As if the sweltering Summer months in NYC [1] don't already inspire a looser interpretation of the public dress code — bikini bottoms, playsuits, you name it — we've seen some ladies losing another layer, namely, their underwear. Whether it's a reaction to the 90°F temperatures, a desire to appear a little edgier, or just a personal preference, it's unclear. Regardless, they're clearly starting a trend in street style that's less about the clothes and more, well, about what they're not wearing.

She channeled the ease of a nightgown, even forgoing her undergarments.

Keeping it easy and breezy, sans bra.

A deep V doesn't always give room to wear a bra — that's the truth.
