MIDSUMMERS NIGHT | WHAT’S YOUR STYLE

Going out at night after a long day at the beach during the summer months is one of the greatest and toughest things to navigate. Working with high tempetures, humidity and groups that don’t know where they want to go next, often over shadows the knowledge that suffering through it often brings some really great memories.

So to help keep you looking and feeling cool, no matter where your night takes you, here is a few options to consider for your next midsummers night out from a few of our readers.

HIS & HER | Q&A | MIDSUMMERS NIGHT

LINCOLN MAYNE, 30 – Lower East Side, NYC

#1 WHEN HEADING OUT FOR A MIDSUMMER NIGHT EVENING WHAT’S YOUR STYLE?
My look is “Daddy Smokes”. The first question anyone should ask upon your entrance is, “Is that guy stoned?” There are many ways to achieve this look, but here’s mine: Over-sized bright color sunnies stuffed under a straw hat and beard. Loose-fitted Bali shirt, open buttoned (one more than is generally acceptable with a small tear and some of last nights jam down the front, girls love that sort of thing). Paint-splattered baggy pants rolled up over the ankle as if ready to fetch crabs or walk fire. For Jewelry, as many rosary beads as your local deli has in stock and a stick in your hair. Note, not everyone’s going to talk to you, but the ones that do… holy-moly it’s on.

#2 WHAT IS YOUR SUMMER EVENING STAPLE?
Sweat, tears, howls.

#3 SUMMER SHOE?
There’s no such thing as a summer shoe.

#4 WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS?…
Spin-dance ecstatically in the middle of a party, puffing cigar smoke out of your ears, grinning sheepishly… ladies here I come.


SUNDOWN PLATT, 25 – Brooklyn, NY

#1 WHEN HEADING OUT FOR A MIDSUMMER NIGHT EVENING WHAT’S YOUR STYLE?
In the summer I am pretty minimal with my color palette and limited with patterns. I typically go with white, tan, gold, black and a few neon colors, typically in the red family. So my midsummer evening out would most likely be my white vintage longsleeve mini-dress, with my sheer men’s button down, Naughty Moneky Zumba sandals, brown vintage bag, minimal jewelry, (wooden or gold) and to top if off with a hit of orange lip color.

#2 WHAT IS YOUR SUMMER EVENING STAPLE?
Summer evening staple would be an orange, red or dark lip color.

#3 SUMMER SHOE?
Would have to be wedge heels.

#4 WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS?…
Steal your boyfriends clothes… I love menswear!
