On Our Radar: Beach Ponchos-------
There’s a heat wave in NYC, and the only places I want to be are inside with the AC on or by the pool. Being the sun worshipper that I am, I would take the second option in a heartbeat. But what to wear by the pool? I take my cues from Lisa Marie Fernandez‘s Resort collection. Last week, when I stopped by to see it, I was surprised by all of the new silhouettes and fabrics that expand upon what she has previously done. Fernandez built her name in the swim market with her neoprene, surf-inspired pieces. This time around, she changed her look completely. The must-have item is the terry-cloth poncho, which comes in colors ranging from earth tones to neon orange. Sadly, we have to wait until November to get our hands on it, but for now, here are two great lightweight options from Lemlem ($200, available at Lemlem.com) and Club Monaco ($98, available at ClubMonaco.com) that will keep you cool right now.
