We've been on a sunshine streak here in New York City, which means that it's finally time to officially bring all our warm-weather outfits out of winter hibernation.

The results? Some pretty prints, breezy maxi skirts, and- predictably- about a zillion ways to wear your denim shorts. Consider this a lesson in Summer Dressing 101.
