No matter how hot it is outside, New Yorkers are always keeping up with the latest fashion trends. Want to create fashion envy in others? Let’s take a look at some of the hottest summer fashion trends for women in 2013–from classic to daring.


Summer in the City: 2013 Summer Fashion Trends in NYC 2Always a classic look for the summer, sheer dresses and “mullet” dresses (longer in the back than in the front) are the front-runners this season. For sheer looks that don’t shock, wear camis and other foundation garments to keep things classy. Go for lighter, ,fresher colors that fit the season such as lemon, coral, and aqua blue.


While not the best for the summer months, overalls have been all the rage this year. Try the overall’s cooler cousin–the “shortall” to dodge hot weather this time of year.


Again, not the best choice for a hot summer day, but the 2013 leather trend in a skirt or tank top takes advantage of the latest trends in style while keeping you cooler. For summer, try something trimmed with leather (such as a classic fringe) rather than a full garment made of leather.

Midi Skirts

Longer than knee-length, but still not dragging on the floor, the midi skirt is a great piece for your summer work wardrobe. Sophisticated and modest enough for the office, what’s not to like about this trend?

Stripes and Florals

Big patterns like vertical stripes and florals–sometimes stylishly clashing, will make you stand out this summer. Try combining these prints with other trends for eye-catching outfits that will make you look and feel like a runway model.


Nobody wants to be out in all black in the summer, and 2013 is a year for big color and pastels. Keep things light and fresh with a variety of hues to suit your mood. If you must wear darker colors, stick with navy blue and deep emerald with pops of summer colors in bangle bracelets, belts, or silk scarves.

Trends Change

Though trends change, always keep in mind that it’s better to dress to suit your body type than to follow each trend exactly. Not everything in style is going to work for you, so be objective when deciding whether you want in on a particular trend.

Not Comfortable in Your Clothes?

If you’re not happy with how you look in your summer wardrobe, it might be time to consider laser liposuction for those stubborn problem areas like the hips, thighs, stomach, and knees.
