Guys, the heat is on. And there's more to do than lug your AC into its regular window and stock up on sundresses as the mercury slowly creeps higher and higher.

In the next few weeks, we'll be teaching you how to style yourself for the heat (without looking like you're half-naked), plan the best outdoor parties, optimize your smartphone for summer, and, of course, pack the best picnic basket ever. So, keep checking back for our New Summer Essentials and consider your seasonal mischief managed.
