Breaking news: It's hot as balls in New York City, so dressing for a day that will likely feel as if you're wrapped in a blanket of heat and humidity isn't exactly motivating. Seeing celebrities traipsing about the Big Apple as if 90-degree weather is merely a social construct doesn't help either. (Exhibit A: Kim Kardashian wearing a knitted dress and thigh-high boots in the Hamptons.) Luckily, Lily Aldridge is aware of how stifling the city can get at the end of July and she appropriately dressed for it, too. Let's break down the model's prime summer look, shall we?

First, her Reformation two-piece set in white is perfectly cropped and made from lightweight linen, a winning combination that's both comfortable and chic. Her Tabitha Simmons sandals are both playful and interesting with those perforated leather details. The suede shoulder bag (from The Row and in a pretty pastel blue) is slouchy and roomy enough for laid-back summer activities. Her sunglasses are Ray-Ban, naturally, because UV protection should always be taken seriously. Lastly, Aldridge sported a sleek low bun, the ultimate sweat-proof up-do.

Celebrities, take note! This is how you actually dress for the weather. And if you want to challenge the hot drink in the model's hand, here's a little science tidbit for ya: A warm refreshment can actually cool you down.
