NY Breezy List1

A Ruffly Halter Dress

When it’s 95 degrees, you’re bound to get a little sweaty. Try a flowy midi dress with a pattern to camouflage any sweat marks (and don’t forget to try Amy Schumer’s genius hack).

A Lightweight Romper

Sundresses are great, but sometimes you’ve gotta mix things up. Rock a casual romper with sandals, wedges or sneakers and stay cool all day.

Lace Shorts

They?re lightweight, they?re frilly and you can pair them with long sleeves without overheating. (And yes, we?re officially giving you permission to wear them as an adult.)

Get the look: Kimchi Blue ($59) Endless Rose ($85); Alice + Olivia ($220)

Channel your inner Ina Garten and embrace the chambray. Pair the lightweight fabric with an off-the-shoulder cut and we promise you?ll be 10 degrees cooler.
