If there something that I enjoy more than summer itself, it’s getting dressed up in cute outfits to paint the town hot pink. As of the end of June, our proclaimed Hot Girl Summer is officially in full effect (thank you for this Megan Thee Stallion). That means it’s time to get all your outfits for your summer festivities together and on a budget because saving money is real hot girl sh*t.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’m no stranger to the world of fast fashion. One of my go-to fast fashion brands at the moment is none other than PrettyLittleThing. Besides always carrying the latest and greatest trends, I love that this UK based retailer embraces women of all shapes and sizes and has excellent quality clothes for reasonable prices. They legit always have a sale going on (sometimes up to 60%) and honestly, I couldn’t ask for more. Compared to some other sites that I’ve purchased from in the past, PLT does not disappoint—10’s all across the board.
I’m a curvy gal and one of my biggest fears when shopping online is that the clothes either won’t fit or won’t flatter my shape—I have yet to have these sort of issues with PLT. In my opinion, the clothing actually runs a little big and with me usually wearing a size 10/12/L this is music to my ears. Every item in my most recent PLT clothing haul looks amazing so kudos to them!
Here are four different hot girl aesthetics that you can look forward to me rocking this summer because I’ve been waiting for the moment for far too long. P.S. I haven’t worn some of these outfits out the house yet, so when I do just mind your business and give me compliments 🙂
While some girls love wearing heels and dresses, graphic t-shirts, biker shorts, and comfortable kicks are more my speed. Here, I have on a Boyz In The Hood graphic tee (R.I.P. John Singleton—this will forever be one of my favorite movies), basic black biker shorts and Nike Huarache Runs. Don’t you just love how perfectly my Fenty STUNNA Lip Paint matches my tee?
Polka Dotted Princess
I know everyone is getting into animal prints this season, but I’m forever a fan of black and white polka dots. This bodysuit from PLT, specifically, gives off a vintage feel with a modern twist. The print and exaggerated sleeves are a match made in fast fashion heaven.
Neon is all the rage and then some for summer (and more seasons to come)—snakeskin is as well. PrettyLittleThing paired both of these trends together with this floor length maxi dress, and honestly, I have no choice but to stan. Sidebar: gurlllll, I think my butt gettin’ big.
Every time I throw on this shade of yellow, I feel like a tall glass of melaninade. This PrettyLittleThing number kind of reminds me of Beyonce’s yellow maxi in the video for Hold Up. I may have to reenact the video wearing this dress tbh.
If you’re looking to slay while saving some coins this summer, head over to PrettyLittleThing’s website to check out what they have to offer. Sidebar: they just launched a collection with my favorite princess of Hip Hop, and R&B, Ms. Ashanti and * add to cart*.
