Our fash­ion ed­i­to­rial takes on the sum­mer heat in Flat­iron with key items to in­cor­po­rate into your look from fash­ion, beauty, hy­dra­tion and lo­ca­tions that are a must via the Ath­leisure Mag team.

We have yet to hit our stride in terms of the weather. On those days that the tem­per­a­tures hit be­yond be­liev­able tem­per­au­res, you want to wear looks that keep your style easy and al­lows you to truly tran­si­tion through­out your day and on un­til the night. Our fash­ion ed­i­to­rial fo­cuses on musts from fash­ion to beauty! and the most im­por­tant part, hy­dra­tion. One of our fa­vorite parts of the city is Flat­iron which has a nu­ber of his­toric and iconic build­ings, our fa­vorite eater­ies, lounges and work­out studios! When it comes to meet­ing up with your girl­friends dur­ing the week or on the week­end, it's equidis­tant from what­ever neigh­bor­hood you're com­ing from. We have some tips to help you nav­i­gate this sea­son.

KEEP IT EASY

From a style per­spec­tive, we love rompers be­cause they al­low you to take on a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties from a meet­ing, head­ing to the of­fice, Happy Hour cock­tails, shop­ping and date night. WIth the chal­lenges of hot tem­per­a­tures you want to be able to wear an out­fit that you can pull on and not have to think about it again. Romply has a num­ber of fun prints and the way you can accessorize it makes it your own!

ACCESSORIZE!

Any look is en­hanced with the power of an ac­ces­sory. Fans of the mag­a­zine know that we love state­ment jew­elry whether stacked or worn alone. In this month's ed­i­to­rial, we show­cased an as­sort­ment of Vir­gins, Saints & An­gels which has a num­ber of pieces that have that per­fect her­i­tal look and adds great vis­ual tex­ture to your look. We also love Talia which al­lows you to cus­tom­ize your look and brings amaz­ing bling to your look no mat­ter how ca­sual or glam it is.

No mat­ter the sea­son, we be­lieve there is a boot that can be paired with what you're rock­ing. in the sum­mer, we love an an­kle boot which is a great way to elon­gate the look and for this shoot, we in­cluded Qupid which has a mas­sive col­lec­tion of shoes that are on trend across your life­style.

THE LOOK

When it's hot, we love a sunkissed glow which will only in­crease when the weather gets steamier! This looks in­cor­po­rates bronzer and fun lip hues that are neu­tral as well as vi­brant to play up your fea­tures as you choose.

For hair, we love let­ting those nat­u­ral curls flow, rock­ing those side ponys and a well placed messy do! To keep your hair look­ing amaz­ing, we sug­gest hav­ing the right tools - Bed Head Culipops 1875 Watt Dif­fuser Dryer and Hot Tools 1" 24K Gold Flip­per­less Curl­ing Wand. In terms of fin­ish­ing sprays, IGK In­tern Flex­i­ble Hair­spray, IGK Laid Back De­frizz and Anti-Static Spray, OUAI Vo­lu­miz­ing Hair Spray, Oribe Shine Light and Re­flect­ing Spray, R+Co Tro­phy Shine + Tex­ture Spray and R+Co Vis­cious Strong Hold Flex­i­ble Spray. Al­ways have Revlon Hair ties and combs on hand.

STAY HY­DRATED RE­SPON­SI­BLY

Hy­dra­tion is key and although wa­ter is al­ways our go to, when you want to switch it up, we sug­gest WTRMLN WTR which has a range of wa­ter­melon bev­er­ages that are su­per hy­drat­ing. They can be en­joyed alone or mixed into your bev­er­age of choice.

When it comes to kick­ing back with your girls, we love a chilled rosé in a can and have a few fa­vorites that in­clude: Ruza Rosé, Al­loy Wine Works -Ev­ery­day Rosé and Any­day Rosé.

JUST CHILL

Our shoot took place out­side in Flat­iron and we headed to Patis­serie Chan­son at Dessert Bar an ud­er­ground dessert bar, a ren­o­vated speakeasy which has a tast­ing menu of sweet to sa­vory desserts and phe­nom­e­nal cock­tails. We also shot at The Loft in Flat­iron which is an event space that also has a bar which makes it per­fect for a num­ber of events that you can imag­ine.
