Hot Girl Summer Guide: Affordable Must-Haves for Every It Girl

Okay girl, Hot Girl Summer is here….

And we are ready to start going out more and wearing less! We knew you would be down for a good time, so we created our Hot Girl Essentials guide, which features some of our favorite summer styles that we know you need. As the days are finally getting warmer you want to look and feel your best when you are out and about, we totally get that. So whether the Miami girl’s trip finally made it out of the group chat or your boyfriend is taking you on a tropical vacay, we have the styles you’ll want to add to your luggage. But bestie, no matter what your plans are this summer it’s time for that closet refresh, so get your credit card ready because you are going to want all these items!

Denim Wrap Skort

Word on the street is that Hilary Duff and Taylor Swift are trading denim shorts for denim skorts and we think you should too! If you haven’t noticed already, these skorts are trending right now and that’s a sign you need one too. Our Women's Denim Wrap Skort is the perfect trendy piece to add to your summer wardrobe. This skort combines Y2K style with modern elements - with an asymmetrical shape that gives this skort an edgy, chic vibe, and a high-waisted fit that flatters your figure and elongates your legs. Girls! This is what we want! When we tell you this skort is flattering, we mean it. 


How to style: Pair our Denim Wrap Skort with our All Thrills No Frills Tank Top and complete your Girl’s Night Out ‘fit. If you don’t want to show off too much, we always recommend our Take the Plunge Bodysuit, (this is very much a dupe to some of your favorites you have seen online, the material is to die for). Dress it up or down, the choice is yours!

Pull-On Cargo Pants

It’s giving utility, but cute duh! If there’s one thing about street style is that we are going to be influenced by celebs. Haley Bieber is the queen of cargos and rocking cargo pants and we love to see that. Cargo pants are made to look cool and effortless and that is something we have achieved. Our Women's Mid Rise Pull On Cargo Pants are soooo good you will never want to take them off! These are available in four different colors and they are all so cute you might just end up buying all four (wouldn't be a bad idea)!



How to style: Pair our Pull-On Cargo pants with our Back to Basics Tank Top for a cute summer look or style them with a cool graphic tee for an edgier vibe. Complete both looks with your favorite sneakers and accessorize with some jewelry and a crossbody purse!

Dream High-Rise City Shorts

These shorts belong in the city…and the streets! Well, let’s just say you can take these shorts out anywhere. Our Women’s Hybrid Dream High-Rise City Shorts are giving a casual relaxed vibe and we are loving it. Celebs like Kendall Jenner are wearing more casual comfy denim shorts and it’s really a vibe. Our City Shorts are a part of our Dream Collection which means they feature a rigid front for the perfect denim look, and a stretchy back panel for a comfortable feel. If we say so ourselves, it’s the perfect combination! These also feature some slight distressing and a frayed hem which gives it an edgier vibe. *Adds to cart*


How to style: We think that these would pair perfectly with our She’s A Natural Tank Top in white. You can also pair them with our Heart of My Sleeveless Bodysuit and complete the look with some sneakers!

Nauti Girl One Piece Swimsuit

Are you ready to make a splash at your next pool party or beach day? Cause we are, especially with our Nauti Girl Open Front One Piece Swimsuit. This swimsuit is definitely giving hot girl summer! Although this is a medium-coverage bathing suit, we think it's super sexy and the front design with the embellished metal done hardware completes the look. Our Nauti Girl swimsuit features adjustable straps, a hook closure in the back, and removing shaping pads. It basically has it all!


How to style: You can wear our Nauti Girl swimsuit to the beach or for a night out! Yes, you heard that right, it can double as a bodysuit as well. So pair it with your favorite YMI denim shorts and some cute heels and you are ready to go.

Sadie Ombre Straw Cowboy Hat

You can wear this cowboy hat to your next summer festival, for a pool day, or it can even complete your coastal cowgirl outfit. The possibilities are endless and you have creative freedom to style it however you want. Featuring a woven construction with pierced detail for a light and airy feel while shielding your face from the sun. This cowboy hat is a summer essential!

Cargo Shorts

Our Women’s Mid-Rise Cargo Shorts with Frayed Hem have entered the chat and they are not going anywhere. These high-rise shorts sometimes too tight and maybe you are not a low-rise girlie either. Well, Our Cargo Shorts are going to be your perfect fit! These have a mid-rise fit that features a perfectly snug look with a  hint of stretch because who doesn’t want to be comfortable?!
