Maybe we've dragged summer a little too hard over the past couple of weeks. Sure, the season can be hard on hair and skin and electricity bills (central air is the dream, people)—but we kid because we love. Summer is the season of short work weeks and socially appropraite tequila consumption. Who doesn't love that? And even though it feels like it's almost over, summer isn't as short as everyone makes it out to be. It's gonna be hot until October, folks. Which means you'll have to get a bit more mileage out of that warm-weather section of your wardrobe. You're only halfway through (OK, maybe 65%), so here's some more inspiration for what to wear while the mercury level is up too high to not sweat every time you step outside. Thank us later.

The Fort Tilden

Going to a beach in Queens can be cool. Particularly if you're going to Fort Tilden (arguably the coolest Queens beach at the moment). But if you're going to a beach in Queens, remember that it's not the Hamptons and dress accordingly: a cool, comfortable two piece made for tanning (in black, because you're in New York), and some rough 'n tumble denim for when the sun goes down.

The Slim Aarons Muse

Less Fort Tilden; more Hearst Castle. Complete the look with Jeffrey Toobin's new American Heiress for poolside reading.

The Green Thumb

You know how Ina Garten has those amazing gardens on every side of her Hampton's house? You would wear this, too, if you were cooking for Jeffrey.

The "You Can't Wear A Bikini To Dinner"

Ball this up in your weekender—along with a bottle of wrinkle spray—and pretend like putting on real clothes after a day at the pool isn't the most painful experience in the world.

The Not-Black Bikini

C'mon. Live a little.

The Half-Dressed

Business on the bottom, yacht party on the top. Situational versatility is always chic.

The Physical Sunscreen

Also protects against: killer mosquitos.

The Hawaiian Shirt

Because if Tom Selleck in Magnum P.I. isn't your summer style goal, then you can stop reading right now.
