If you’re been on a diet of street style, New York Fashion Week goers are your staple right now. But you can’t tell just how hot the temperature is now in the Big Apple judging from the pictures, and judging from the clothes people there have on. For the record: The average temperature in New York right now is up to a high of 32 degrees Celsius (though it sure feels more like it’s 34 degrees Celsius – trust me, I just returned a trip there).
So while the rest of us bemoan the weather for the lack of creativity and style when it comes to dressing, here’s proof of how not even global warming is an excuse for boring dressing. To make things easier, we’ve broken down these looks according some of our favourite summer items (the humble tee, the denim shorts, the off shoulder top, the button down shirt, sandals) and some ingenious layering. Repeat after me: Yes. You. Can. Layer. In. This. Weather.
