The thought of even throwing on clothes has proven to be difficult during the sticky, humid days in New York City. And now that August has suddenly arrived upon us, we can only imagine what it's like getting dressed down in Miami. According to Awkwafina, whose recent film work includes "Crazy Rich Asians" and "Ocean's 8," you can totally wear knits in Miami during the peak of summer weather. If they have enough holes in them, that is.

The actress arrived at Univision Studios on Wednesday, where she wore a long-sleeve knit lavender sweater and skirt from Kenzo's Fall 2018 collection. The key to surviving Miami's high temperatures with such a cozy look is in the design details, like a cropped silhouette and a breathable, mesh-like style. The two-piece set was accented with sparkling crystals, which Awkwafina highlighted through matching silver heels.

The "Crazy Rich Asians" cast has been killing it on the style front during their ongoing press tour. (See our post on Gemma Chan, too.) It's the only thing that's honestly holding us over until we excitedly catch the film in theaters on August 15.
