Gale-force winds were to blame for your unexpected fanny flash; a freakish heat wave, that sweat-soaked tank. Defend against this season’s nastier elements with NYC-based Penumbra’s prefall collection. Composed of loose-fitting tops and frocks, the breathable, jersey line drapes across shoulders and plummets gracefully down the spine. The neutral, cling-free basics are ideal for the day-to-night shift and designed to be layered — add a blazer to fend off the office AC, for example. Withstand brutal subway swamps in the knot-back tee, a slouchy twist on the classic boatneck. Or throw on the shoulder-baring dress with bat-wing sleeves for a roomy eveningwear alternative. Once you’ve reached your summer boiling point, throw these travel-friendly finds in your weekender and make a run for it. Available online at singer22.com. For more information, go to penumbranyc.com.
