Summer in the city doesn't leave many fashionable options for those who wish to remain cool, but accessories maven Olivia Palermo (of course) has the perfect outfit for combatting the hot and sweaty NYC summer streets.

A crisp white dress is a light and breezy choice, but we especially love that Olivia's has a tie-front -- makes for a little extra flair. Wearing lots of clunky jewelry never feels quite right in the heat, so a statement necklace is your best bet -- not to mention, takes away from the stark whiteness of your frock.

Olivia is a gal who never shies away from flats, and we commend that. Sacrificing comfort for fashion, unless it's a really special occasion, is never a good idea. A pair of plain leather flats like Olivia's make for easy commuting around the city. Lastly, a big straw carryall looks chic and will put you in a lounging by the beach frame of mind. Don't forget Olivia's signature cat-eye sunglasses (preferably in tortoiseshell) to top it all off.
