Dressing for summers in the city—specifically, New York—is an art of its own. On a hot, humid day, you can work up a serious sweat running errands around town, so it’s best to find a look that’s easy, lightweight, yet still put-together. (New Yorkers always look stylish—the pressure!) This weekend, model Kaia Gerber stepped out in an outfit that combined classic investment staples with fun, trendy accent pieces.
Spotted on the streets of SoHo, Gerber styled a striped button-up shirt with a micro pleated navy skirt—preppy and relaxed. Her accessories infused the look with a more youthful finish. She wore tiny, ’90s-style Ray Ban shades, and her white low-top sneakers are actually a collaboration between New Balance and sports agent Rich Paul (Fun fact: he’s also dating Adele). Her oversized checkered tote is from Bode—the cool New York menswear label that all the fashion boys are wearing. It’s a pretty cool handbag option for lugging around your water bottle, wallet, hat, and whatever else you may need for surviving a hot Manhattan day. Plus, according to other stars like Mary-Kate Olsen, micro bags are banished for good.
