It's easy to default to beachwear and (much) less-is-more outfits during the hottest months of the year. But, just because the mercury's hitting the fan, that doesn't mean your personal style POV has to suffer.
This season calls for mega-bright colors, airy dresses, and, of course, a sweet set of shades that can keep you cool while you look (and, okay, possibly feel) hot.
To gather some inspiration for the heat-advisory days ahead, we took to the streets of New York and Toronto to snap locals who have summer style down pat. Go ahead and recreate them all for yourself. In this case, it's totally okay to be a copycat.
