Weekend getaways to the Hamptons can be heavenly, but that's not just because of all the Barefoot Contessa brioche. Let's be honest: As New York women, we know the trials of 105-degree subway platforms—the streaked mascara, the makeshift magazine fans, and the criminally ineffective antiperspirant—and it's the escape that we crave. So, to actually beat the transit heat, we've called in a trusted summer staple: the romper. Yes, you loved it for that music festival, but it's just as effective for braving the city as it was for surviving those crowds. It's the perfect not-too-dressy go-to, transitioning easily from beach fun to beach cocktails. Oh, and don't forget the fact that it's super easy to pack (for when you do actually make that 5:15 p.m. Jitney).
