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

Floral overalls from Motel that Stacey would toootally wanna borrow.

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

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.

Just because Doc’s right-hand man time-traveled didn’t mean his look was timeless. But, hey, he was totally happy in an era-hopping wardrobe (and was a lot less comfortable deflecting romantic advances from his mom, ew). Let’s give Michael J. Fox the love he deserves.—erica

image

A red puffer vest (from Façonnable) that is suited for one crazy DeLorean ride. Bonus points is it’s bulletproof.

An Acne wool blazer that can hang at a high-school dance…well, in 1955.

A Heidi Lee hat that makes him look right at home on a hoverboard.

Next Level: Leather Vests

It’s definitely not cool enough outside for leather jackets yet. But when the mornings and nights turn just crisp, these fly sleeveless alternatives are the perfect things to toss on—they look especially good over anything that feels a touch too girly and under wool coats when the weather turns legit chilly. —erica

LEVEL I: It really doesn’t get more classic than this Haute Hippie number.

LEVEL II: Because OXBLOOD…c/o Iro.

LEVEL III: Lilac? No, we didn’t see that coming either, but this Veda guy looks really good with denim (and black and cream and gray…).

LEVEL IV: Whoa, Philip Lim. Really going there. And we’re not complaining.

Dive on into the “Next Level” archives.

Weather Vain: Jackson, Wyoming - 28 and Snowy

image

It’s a good day to make your way up East Ridge Lift. Here, the sort of getup that does well with après-ski cocoa/cocktails. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Chinti and Parker flannel shirt as cozy as the breakfast at The Bunnery.

+ Winifred Grace's Pegasus cuff—useful for spotting constellations in the night sky.

+ A Hache shearling coat that plays well with the warm woods at Snake River Grill.

+ The sort of Rag & Bone denim vest that feels classically Western—and cool no matter where you are.

+ A Eugenia Kim turband—’cause it’s COLD.

+ Sperry guys that will feel luxurious when you yank off your snow boots.

+ Etoile Isabel Marant cords as fun (and French?) as a day on Rendezvous Mountain.

+ A Tila March bag that’s as carefully crafted as some Brown Derby booziness from The Rose.

For more location-inspired dressing, head this way.
