Did you once upon a time swear you'd never wear shorts to the office—but are you sitting at your desk in cutoffs right now, while the stickiest of all days blazes on outside? Yeah, us too. Since we couldn't figure out how to dress for this fiery weather, we asked our favorite NYC fashion bloggers for their tips on survive the heat wave with grace, style and poise. Look good, stay cool.

  • Natalie Suarez, Natalie Off Duty

    "I'm always on the go, so before I leave the house, I always spritz some good dry shampoo in my hair. If my hair is not behaving, a hat is my go-to! Because it's so hot in the city, I'm now leaning toward little minidresses. They're classic, super easy and good for work or any type of meeting. Any print, any color—I love a little dress that pops, paired with some of my favorite accessories. Paired with a classic black boot with a little block heel, I easily go from working in the day, to going out late into the night around my area of the Bowery. As for smelling and feeling good throughout the day, I always have a little bottle of perfume oil in my bag."

  • Elliot Aronow, World of #jacques

    "Best bet for everyday-dude vibes when it's shvitz o'clock is a half-sleeve madras plaid shirt with a button-down collar. It's breathable, traditional, rebellious and seasonal all at once. The loose weave will keep you cool, and the combination of colors will make you feel beautiful and chill. You can find them in many understated patterns, but we prefer them on the bolder, more assertive side."

  • Keiko Lynn Groves, Keiko Lynn

    "During the hottest parts of the summer, I live in loose, breathable cotton dresses. The more it flows away from the body, the better. Nothing is more uncomfortable than fitted clothing sticking to your sweaty skin!"

  • Sean Santiago, *fruitpunch

    "A good hat is essential for summer; I suggest a straw fedora or Borsalino for breathable sun protection when a Supreme snapback just won't cut it. Eschew the ribbon for a more contemporary look."

  • Christine Bibbo Herr, NYC Pretty

    "I try to stay maintenance-free in the steamy temps and let my hair do its thing. Either with real salt water from the ocean or L'Oreal sea spray, I love a natural beachy wave! Just surf and go!"
