Jennifer Lawrence doesn't strike us as the type of girl who can be bothered with uncomfortable clothes that cling and stick to her body on a steamy day. It can essentially rend a person miserable simply out of discomfort. We wouldn’t put up with it — and we don’t think she would either. Instead, we’re taking cues from how the actress stepped out in NYC today, one of the hottest days we’ve had so far. The trick to her sartorial bliss? Clothes that don’t touch the body. Lawrence’s loose-fit, button-down dress has an A-line shape. There’s nothing body-skimming, nor does it require any special kind of underwear beneath. This thick-strapped, bell-shaped style is light, simple, and will actually allow a girl — and her body — to breathe. But, while Lawrence seems like the kind of non-fussy dresser who could live in a throw-on-and-go summer look like this, the most important parts of the ensemble are the subtle, simple touches that tie it together. A Coach sandal with a leaf-shaped strap is practical but not boring; a layered, long necklace adds shine and polish without really having to add much at all; and a chic, cat-eye frame can make anyone look a little more movie-star-like. It's something to keep in mind, ya know, in case you're not actually Jennifer Lawrence.
