The forecast for next weekend calls for 90-degree temperatures (read: sticky and gross, especially if you're stuck on a poorly ventilated subway platform). While hanging out naked in your air-conditioned apartment may sound appealing, that's no way to spend your summer. In our latest Shop-A-Matic, we scoured local stores for 115 warm-weather essentials that will keep you looking pulled together: lightweight straw hats, dresses that double as bikini cover-ups, tanks, sandals, shorts, and so much more. Click through to read about a few of our favorite finds.
Silk Chiffon Shorts by Aryn K
Why We Like It: Shorts have emerged as evening-appropriate attire, especially now that silky versions abound. This pair looks best slightly rumpled, but if you're feeling OCD, the sheer chiffon overlay will disguise crumpling caused by sitting.
Stell Dress by Cheap Monday
Why We Like It: Tie-dye is a big spring trend, but when done poorly smacks of summer-camp arts and crafts gone awry. Cheap Monday's version, with its body-conscious silhouette, is a sexy update on the onetime hippie staple.
Croquet-Striped Caprese Tunic by J.Crew
Why We Like It: This striped tunic boasts the ease of your favorite men's button-down but is still tailored to the body. Throw it over a bikini or pair with skinny jeans for an effortless summer look.
Wrapped Pink Skirt by Factory by Erik Hart
Why We Like It: A statement-making print on a sexy miniskirt is surprisingly versatile. Tuck a loose tank into the skirt for a summer date, or pair with tights when the weather gets chilly.
Geometric Fold-Up Shopper by Topshop
Why We Like It: This graphic tote can be used as a beach bag during the summer months and then stashed in your handbag for carrying groceries come fall.
