Summertime here in NY is basically a mix of heat, humidity, garbage smell and saunas in the subway – but we brave it anyway. The upside is that there are parks, beaches, patios, beer gardens and rooftops to distract us from all the gross, NYC summer negatives. I basically don’t even look in the direction of a pair of jeans in July/August and can’t stand anything tight, clingy or thick. Simplicity is key to avoid looking like the sweaty mess you will become, as is anything airy and light.
Have I mentioned how happy jumpers make me? Not only do they meet the above summer criteria but they can take you from a day in the park, to dinner and then out after. Jumpers/rompers/jumpsuits are also the perfect addition to any suitcase or weekend travel bag because they are comfy and fold up to almost nothing.
