If quintessential autumn, off-duty New York style is a combination of heavy knits and windblown hair, then the look for spring is definitely a combination of leather motorcycle jackets and laid-back tresses. Seriously, take a look around, who isn’t rocking a cool leather jacket? This could also be an it look, since so many celebrity couples and cool single gals also don this laissez-faire style. Just take a peak at Dakota Johnson and boyfriend Matthew Hitt matching looks or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Balenciaga and bun. Based on this week’s meh weather forecast, I think you’ll still have plenty of time to wear this great downtown look. Click through to style notes for inspiration on how to rock this cool-girl combination. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

I’m a self-proclaimed beauty junkie, so if there’s a new product or treatment I’m the first to try it out. Cryogenics, tried it. New glossy lip stain? Tried it. So when I spotted headbands being worn backwards on the  runway and the pages of Lauren Conrad’s new book, you bet I switched my headband around. The “halo” look was first spotted a few years ago on the Balenciaga runway, where it made so many waves that several designers the following year also put their own spin on the trend. Luckily the look isn’t only just for the catwalk though, many celebrities like Zoe Saldana and Emma Stone have also been seen wearing their crowning glory in a modern twist of the classic look. So if you want to try out this look, click through to style notes to see some of my favorite reverse headbands. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →
