This summer in the city, keep cool and be stylish in nomad-inspired fashion.
Now that NYC weather is warming up, it’s only a matter of time before those sweltering days and steamy summer nights set in. Wouldn’t it be nice to pass this summer by without looking like a sweaty mess? Appropriately, nomad-inspired fashion is one of this year’s hottest trends (pun intended). Think paisley-like prints, featherweight fabrics, and billowy cuts – anything that says, “It took me seconds to get dressed, but I still look fabulous while avoiding a heat stroke.” Give these nomad-inspired pieces a try for an effortlessly stylish New York summer.
A lightweight maxi dress.
Anthropologie has always been known for clothing that leans toward a nomadic sense of fashion. This lightweight maxi dress is no exception. With warm colors and a body-skimming silhouette, it’s the ultimate summer frock.
A classic linen shirt.
If there’s one thing every desert nomad needs in her closet, it’s a classic linen shirt. Protect your skin from the sun’s rays while basking in the comfort of loose and airy fabric.
Anything but jeans.
Summer weather in NYC can be so uncomfortable, the thought of wearing a pair of jeans is enough to make you cry. Ditch the denim until fall and embrace the wonder of wide-legged, pull-on trousers. To look extra en vogue, top a pair of these printed bottoms with a basic linen shirt for an effortlessly chic option. Bonus: Not only is combining loose tops and pants totally on-trend, but now you don’t have to worry about overindulging on the ice cream and sparkling rosé.
Breezy tunics should be a summer wardrobe staple in every city. They’ll look as good with a pair of shorts as they do with some skinny trousers. If you can swing it, invest in a designer tunic that will last you through years of blistering heat.
Casual summer sandals.
Natural materials and a neutral color palette make these sandals casual enough for everyday wear, but a platform sole offer a more fashionable lift. They’ll also make your legs look supermodel-long when worn with wide-legged trousers.
A nomadic bag.
This slouchy hobo looks like something you’d load up on your camel before making a 100-mile trek. We love the bag’s detailing and broken-in look; but, even more importantly, it’s big enough to hold anything you could possibly need while you’re out and about the city.
When harem pants attempted a comeback on the fashion scene, people instantly laughed their exaggerated drop-crotch silhouette back into the style vault. Think of these joggers as a more modern option – slightly baggy like many nomad-inspired trousers, yet sleek and refined. Add a simple tank top, put on some strappy heels, and you’re set for a stylish NYC summer filled with rooftop parties.
