HEAD TO TOE CREATIVE WORK

This unbearable heat and humidity can be a real challenge for those of us commuting to an office.

It’s nearly impossible to arrive to work looking polished when you’ve spent 45 minutes in the bowels of the NYC subway system. Unfortunately, HR typically doesn’t consider bikinis and cover-ups suitable work attire. For sticky days like these, we love the light simplicity of a skirt-and-tank combo. This asymmetrical striped peplum skirt by Milly is a real standout piece that instantly pulls your look together. Plus, the sharp black and white lines and body-hugging silhouette will easily transition to evening, and later into the fall season. If you can wear open-toe sandals to your office, try this studded pair by Aquazzura. The low, block heel is great for walking around the city and the office. Team with a satchel-style bag in black. We love Proenza Schouler’s “tiny” PS1 bag, but this style by Cambridge Satchel lends the same vibe, at fraction of the cost. We recommend silver or gunmetal accessories to accentuate the outfit. Don’t forget to stash a sweater to combat the Antarctica-like air conditioning temperatures inside the office.

HEAD TO TOE CASUAL LOOK

It’s hot and humid so stick to simple pieces.

A pair of denim shorts with a black tank top is always a safe bet for this weather. If this look feels a little too tame, throw a fun fall trend into the mix: faux-fur sandals. Spotted on the most ridiculously stylish women on the East End, furry-top slides in a neutral, taupe color look effortlessly cool, even when paired with the most simple outfit. You can easily take the look from a chill dinner at The Crow's Nest to a more formal dinner party in Georgica. Best of all, you can rely on these to take you through the fall season.

BEAUTY FIXES

Getting ready is maddening enough, especially during this time of year, as the weather gets hotter and much more humid. So we thought we’d pass along a couple of our beat-the-heat beauty secrets.

-Amika’s Straight Up Smoothing Balm is the hair miracle we’ve been looking for. It’s a lightweight straightening balm that is the best at minimizing frizz (in part by warding off humidity). You can put it your hair if you want to just slick it back in bun without blow drying it. Or use it before drying your hair as it protects against heat damage.

-Liquid Palisade makes doing your own nails a cinch and eliminates the need for weekly mani/pedi appointments during the summer. Like painter’s tape for nails, it provides a protective barrier around the cuticles that keeps polish neatly inside the lines—no matter how shaky your hand may be. It dries quickly before you polish, peels off easily after you polish, and helps keep a perfect color line around the cuticle after every use.
