The hot weather of a New York summer can be a trying time for fashionistas. Outfits must be cool and functional as you race around the city, desperately seeking that sweet blast of AC. Style can often take a back seat to comfort.

This month, the streets of Astoria were awash with blues, blacks and purples as overheated fashionistas sought solace in the cooler shades of the fashion palette. Check out what the most stylish Astorians are wearing this month.

Ayaka is a contemporary dancer living in Astoria. I liked how she threw an oversized shirt over her denim cutoffs to add some print to an otherwise black outfit. Chic.
