Have you heard of hot girl summer? 2021 is officially hot girl summer and the aesthetic which was first made popular by Megan Thee Stallion, is all about body positivity and self-love. The looks are risky and fashion-forward and celebrities are already on board with the trend. Here’s how to embody the aesthetic.

Low-Rise Pants

We never thought there would be a day we’d be wearing low-rise pants again, but they’ve become associated with the hot girl summer aesthetic and they’re certainly sultry. Celebrities like Normani and the Hadid’s have been wearing the ’90s trend.


Corsets come in and out of fashion and we can’t help but think Bridgerton made them popular again. Instead of being restrictive, they’re now a statement-making piece that fits into any wardrobe.


Cutouts have been super popular on the red carpet with Zendaya, Ciara, and Megan Fox wearing them. They’re daring and bold, showing the perfect amount of skin.


Lace-ups, midriff flossing, mesh tie-pieces—ties are one of the hottest trends this summer and they’re really figure-flattering.

Belly Chains

These dated accessories have been reinvented by Chanel and Fendi with celebrities like Hailey Bieber rocking them. They also pair so well with low-rise pants.
