This week's street snap round-up defies all the unspoken logic of summer style. If you think an ensemble that consists of all-black, a winter scarf, or your best velvet blazer is impossible to pull off in the heat, you might want to reconsider. Take a look at how these clever New Yorkers break the rules.
Barber Shop Socks
We continue to spot creepers, and we love the way this girl styled hers with a literal "twist" using her socks!
There is no better place to browse if you are looking for a unique vintage piece than the Williamsburg (or Fort Greene) Brooklyn Flea.
Americana is everywhere at the Brooklyn Flea..and tutus are abound!
Be effortlessly bold and stand out amongst the summer crowds in a bright red sun dress!
A white crochet top, sheer maxi skirt, gold jewelry, and a pair of ankle boots is the infallible formula for a chic Sunday stroll.
Michelle Williams Premiere
These girls look so ready for an afternoon at the theater while waiting for a movie premiere (as well as a Michelle Williams sighting) in the Bowery.
Sheer Black Lace
Another summer myth buster..all black can indeed be worn if the pieces are short and sheer!
Don't feel like you have to store all your scarves for colder months; it's been stifling hot in the city this week but they can still be paired with shorts and an airy top.
A turban and a khaki dress looks so exotic yet so refined!
Sometimes the best thing to do at Union Square is to throw on some headphones and just watch the crowds go by. We love this girl's nonchalant look in a mismatched patterned shirt and dress and floppy untied boots.
A great velvet blazer equals instant formalism, and is the perfect way to add some polish to a casual turquoise dress.
Satin is one of the most suitable fabrics for summer; not only does it look beautiful in the sunshine but it can be worn in any length, from a sleeveless dress to a full-length romper.
