Outfits Based on Songs of the Summer

By Gabrielle Gunter

There are many places to draw inspiration for outfits from, but this summer, turn to today’s top hits for ideas! These songs all have the perfect summer vibes, so it is time to use them to inspire the perfect summer outfits.

Ava Max’s “Million Dollar Baby”

When choosing between two popular songs titled “Million Dollar Baby,” the pop song stuck out to this author because pop songs are perfect for this hot summer. For this song, choose simple white tops like the one worn in the music video – they are perfect for keeping cool and looking cool this summer. This song calls for simple colors like black and white which can help one to look super sexy and sleek this summer.

Chappell Roan’s “HOT TO GO!”

The summer heat is killer and so is this song. At number thirty-eight on the Billboard Hot 100 along with many others of her songs, Chappell Roan’s “HOT TO GO!” was ultimately the best choice to represent this summer. Chappell Roan is the newest pop princess and is known for her over-the-top fashion. To embody this song, search closets and stores for clothes based on Chappell Roan’s hot outfits from the “HOT TO GO!” music video. Don a blue and gold outfit based on her leotard or perhaps a green dress similar to what she wears as she dances to the lyrics. Dress in a way that makes oneself “HOT TO GO!” this summer!

Charli xcx’s “365”

Charli xcx’s album “BRAT” has taken Twitter by storm. Memes and tweets abound. The lime green is the most noticeable aspect of the album cover which is why a lime green statement piece is the perfect piece for this song. When this song comes on, chunky lime green tennis shoes and lime green club kid boots, such as Demonias, come to mind.

Megan Thee Stallion’s “BOA”

Megan Thee Stallion’s “BOA” draws a lot of inspiration from Otaku and nerd culture which is why it is time to take inspiration from one’s favorite nerdy obsession for this outfit. A lowkey, closet cosplay is perfect for this song. Choose a favorite Street Fighter character or a character from another favorite franchise and use what is already in one’s closet to match the character’s outfit.

Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso”

At number four on the Billboard Hot 100, “Espresso” is an extremely summery song. In the music video, Sabrina Carpenter dons everything from a little white dress to a beautiful bathing suit. As swimming is a summer activity, take some inspiration from Sabrina Carpenter, and wear some adorable swimsuits this summer. Perhaps, a vintage, white one-piece is the vibe, or a two-piece with ruffles is. Whatever one chooses to wear to the lakeside or pool, remember that everybody is a swimsuit body.
