    The News: Arcade Fire Covers The ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ Theme Song

    The headline essentially says it all: Arcade Fire covered the Beverly Hills Cop theme song, “Axel F,” at their LA show on Friday night—perhaps in anticipation of 2016′s Beverly Hills Cop 4? They then segued into “Normal Person” and a super cool cover of “Welcome to the Jungle.” Watch the video below.

    The Look: adidas Originals Stripes and Leather Capsule Collection

    Leather jogging pants, striped socks and sliders, tee dresses, high tops, and sweaters tied around the waist—it’s totally okay to be laid back and lazy as you recoup from the weekend. You’ll look so cool nobody will even be able to tell. Promise.

    The Face: Make Up For Ever Aqua Matic, $21

    Sweep this waterproof, blendable shadow stick in Satiny Warm Brown all across your lids and beneath your lower lashline. Then line eyes with the Diamond Black shade and coat with tons of mascara.

    The Inspiration: Joan Smalls for Free People

    If you haven’t checked out Free People’s Mag-a-log, I suggest you do so immediately. With everything from interviews with Wild Belle’s Natalie Bergman to DJ Alex Richards to model-turned-writer Jenny Bahn to killer styling tips and bohemian-centric editorials, it’s essentially 47 pages of inspiration. Today, I’m channeling Joan Smalls’ look—with uncombed sun-kissed waves, braids, and heavy smudged eyes, I’ll be taking whatever remnants of the weekend I can into this week. As it should be, right?

    The Song: “Don’t You Love (feat. BANKS)” by Lil Silva

    Lil Silva, the British producer responsible for BANKS’ track “Goddess,” recruited the R&B songstress’ help for his latest track, “Don’t You Love.” The song is four-and-a-half minutes of electro soul calamity, fully capable of transporting you back to the weekend’s late-night daze. Listen below.
