New York Summer Street Style is a Mixed Bag of Mom Sandals

If you, too, have been pondering the death of the trend and the rise of personal style, look no further than the humid streets of New York for proof, where you’re as likely to see a mod miniskirt as you are a frilly dress or neck-to-knee athleisure. It’s hard to find the common thread between denim jumpsuits and off-the-shoulder tops and shirts knotted around waists because there isn’t one. It’s referential to infinity!

Unexpected outfit pairings are an unexpected upside of 90+ degrees. Lace and overalls (slide 13), board shorts and clogs (slide 26), a chambray button-down with no pants (slide 33). No breeze, no rules. Anything goes, which is why it’s a treat-and-a-half to click through. Do it to the soundtrack below if you’re really committed, and gird your bookmark-clicking index finger, because there’s enough inspiration for everyone. See you at slide 59!

    Where can I find a green cargo jumpsuit (similar to the one in the slideshow) that isn’t over $200, BUT isn’t millennial pink like the Madewell one? Ideally, Madewell will make it in more colors, BUT UNTIL THEN, my heart yearns…

  • So what you’re saying is Fall’s hottest accessory is a dog? To the shelter!

    Thank you for celebrating individuality in a fashion article. Being inspired is amazing. Wearing what other people are wearing so you don’t feel stupid is old hat. Thank you!

    I love an immersive MR article, and I love NY street style! PS- anyone else think the snack in slide 45 looks like an ambiguous Jon Snow?
