It’s not so bad in the early morning with temperatures quickly peaking midday and gradually cooling down into the evening with the sun, setting slowly behind the iconic Manhattan skyline—this means summer in the city is finally in full swing! Drawing from Céline’s spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection’s monochromatic and clean designs, combined with my deep rooted appreciation for simplicity and structure, I’ve put together the perfect outfit to transition from hazy New York City summer mornings to happy hour specials downtown (one dollar oysters? Sign me up!), inspired by the structure and refinement of the city itself.

This Native Youth culotte jumpsuit from Urban Outfitters is the best thing to happen to my summer wardrobe. It’s light, structured, sleek and most importantly adaptable—I stay perfectly comfortable in the early a.m.’s when grabbing that first cup of coffee of the day, keep cool through the afternoon and arrive at the end of the day still looking poised and sharp for happy hour specials; even after New York’s infamously long and tolling summer days. If you’re like me, and sometimes the structured cut silhouette is a little stiff for you, throw on a thin black waist belt to show off your body shape without losing the refined form of this beautiful piece. My love for simplicity, cohesiveness and clean lines shines through when I tie my outfit together with a simple black velvet choker, top it off with a city wardrobe staple—the structured black Panama hat—and finally, (figuratively and literally) raise the entire outfit to the next level by sliding on my favorite wide strap flatform sandals.

This outfit will have you feeling like you are one with the city, built upon the simple concrete foundation of being comfortable, being sleek and bringing out the poised, defined side of you. Don’t fall victim to New York City’s seemingly endless summer heat and humidity, it is completely possible; you can look as breezy, refined and effortless as you wish you were all throughout the day.
