Street Style: Now This Is How You Beat The Heat

Who She Is: Nakea
Where We Spotted Her: Browsing the Vintage Bazaar
Why We Love Her: Yes, the heat wave is back, and no, it's still not socially acceptable to wear your bikini around town. Instead, take a cue from Nakea, here, and brave the elements with charm and a touch of chic. Flowy pieces will help you keep cool, but adding a fitted top will help balance out the shape of your 'fit. We love how our street-style subject oh-so-bravely had some fun with her headgear — it adds a pop of color and gives the ensemble her own vintage flair. Top it all off with a pair of quirky sunnies, and you're ready to hit the (scorching) town.
