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
