The heat is seriously in full effect in NYC and with that comes a slew of creative styling to stay as cool as humanely possible. We braved the sizzling streets to spot just how some of the snazziest locals are representing their personal style in this oven of a city. We found ourselves drawn to the ever-popular maxi skirt and dress trend, which — with small updates such as prints and pleats — remains a summer staple.
Want to dress like a New Yorker? Grab your brightest shade of color. From accessories and shoes to even nail color, neon is the new black of the season. We particularly love reinterpreted romanticism this summer, as breezy dresses in classic shapes are nostalgic of fairy tales with subliminal early 2oth century style references — even parasols are back in!
