Style to burn

Michelle Goni & Josh Rhinehart

• Who they are: Michelle Goni & Josh Rhinehart

• What they’re wearing: On Michelle, a brown cotton henley from Minx, black jersey tank dress from Express, jeans she’s had for 10 years, boots she bought second-hand, vintage Ferragamo sunglasses and a waterfall-image pendant (also from Minx). On Josh, a vintage Levis denim blazer, French-cuff button-down from a thrift store, Florsheim retro-look boots and gray Zara jeans.

• Why we love it: Like his all-vinyl DJ-ing alter-ego Biff Bang Pow (every Thursday at Broadways), Josh goes for vintage classics and retro tailoring. His look is a blend of thrift-shop finds and new purchases from stores like H&M. Michelle’s look is both urban-chic and completely comfortable. Her words of wisdom? “Forget pastels, neutrals like black and brown are in for spring.” Amen, sister.
