It's currently exactly 70 degrees in New York City and we've noticed something interesting: it seems to be the temperature tipping point that lets everyone comfortably dress exactly how they want to, and that's a pretty wide divide.

After a hot summer, 70 degrees feels just cool and refreshing enough to break out a sharp fall jacket and light scarf combo, but it's also plenty warm enough to keep on rockin' your summer separates if you're not quite ready to let go.

On the street today, we've seen everything from leather boots paired with a trench to a shirtless, short-shorted runner, and everything in between. Let's all enjoy this while we can. Soon it'll be snow boots and mittens whether we like it or not.

As we all know, fashion thrives on what's new and what's next so it's not surprising that the same stylish person who would snag the chance to transition to fall when the temps dip to 70, would also break out the spring skirts and tanks when it finally climbs to 70 degrees again come April or May. Just goes to show that what you feel like wearing is just as much about your state of mind as it is purely about form and function.

Tell us, when do you finally break out next season's duds? What is your temperature breaking point?
