20 Street-Style Snaps That Are Seriously Chic

Summer layering is totally a thing. And although we tend to default to wispy tanks and cutoffs when the temps hit an all-time high, that doesn't mean our entire sense of style has to suffer. Sure it's a challenge and not every day calls for a just-in-case blazer when the AC is blasting in the subway, but we truly believe summer style is just as inspired and multifaceted as any other time of year.
Of course, having an example helps — or better yet, make it 20. We've rounded up the coolest batch of looks to replicate now. And, snapped by YoungJun Koo, they're all on the streets of NYC from girls who bring their A-game even when Mother Nature is turning up the heat.

Virginia Slaghekke's getup is polished and perfect for the office (depending on your dress code) when the weather is 90 degrees and sunny. That is, if you're not playing hooky and heading to the beach.

We admit, it's a gamble to pick heavier fabrics and long sleeves in the summer. So, be sure to balance longer sleeves with shorter hems (or vice verse), like Jana Wirth.
