Upgrade Your Style With the New Era 2018 EK Collection

It’s that time of year again—it’s getting cold. But just because the weather is dipping into cold temperatures doesn’t mean you need to stop looking stylish. New Era has put together a new collection of hats to help you stay warm and look good as the winter months set in with the 2018 EK Collection.


The Retro Hats That’ll Upgrade Your Collection This Fall

The EK Collection has a number of different styles and varieties, including the EK Luxe Collection, EK Vintage Collection, and the EK Classic collection. The options include a range of knit hats, New Era 9TWENTY hats, fedoras, driving hats, as well as options made with Three Looms Mill textiles, Italian leather and Subalpino Italian wools.

“This unique collection tells the story of heritage, quality and approachability that Ehrhardt Koch himself strived for,” William Loncar, Senior Design Manager for New Era Cap, said in a press release. “The clean design aesthetic and specialty milled fabrics featured in the line allows for versatile styling and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.”

The retail prices for the hats range from $ 60-$ 150.00 USD.

Here’s a detailed rundown courtesy of New Era on the EK Collection:

Upgrade is a thrilling and hyper violent vision of the future from the producers of Get Out and The Purge, and the creator of Saw and Insidious. After his wife is killed during a brutal mugging that also leaves him paralyzed, Grey Trace (Logan Marshall-Green, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Prometheus) is approached by a billionaire inventor with an experimental cure that will "upgrade" his body. The cure–an Artificial Intelligence implant called STEM–gives Grey physical abilities beyond anything experienced, and the ability to relentlessly claim vengeance against those who murdered his wife and left him for dead.

5 Straight-From-the-Runway Tips to Upgrade Your Halloween Costume

Illustrated by Rebecca Clarke

The most fearsome Halloween nightmare has nothing to do with ghouls, goblins, or even the undead—it has to do with costumes, of course. Imagine, if you will, the mortification of arriving at a Halloween party only to realize that you’re wearing the same, store-bought costume as one, two—uh, oh—three other people. That is a real-world terror any sane woman is keen to avoid.

So, on this All Hallows’ Eve, ditch the bag costumes and turn your eye to the Spring 2016 runways, where designers from Marc Jacobs to Vetements provide inspiration for how to turn some of Halloween’s most iconic costumes into jaw-dropping looks. Find our suggestions in the slideshow below to make sure you’re the star of the party.

Dakota Johnson Discovers Fall’s Secret Weapon to Upgrade Any Look

dakota johnson

Geek chic is having a moment. After Alessandro Michele’s radical transformation of the Gucci runway from decadent luxury to a quiet, bookish allure by way of ’70s styling, one component in particular is experiencing a renaissance. The Spring runways were filled with tights: from glittering versions at Alessandra Rich, feminine takes in lace at Rodarte, and even a modern approach to the fishnet at Sacai. And printed tights, spotted on the catwalk at Dries Van Noten, can lift any look from humdrum to haute. Earlier today in New York City, actress Dakota Johnson elevated her city uniform with a natty Alice + Olivia version featuring a schoolgirl vibe.

The trick to wearing the printed tight is through clever coordination. Johnson wears a simple ensemble in a neutral palette: Her chunky, slate turtleneck sweater offsets her denim mini, while creeper-like monk straps ground the look with a subversive take on preppy style. All of this allows her argyle tights to steal the show. In addition to echoing the motif of her Gucci chain-link bag, the pattern lends Johnson’s look contrast, texture, and a touch of fun: the perfect piece to make the transition from sunny fall days into cooler nights.

 

For Dakota Johnson, a minute is never “just a minute”:

Your Parka Makes You Look Like the Michelin Man: Here’s How to Upgrade It

Aether

Winter brings with it all sorts of woes—salt-stained shoes, wind-whipped skin, shaking fingers, quaking toes, an overwhelming desire to move somewhere, anywhere that’s south of the equator—but none so pressing as having the correct outerwear. (Preparedness being the key to success and all that: Always be prepared. Anything that a Boy Scout might say, really.) And the correct outerwear, when you are decidedly ill-prepared, always seems to be beyond your grasp. Suddenly stores are filled with resort wear, for one thing. For another, you’d rather spend your money on fun things, not useful things. “Oh, next year I’ll buy a good coat,” you say, as you slip into another sweater under your fleece under your topper. “Oh, the wind’s not so bad if I just dodge behind this car/corner/lamppost,” you say, winding your scarf another time over your face. “Oh, who needs to go outside anyway?” And then maybe you have a dog, and maybe that requires some late night/early morning any-and-all weather promenades around town, and you begin to realize that this level of layering is beginning to impede your movements (if your dog was capable of rolling his eyes, you’re pretty sure he would), that no one is making eye contact with you, you waddling Michelin Man, and that really, there’s got to be an easier way. Guess what? There is. Meet Aether Apparel, the technically advanced, totally attractive, and insanely warm outerwear line you absolutely need to know now. You’ll wear it forever. Thank me later.

Helmed by outdoorsy one-time film producers Jonah Smith and Palmer West (their slate of ten independent films includes the nightmarish genius Requiem for a Dream), the duo decided to bring their bouncy, three-layer baby into the world in 2009 with a men’s collection, provoked by their shared desire for cold-weather gear that was technical, authentic, and didn’t leave them feeling like they were trying to look eighteen in the lift line. A women’s collection—inspired by their wives, who clambered for coats to keep them warm in city winters and on the ski slopes—followed soon after. Their aim? Technically advanced gear (think PrimaLoft Gold insulation, seam-sealed construction, weatherproof zippers and Schoeller c_change fabric, a breathable textile that independently reacts to changing temperatures) sans logos and bulk that looks just as good on the slopes as in the city. And here’s the thing: They nailed it. The coats are slim-fitting and body-skimming (no more Notorious B.I.G.–style puffers!) and seem entirely too thin to be of much warming use, except they really truly are. (And the ski gear is shockingly flattering, which is no small feat considering the shape of most ski pants.) As it turns out, Aether is the best-kept secret to surviving the winter months. It’s a total game-changer.

“I think the biggest surprise from a womenswear perspective is just how cold the majority of women are and don’t acknowledge it,” says West. “And just the overwhelming love we’ve had from our female customers saying ‘I’m finally warm!’ and it’s a foreign concept to me, because when I’m cold, I’m miserable.” (Tell me about it.) And as for those streamlined silhouettes? “We’re focused on the fit,” West continues, noting that the brand makes great efforts to retain the technical bells and whistles they use in their men’s line, versus some other companies, who have been known to take their men’s designs and “pink it and shrink it” for the female customer. “We definitely support the girl who can hang with the guys, for lack of a better term,” adds Smith, “who is out there in the elements but has femininity and still looks sexy and good in the clothes.” And the best part? Aether doesn’t stop at parkas and ski clothes: The line ranges from loved-up soft base layers and sweats to yoga-ready activewear, a down-insulated “space suit” onesie (that I, for one, will be living in until April), and even lean, limber motorcycle gear. But it all comes back to the jackets, those day- and night-saving warmers. Which is all to say: Get thyself to Aether and learn to love winter. After all, now you’re prepared.

The Case for Dramatic Winter Gloves: Upgrade Those Formless Mittens Before It’s Too Late

Photographed by David Sims, Vogue, September 2014

We get it: You talk with your hands. But don’t think that covering up that tasteful manicure and carefully curated ring selection is muting you this season. A well-chosen glove heightens the drama and beauty of any gesticulation; it’s the missing link your hands—and wardrobe—have been looking for. And there are so many options, from a dramatic, Cruella de Vil opera glove (like dipping an arm to the elbow in cashmere lining) to a more masculine, lion-in-winter glove (favored by aging monarchs and CEOs alike): black leather, darts at the wrist, seamless, slightly pointy fingers. There’s the Victorian lady approach, all covered buttons in brown calfskin. Take any of them off inside and give a playful limp glove-slap to your interlocutor—don’t you look storied? You’re basically Joan Crawford, only with real eyebrows.

Gloves are the masquerade-mask of the hands. Gloves can make any wearer bolder. You can imagine Grace Kelly flagging down a taxi, clutching limp white gloves in her waving hand and a pillbox suitcase in the other. Or just as easily see Caroline de Maigret slouching into an oncoming lane, biker gloves snapped on, leaning listlessly out to traffic, arm outstretched. See? Chic. Plus, they’re just so damn efficient. Not only do they keep your digits toasty (or at least ward off a chill), but they’re the ultimate nod to urban protection. You can see why the boxers do it (and why those Alexander Wang H&M homages were snapped up so quickly)—gloves make you feel like you’re about to take on any adversarial element. Because there’s a grittier side to the glamour, especially when you can’t be in a subway or drugstore for a minute without a loudspeaker announcement that “cold-and-flu-season” is upon us (and you thought it was the holiday season). In these compromising conditions, gloves make you feel invincible. Grab every hang-strap and slide a hand down every guardrail with impunity. Keep gloves on in the supermarket and carry your shopping basket with covered hands. You can traipse and gallivant around all day, and, when evening falls and you’re having a cocktail with a friend, remove your gloves to embrace (it’s only polite) and tear into a crostini. Your hands are still as clean and fresh as when you put them on, which is not to mention the refined elegance of glove removal. Has something so austere ever looked so seductive?

Here, the best gloves to play up your dramatic side this season.
