Ah, summer. Sundresses, sweaty necks, and constantly considering the practicality of the pieces you covet. Will those strappy sandals rub off your fake tan, creating a zebra effect? Are those shorts too short, leaving you sticking to the subway? Is that newsboy cap really necessary when temperatures are soaring?

Yes, to all of the above. But that doesn’t mean we don’t still want all of these things, and are willing to perform any mental gymnastics necessary for the purchase to make sense. Check out what our editor are lusting over below.
Beatrice Hazlehurst, Deputy News Editor
Despite the fact that almost all of my body heat is retained in my feet (I know it’s supposed to be your head, but that is just not the case pour moi), I am a steadfast supporter of a knee boot for summer. Still, can I justify spending over $200 on a very, very unnecessary item for this time of year? Absolutely not, but I’m probably going to buy them anyway.
Jessica Teves, Editor-in-Chief and Co-CEO
This bag feels like a bridge between summer and winter, am I right? The pale orange and white color combo feels very right now and the tweed says, “Don’t wear me until September.” It’s all good, though—I’m not buying it, but good to plan ahead (I think).
Erin Cunningham, Managing Editor
This is really unnecessary, but I also envision myself on a cool summer night wearing this in front of a fire, so maybe it’s not that unnecessary after all?!
Jennifer Hussein, Beauty Editor
There’s nothing I want more than to manifest the highest level of New York bougie. To do so, I need the staple piece to every woman’s closet: a cheetah print fur coat. But, it’s just not my time for it—the best ones are worth more than what I currently have in my bank account, they tend to be too long for my 5’2″ height, and I think I may die of heat stroke if I dare to put it on. Hopefully, I’ll have better luck in the fall (prime time for fast-fashion knockoffs).
Alyssa Hardy, Fashion Editor
I want to be in the matrix all year round with this Nanushka Vegan Leather dress. Give me a pair of combat boots and I will sweat and show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
Heartleigh Little, Editorial Director
Not entirely seasonally irrelevant but even the thought of wearing anything with sleeves in the Summer makes me sweat. I’m obsessed with everything Christopher Esber at the moment and this primary knit dress is literally all I could ever dream of.
Alix Gutierrez, Assistant Art Director
I don’t know what I’m going through.
