Jennifer Lawrence Wears Flowy Dress In NYC To Combat The Brutal Summer Heat

In case there weren't already enough reasons to be obsessed with the actress, Jennifer Lawrence wore a loose, sleeveless black dress while out and about in NYC that basically epitomizes the only aesthetic I want to achieve this summer. It's no wonder the world has fallen in love with Lawrence; she's the type of easy, breezy lady with a good sense of humor that immediately makes you want to become her BFF for life. And this outfit somehow makes her even more relatable.

Many interpretations of summer dressing include lots of barely-there, body con pieces or cute-yet-fussy, little frocks. When I think summertime, it is exactly J.Law's look — structured, black to mask my ever-expanding sweat stains, and so loose it barely touches a single part of my body — that I want to epitomize. The difference is when I wear an outfit similar to this one, it tends to look like I've accidentally swaddled myself in a tarp. When Lawrence does it, she looks sleek, mod, and highly intentional.

What's secret to her flawless high-heat look? Pairing loose volume with more structured details, like the button-down front, and keeping accessories super sparse and minimal. Which, now that I see her doing it, seems like the very obvious solution to all of my summer clothing woes.
