The NYC Summer Starter Pack: What All the City Girls Are Wearing

Welcome to the Starter Pack series, a Who What Wear column that dives deep into the seasonal trends everyone's talking about.

There are trends, and then there are NYC trends. You might be rolling your eyes at me as you read that statement, but that just means you don't live in New York City. New York City fashion has a mind of its own, and that mindset is dictated by the cool girls who march around the city looking fly as hell no matter how gross the weather outside may be. So what does New York City summer style look like in 2018? Spoiler alert: It looks cool.

Ahead I've listed the coolest summer 2018 trends that New Yorkers are wearing on repeat as they schlepp through the city. Puffy white tops? Nah, they'd rather wear a vintage tropical shirt. Muted colors? They're opting for neon green. If you can't tell from my comparisons, the trends you're about to see (and shop) are ones that require a little bit of confidence but make a whole lot of a difference, which is why I'm sharing them with all of you—you're the perfect candidate.
