Secret 1: Top It Off
Tresses can’t be tamed? A hat not only covers up unruly hair, but makes a strong statement as well. Janessa Leone’s fedoras are a favorite of celebrities like Jessica Alba. A Zadig & Voltaire Love bag and Black Orchid High Waisted Skinny Jeans ($141) in Ikat complete Alba's look.
