Chic in the Heat

It's been over 90 degrees for longer than normal in New York and much of the country recently.  Needless to say, it's hard to dress chic let alone look chic in this weather.  My first thought when choosing a dress each day is what won't I sweat in or through which usually means wearing a white dress.  But as you can see here, there are a lot of options to look chic in the heat.  I'm just really glad I don't have to wear a suit1  

Bon Weekend!

This post makes me hate that I'm at work; truly radiates summer...thanks? I think.

But really, awesome compilation.

I am also very grateful to work in an a/c environment!

For me, the trick is finding something cool that also helps combat sunburn...

Beautiful images, my favourite apart from the first image which is stunning is Bette Davis in a white shirt dress. In that kind of heat I'd be shoulder deep in a cool pool if I were in NY unfortunately I'm here in England and it's raining buckets as I type! Bon weekend! Sharon

When it broke 100F, I broke out the skirts. Plus it's just too hot for jewelry.

We have a heat wave here in Toronto too. A skirt or shorts with a nice shirtsleeves or sleeveless blouses are perfect for this kind of weather. I love wearing sandals during summer. My favourite outfits are of LSD, Ines de la Fressange (effortlessly chic always) and Olivia Palermo. Have a wonderful weekend!

Love the photos...Chuck Bass may be my fav, but Gossip Girl is my one addiction.

Linda said...

How is it that Bosworth and Polish are standing so close to each other, yet are obviously in different climate zones?

Beautiful selection of people and photos!
I am sure you are all tired of too hot weather...but here in Sweden we have reached a new rain record for June, and it seems to continue for envy you!
Love Caroline

Ines de la Fressange and Jackie and, of course, Cary. Always, so cool. I hope that it cools down for you New Yorkers. It has been in the high 70's out here in LA (maybe time for a quite trip?). xoxo Mary
