It’s a wrap
• Who she is: Noa Olivet
• What she’s wearing: Cuffed jeans, retro boots, starlet sunglasses and a gray wrap top from Minx Boutique (64 N. Lexington Ave., 225-5680).
• Why we love it: Jane declared the slouchy gray shirt the must-have ultra-versatile fashion piece, but Noa’s outfit takes comfort wear to a new level. The wrap is both cozy and body-conscious, adding casual glamor to jeans and boots.
