The Look

Michael Cornthwaite, 36: Owner, Downtown Cocktail Room

Jennifer Harrington, 29: Owner, Henri & Odette gallery

Style Icons: (Harrington) Charlotte Gainsbourg’s “effortless Parisian style.” (Cornthwaite) “Free-spirited rockers,” such as Sting and Lenny Kravitz.

What They’re Wearing Now:

(Cornthwaite) Vintage Joseph & Feiss jacket from Marshall Field’s; Brooks Brothers button-down shirt; DKNY tie; Marc Jacobs sweater; and Banana Republic trousers.

(Harrington) Frock from H&M; vintage bracelet, belt and fur vest; basic black leggings; and Gianni Bini platform pumps from Dillard’s. Harrington likes to mix new designer finds from Barneys with thrift store finds and trendy pieces from H&M, while Cornthwaite loves well-worn Lucky Brand or Seven for All Mankind jeans and Zara sweaters.

“You should always look like you, not you in a costume,” Harrington says. Her fiancé agrees: “Clothes should fit you; you shouldn’t try to fit the clothes.” – Amy Schmidt
