Wood Wood.

Hey, we’ve got a lot more “Next Level” that you should check out.

In Character: Kimmy Gibbler

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!

Couple Up: Cindy Crawford and Richard Gere

image

Most photos of Cindy Crawford and Richard Gere involve her wearing a cut-down-to-there dress and him done up in suit. (Oh, and there’s also this Herb Ritts shoot for Vogue in 1992.) Turns out, these two did go places together that didn’t involve a red carpet, though, and when they did, it was kind of hilarious, outfit-wise. —erica

Cindy Crawford: A cross necklace by Alexis Bittar, a floral Minkpink skirt, and the perfect denim jacket from Current/Elliott.

Richard Gere: A loud Huf hat, a sweatshirt (thrown over the shoulders) by Todd Snyder for Champion, and dark-as-they-come Super sunglasses.

Lookin’ for more throwbacks? You’re in luck.

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

Head this way to get some more fresh material for your Spotify listening.

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.
