Track Star: Frankie Rose

The Vibe: Frankie Rose has been in just about every girl-group you’ve loved in the past couple of years—Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls, and Dum Dum Girls. And she really shines on her solo album Interstellar, which is full of space-pop beats and her breathy vocals. She’s got a style that’s soft, mysterious, and full of black silk; it plays well with her dark hair and blood-red lips.

The One-Song Intro: “Know Me”

The Look, Recreated: This floral neoprene bodysuit from Shakuhachi, these coated jeans by April 77, these Dieppa Restrepo sleek all-black booties, and this Tucker black kimono dress. maitri mehta

Meet some chicks as talented and stylish as Frankie right here.

Formal Statement: 20 Dope Prom Dresses (That Are All Under $300)

A little bird told us that it’s time to start shopping for a prom dress. Ok, no, that’s not entirely how it went down: A little bird (named Iryna) emailed us and asked, “Would you want to help a sister out and offer some prom dress/general evening dress suggestions?” Well, here you go, gurl: 20 ideas—all by super-cool designers and all less than $300—to get you started. And for those of you whose prom memories are currently being mined for #tbt fodder, I present this: a trip to the big-dance attire archives with Laney Boggs, Brenda Walsh, and Josie Grossie. —erica

Weather Vain: Mexico City, Mexico - 70 and Clear

image

Polar vortex wha? In Mexico City today, it’s GD ideal. How to make the most of unbeatable weather in the City of Palaces. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A J Brand jacket as straight-up chic as the city’s Colonia Roma ‘hood.

+ Alynne Lavigne earrings—golden like the mezcal at El Palenquito.

+ A Tucker wrap dress for exploring the clothing exhibition at the Museo Frida Kahlo.

+ A Reece Hudson clutch that could hang with the fashion-y lunch crew at Contramar.

+ Super sunglasses that love some bare legs.

+ 3.1 Phillip Lim mules…to kick off as you crawl into your bed at the hotel Brick at the end of the day.

There’s a whole lot more “Weather Vain” to be had if you click this way.

In Character: Karen Arnold

image

God, The Wonder Years. Would it be bad to watch all 115 episodes over the weekend? There was Kevin, there was Wayne, and then there was Karen—the eldest kid in the Arnold clan and the one who seriously embodied the counter-culture-ness of the time. See how she damned the man. —erica

image

A Tucker top that can powwow with a headband and a peace sign necklace.

image

High-waited Frame shorts, for washing the family car.

A waaaay hippie-doo Odylyne dress for marrying Ross Michael.

More “In Character” action! Get it.

Weather Vain: Atlanta, Georgia - 68 and Partly Cloudy

image

Today, it’s more like Warmlanta than Hotlanta. How to make the most of the glorious forecast. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ Suited for a cross-body hang at the High Museum, this Metalepsis bag.

+ A Tucker dress as lively as the South Indian yumminess at Cardamom Hill. 

+ A silk-and-cashmere Chan Luu scarf that can multitask: It will keep you warm in the shade and hide any srirachi mayo mishaps at Yeah! Burger.

+ This Feliks + Adrik ring: fancy enough to check-in at the Georgian Terrace.

+ Rachel Comey loafers ready to bop around Decatur.

More “Weather Vain!” And lots of it.

Next Level: Red and Blue

image

While red and blue can be plenty patriotic, they don’t have to be. Here, four ways to embrace the combo without looking like you’re wearing the designs of Betsy Ross. —erica

LEVEL I: This Holst + Lee necklace plus and white button-down and jeans equals throwback Lauren Hutton.

LEVEL II: Good luck losing this way-bright Rebecca Minkoff bag in a cab.

LEVEL III: The pattern may be bold, but everything else about this Tucker dress is so simple and preeeeetty.

LEVEL IV: Yah, yah—Isabel Marant is the queen of the fashion high-top. But this pair has an old-school, minimalist vibe that makes them a real standout.

So much more “Next Level” thisaway!

In Character: Mae Mordabito

With all of the winning components of A League of Their Own—the play at home, every scene with Jon Lovitz, “There’s no crying in baseball,” the brat in the sailor suit—Madonna still managed to stand out as “All the Way” Mae Mordabito. She was tough and feminine, badass and lovable, and she knew how to work a Rockford Peaches uniform. Here, the rest of her look. —erica

A Mark McNairy baseball cap (suede!), worn on the back of the head so it’s more a fashion statement than a sun shield.

Saddle shoes—designed by Rachel Antonoff for Bass—that can handle baggage- and equipment-lugging for away games.

A Tucker dress that keeps the line of swing dance partners long.

So much more “In Character!” Get it here.

In Character: Elle Woods

The key to personal style is finding your look and sticking with it—not being swayed by trends or circumstances. And say what you may about Elle Woods’s sparkle-and-sheen, bubblegum wardrobe, but the Legally Blonde minx knew what she was all about. Three key Emmett- and case-winning pieces. —erica

A halter dress from Tucker that will make Warner realize what he’s missing.

A prim Acne cardigan that even that buttoned-up Vivian can get behind.

Loud-as-hell pink Derek Lam shades that go well with acrylics, highlights, and whatever Bruiser’s wearing.
