New York Summers Overheat Me—These Breezy Topshop Picks Cool Me Down

I have a love/hate relationship with summertime in New York. Things I love include the energized and bustling streets, the spontaneous ice cream pit stops on your walk home, and laying out in the park with your friends. Things I don’t love include the suffocating heat, tourists, and essentially the nonstop sticky sweat that formulates on my body within seconds of stepping outside. Dressing to accommodate such weather takes some serious planning, and this summer, I’m letting Topshop take the wheel.

I love buying on-trend fast-fashion finds during the warmer months. Typically, the lighter materials you’d be shopping for look more expensive than they actually are, meaning for once, surviving New York doesn’t leave you completely broke. This summer, Topshop is stocking adorable pieces that are practical for the rising temperatures in the city and suit my trend obsession. A win-win? I think so. Ahead shop the Topshop pieces I’m buying this season that will help keep me cool in the furnace that is New York summer.
