The Perfect Outfit For Schizo-Weather

perfect-outfit-ny-2
With all the steamy weather over Memorial Day, it's clear that summer is finally in full swing. That said, we know good ol' Mother Nature can be testy: You never know when a cold front will come a creepin', leaving you shivering in your cut-offs and sandals. When the nights get chilly, but not brisk enough to break out your scarves and sweaters, this perfect outfit will keep you cool, calm, and collected without getting a case of the chills. We're loving how this Big Apple babe's paired feminine hues with oversized silhouettes to make an easy breezy effortless summertime that'll last her (and you) all season long.

Here are five essentials to get your perfect outfit:
Essential #1: Oversized nude blouse:—If this isn't already in your wardrobe, consider it a closet staple. The neutral color goes with just about everything and looks good no matter what you wear it with. It's the sublime solution for a day-to-night outfit switch—you know, when the temps get a little chilly and you don't wanna look like the abominable snowman.
Equipment Signature With Sleeves Nude Blouse, available at Otte, $178, 121 Greenwich Avenue (at 13th Street); 212-229-9424.
Essential #2: Floral maxi skirt—With all the short banded skirts out there, this floral maxi skirt is a refreshing twist on a summertime classic. Go for a young, fun, flirty print to avoid that farmer-girl look.
TopShop Dip-Dyed Floral Maxi skirt, $80, available at TopShop, 478 Broadway (between Grand and Broome streets); 212-966-9555.
