Here’s how we explain NYC’s weather in a nutshell: inconsistent.  Rain, humidity, perfection – you just never know.  So even though the weather varies from day to day, you’ve gotta be prepared for anything.  First up on your list of summer must-haves: printed shorts.

(Oh yeah, and a healthy beet juice)

A pretty printed short is alllll you need girl.  Seriously, let the shorts do the talking and keep the rest of the outfit simple.  On hot, humid days I can’t even be bothered to accessorize.  Just throw on a cropped gray beater and you’re good to go.

Dancin’ in the streets!

This post really goes without explaining.  Prints for summer are so fun – floral, geometric..anything goes.  Stick to bright colors to keep it fresh and in season!
