Couple Up: Owen Wilson and Kate Hudson

image

If these two were a high-school couple, they would be pictured in the yearbook under the header “Best Beach Hair” (and, ok, probably “Best Smiles” too, those jerks). Here’s a tribute to those Owen-plus-Kate days of yesteryear… —erica

Owen Wilson: Super-dark Acne jeans, a navy Everlane polo, and a long-sleeve tee from James Perse.

Kate Hudson: Ripped Current/Elliott jeans, a Rachel Zoe vest (worn as a top), and a lariat necklace by Vanessa Mooney.

More match-ups right this way.

In Character: Clarissa Darling

You know what Clarissa probably couldn’t explain? Her personal style. I mean, she was pretty much willing to try anything, and she wasn’t even remotely interested in coordinating—that matching business for Fergface (ew). —erica

image

A Venessa Arizaga bracelet with some ‘tude—possibly a gift from Sam?

image

An Alice + Olivia vest—because this one would never pass up a layering opportunity.

image

Knit biker shorts by ALL Knitwear, to be worn under something plaid or floral or just plain crazy.

If you’re itching for more “In Character,” have at it.

Mean Girls is 10 years old. The internet has probably already told you that. And though we paid tribute to the Plastics back in the day, we thought it was about time to give a shout-out to Lizzy Caplan in her very wonderfully acerbic—Spring Fling Queen-nominated!—role. —erica

image

A Band of Outsiders bow tie that attracts the Mathletes.

image

A Denim Refinery vest that would probably get a mention in the Burn Book.

image

A seriously tough K/LLER ring made of metal, not cold, hard, shiny PLASTIC.

Big into “In Character?” Head here.

Weather Vain: Buenos Aires, Argentina - 80 and Mostly Cloudy

image

Most of us north of the equator are probably itching to go south right now, and where better than B.A.? Here’s what we’d be working if we were jetting to the Argentine capital right now. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ An Alexa Sofia scarf nearly as sweet as Nucha's baked goods.

+ A Black Crane top, as chilled-out as the lofts at Home Hotel

Pants—from Base Range—baggy enough for a healthy portion of grass-fed beef at La Brigada.

+ An Elizabeth Knight necklace game for some Palermo Soho shoppin’ time.

+ Shades, by Warby Parker, for strolling Jardín Botánico Carlos Thays.

+ The sort of Rag & Bone vest you should always toss in a carry-on.

+ A made-in-Argentina bag from the talented ladies of Hare+Hart.

Loeffler Randall shoes that can handle a really, really late night.

Whoa, there’s more “Weather Vain!” Have at it.

Can we just take a moment and talk about the fact that a quilted vest is SUCH a stellar layering thing? That works under camel coats and over hoodies and all that? And that this Universal Works one, navy and without a certain swish-swishiness, is about as sleek as they come? —erica

In Character: Claudia Kishi

I’m not here to debate which Baby-sitters Club member was the coolest, but Claudia was for sure a top contender. She was an artist. She loved crazy hairstyles and dance parties. SHE HAD HER OWN PHONE LINE. And she liked to dress a little nutso, even if Mary Anne and Kristy just didn’t get it. —erica 

image

Floral overalls from Motel that Stacey would toootally wanna borrow.

image

A Venessa Arizaga bracelet that looks right at home in her mess of a bedroom. 

image

A Rachel Rachel Roy vest with lots of pockets for stashing candy.

You won’t believe how much more “In Character” there is. See for yourself.

In Character: Linkovich “Link” Chomovsky

Remember the era of Pauly Shore? Of Son In Law and Jury Duty and Bio-Dome—and, before all that, Encino Man? The plot: Two Cali teens unearth a caveman in their backyard when, duh, digging a pool. And that dude they retrieved was Brendan Fraser in his first real role—and in some pretty mind-blowing outfits. —erica 

image

A Gitman Bros. shirt that has the early-nineties cool that Dave and Stoney are striving for.

image

A Pamela Love necklace that has an artifact-from-another-time vibe just like its wearer.

image

A Burkman Bros. vest that looks supremely questionable with the rest of the ensemble—so off that it might help sell the story that Link’s an exchange student.

More “In Character!” Right here!

Next Level: Good-Looking Puffers

image

You’re supposed to start thinking about your winter outerwear situation looong before the snow starts falling, right? Well, if you’re in need of some cold-weather coverage, how’s about a chic puffer? Yes, that’s right—it’s time to get down with down. —erica

LEVEL I: Steven Alan does navy and classic…but in LEATHA.

LEVEL II: The way-adorable floral print on this Girl. by Band of Outsiders number goes girly in a good way.

LEVEL III: WHOA, leopard. Sea is working it hard.

LEVEL IV: Why is this white-and-lilac situation so enticing? Because Acne knows how to make even tie-dye look sophisticated.
