Setting foot outdoors today feels like walking straight into a sauna. While sweatiness is inevitable, looking pulled together during a heat wave requires creativity. Why not take inspiration from some of the most stylish street-style subjects, both Fashion Week attendees and regular folk alike? Dress up a sunny floral dress with a cinched belt and black platform sandals à la Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, or temper a sheer lace top with ankle boots and denim shorts. If layering feels too daunting, accessories like a stack of silver bangles or a sleek white clutch can elevate a simple T-shirt and pants. And never underestimate the value of sunglasses: a hot pink pair will keep a printed shirtdress from feeling too corporate when you’re off-duty.
