I know, I know—it’s a little late in the season to think about swimsuits. But the COLORS of this Waiwah number… —erica

Next Level: Chain Prints

image

2 Chainz? Why not more? Here’s how to wear them all over your person. —erica

LEVEL I: The classic, girly shape of this Samantha Sung dress keeps that metal motif in check.

LEVEL II: This Equipment silk shirt—very AbFab, no?

LEVEL III: There’s something so *kewl* about the way the yellow and gold intermingle on this Jo De Mer bikini.

LEVEL IV: Jeffrey Campbell platform high-tops that really let you get your Nicki Minaj on.

Way more “Next Level” to be had if you’re looking…

Weather Vain: Maui, Hawaii - 77 With a Chance of Showers

image

It’s summer surfin’ season in Maui. Here’s what to wear to make the most of a day at Waihe‘e, Ho‘okipa, or Puamana Beach. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Wax + Cruz hat to take your from water to lunch at Pranee’s Thai Food.

+ The tiniest Bing Bang ring that won’t get in the way of biking Haleakala National Park.

+ The sort of Lisa Marie Fernandez suit that cooperates with surfboards.

+ Baggu's brilliant (and still stylin') wetsuit bag, ready to be tossed in the back of a jeep. 

+ Frame Denim cutoffs—as green (well, nearly) as Julia’s Banana Bread Treehouse.  

+ The BEST way to keep tabs on your iPhone, c/o SFK.

+ A super-cute Nomia crop top that would also look killer with a high-waisted skirt for dinner at Pacific’o.

If you’re looking for more “Weather Vain” action, head this way.

Next Level: Seersucker

image

Is there a fabric that screams “summer” more loudly than seersucker does? (That’s a rhetorical question, you guys.) Here, four ways to work it as we head into the weekend that kicks off the season. —erica

LEVEL I: A Pret-a-Surf bikini so classic in an Ashley Judd sort of way.

LEVEL II: This Rag & Bone tank leans toward sweet—but wearing it with some ragged jean shorts counteracts that.

LEVEL III: Seersucker, two ways, brought to you by 10 Crosby Derek Lam.

LEVEL IV: Oh, WELL. Didn’t see the leather shawl collar on this Boy by Band of Outsiders blazer coming.

Get a lot more “Next Level” with a single click.

When we were seven wearing knotted T-shirts, we totally wanted all of our dance-class leotards to look like this R/H situation. —erica

Next Level: Rash Guards

Just because we don’t surf doesn’t mean we don’t ogle wave-riding attire. Something we’ve noticed? Rash guards have gotten so freaking stylin’. Here, four versions that prove our point. —erica

LEVEL I: As approachable as a stripe-y tee! And how hot’s the zipper up the front of this Pret-a-Surf number?

LEVEL II: This Eberjey creation can totally hang with guy who’d respond to broseph.

LEVEL III: So GRAPHIC and cool—Basta really knows what’s up. It also pairs so well with a black bikini.

LEVEL IV: Who says you can’t be girly and badass at once? Certainly not Zimmermann.

In Character: Donna Martin

image

image

image

The entire first season of Beverly Hills, 90210, Donna Martin spoke about seven words. But the outfits she wore traipsing down the halls of West Beverly Hills High School, bopping around the beach, and hanging out the top of a convertible did plenty to distract from that. Three trademarks of look. —erica

image

Shoshanna's daisy bikini—because the flower was kind of her calling card.

image

A stripe-y Minkpink crop top that got David Silver outta that DJ booth.

image

A Rebecca Taylor prom dress—key: strapless—that went well with limo champagne and some is-Donna-gonna-graduate?! dramz.

Ready for more “In Character?” Oh, good, right this way…

This Minimale Animale suit—appropriately named The Babe—looks like it belongs at Malibu Sands Beach Club. —erica
