Take linen, for example. It’s hard to ignore the simple beauty and sheer practicality of linen. When it’s over 90 degrees outside and a thick haze gathers over the city streets, there are few materials you’d rather wear more. So wear it while you can, and be bold about it. May as well pull out all of the stops. This ‘Open Weave Shift Dress’ by Thakoon is bright and light, a perfect pick for a day-to-night choice. Don’t miss out on one of your few remaining chances to don this summery look.

The only fabric capable of rivaling linen’s summer symbolism is eyelet. Maybe it’s those delicately perforated holes in a light fabric that makes eyelet so breathable and wearable during the summer. These would be the same holes that you couldn’t possibly wear during those brutal winter gusts. Feeling the chill already? Hopefully, not just yet – which means you still have the chance to wear the ‘Flock Eyelet Short’ from New York favorite, Steven Alan.

This popular summer choice may stir mixed emotions among fashionistas, for many have disregarded fashion law and incorporated them into their winter wardrobe. You guessed it, white pants. To wear or not to wear after Labor Day? We refuse to take sides here at Tracy’s New York Life, but we will say that if you’d like to play it safe, wear the heck out of them during these few, remaining weeks of summer. These ‘Looker Crop Jeans’ in white from NY boutique, Poppy, will give you the chic edge you’ll need to finish the summer on a fashionably high note.

So when browsing your closet these next few weeks, resist the urge to skip ahead and put on that burgundy sweater. Instead, savor the last days of this NYC summer with that eyelet dress that will shortly find it’s way into storage, until next year.
