It's about 1,000 degrees outside and fashion is just about the last thing on our minds. Instead of putting together cute outfits, we're trying to figure out how to not sweat through our clothes and justify flip-flops.
Thankfully, we can look to ladies on the streets of New York for inspiration on how to look hot and stay cool. Whether they're getting extra ventilation by wearing a crop top, letting their toes breath in a pair of chic sandals or shielding their eyes with trendy sunnies, summer street style is hotter than ever.
Check out the stylish gals we spotted near our office and shop their fashionable looks.
