Next Level: Fringe

image

How to wear fringe without feeling like you’re repurposing a razzle-dazzle-y  Halloween costume? Four ideas—good ones, if you ask me. —erica

LEVEL I: Well! It doesn’t get more ladylike than this Adam Lippes dress.

LEVEL II: Hey, Coachella, these Loeffler Randall sandals are looking for you.

LEVEL III: Tibi makes backless feel a smidge more approachable.

LEVEL IV: This jacket = very Devil Wears Prada-on-an-acid-trip, c/o MSGM.

In Character: Harriet the Spy

image

image

image

Before Veronica Mars, there was Harriet M. Welsch, mystery-solving girl wonder. Here’s how to celebrate her look (and her 50th anniversary!), with the help of a very young Michelle Trachtenberg and a 1996 movie. Oh, and PSA: If you’re looking for a deeper read re: Harriet, dive into this goodness. —erica

image

A double-breasted jacket from Tibi—worn at least two sizes too big for her 11-year-old frame.

image

A Monserat de Luca binocular necklace, so she can always be sleuthing. STAY AWAY, Spy-Catcher Club.

image

Mismatched Sleepy Jones PJs that her nanny Golly (Rosie O’Donnell!) absolutely approves of.

Weather Vain: Las Vegas, Nevada - 83 and Partly Cloudy

image

We just spent the weekend in Vegas for a wedding—a scheduled wedding, so don’t be getting any ideas—and here’s what we’d want to be working if we’d stayed an extra day. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A nice antidote to all of the bandage dresses floating around, c/o Tibi.

+ For those chilly desert nights: an Esther Bonte scarf.

+ A Lila Rice ring ready for a hang sesh at The Cosmopolitan.

+ Night out OR poolside lunch—this Eayrslee clutch can handle both.

+ A Fallon necklace that’s very Julia Roberts in Ocean’s 11.

+ Sandals from K.Jacques that you can wear far away from the poker tables—like when sipping an attempting-to-detox juice at Rachel’s Kitchen.

Next Level: Fancy Mules

image

Don’t call these guys clogs—they might get offended. Get the scoop on four pairs ready to hang with your most festive get-ups. —erica

LEVEL I: Jeffrey Campbell does restrained (who knew?!) with slick patent and a low heel.

LEVEL II: A stripe of silver fit for a superhero? Check, 3.1 Phillip Lim, check.

LEVEL III: No, we’re not done with animal prints. Especially when they come in the form of a Jenni Kayne pointy toe.

LEVEL IV: Tibi’s got a whole lot going on—and yet these bedazzled Tibi suckers still work in a big way.

Take your “Next Level” consumption to the next level.

Next Level: Slip Dresses

Slip dresses were as nineties-cool as Hard Candy nail polish and MAC Lipglass. And guess what? They’re back. (But you probably saw that coming.) Four to wear in a 2014 way. —erica

LEVEL I: A slick black number from Organic by John Patrick. And it has pockets!

LEVEL II: Haute Hippie's take is in a color I’m gonna go ahead and call grungy green.

LEVEL III: Get a load of all that M.Patmos sparkle! This sucker is fit for a Baz Luhrmann extra.

LEVEL IV: Tibi does daisies—in case you want to double-down on the nineties nostalgia.

Go to the “Next Level” next level.

Here’s what I think: Tibi's leather midi skirt > a leather mini skirt. —erica

Couple Up: Evan Rachel Wood and Marilyn Manson

image

Remember how CRAY it was when Evan Rachel Wood started dating Marilyn Manson? She was 19, and he was 36. She was the girl from Practical Magic and Thirteen, and he was known for his onstage, er, antics. But we’ll give them this: They were together for four whole years, which is like two decades in Hollywood time. Here’s how we’ll always remember them. —erica

Evan Rachel Wood: An oversize tux jacket by Alexander Wang, a red pleated Tibi skirt, and Jeffrey Campbell mary janes.

Marilyn Manson: A hardware-less Alexander Wang moto jacket, a Markus Lupfer skull tee, and AJ Morgan tortoise aviators.

Reminisce about more one-time twosomes here.

Weather Vain - Key West, Florida - 72 and Partly Cloudy

image

One of the warmest destinations in the U.S. of A. today: Key West. What to wear if you don’t HAVE to wear a jacket. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ The sort of five-o’clock-somewhere pants from See by Chloe that leave plenty of room for Kermit’s key lime pie.

+ So, it’s not supposed to be a super-bright day, but this is definitely the sort of place where sunglasses—these by Karen Walker—are part of the uniform.

+ Stripes! On your soles! Alice + Olivia sandals that can navigate the rocky beaches.

+ A silk Tibi tank that goes with the motif of the Southernmost House.

+ Mociun earrings as quirky as your surroundings.

+ The low tonight: 64. So you can get away with just a Rag & Bone scarf-slash-shawl if you want to.

+ A wicker clutch from Rebecca Minkoff that’s a fun as it is easy—goes well with the catch of the day at the Flaming Buoy Filet Co.

More “Weather Vain” madness right this way…

Next Level: Neoprene

Neoprene is not exactly an EASY material, so trying it is all is definitely taking a leap. But on the rainiest days, its slickness becomes even more tempting. Here, four ways to go that won’t make you feel like an extra in The Life Aquatic. —erica

LEVEL I: Phillip Lim's answer: Go with a belt. Put this on with the closest LBD, and you nail not only the neoprene thing but also the black-and-blue look.

LEVEL II: The color and fabric of this Tibi dress are tricky, but the so basic, super-flattering cut makes up for that big-time.

LEVEL III: Alexander Wang gives the bomber an extra hit of coolness—as if it needed the help.

LEVEL IV: Yes, there’s a lot going on here, but what if you pulled this Elizabeth & James floral situation on with a big, fluffy gray sweater? Now, there we go.
