20+ Weekend Outfit Ideas From Real Girls

Photographed by Karla Garcia.
Aside from treating ourselves to summer sales and indulging in food-court eats, one of the main reasons we hit up the mall is to glean some sartorial inspiration from our fellow shoppers. And, the first leg of our cross-country shopping tour with Simon Malls did not disappoint. As we hopped from city to city, our Style Festival started to look more like a style throwdown. West Coasters brought it at Brea Mall in Cali, and Austin and Miami responded with their distinct southern ensembles. After taking note of some of our favorite looks, we jammed to performers like Twin Shadow and MS MR and got down to the real business of our visit: retail therapy.

Peep the style highlights ahead — like patchwork-print rompers, monochromatic sets, fresh denim, and colorful bucket bags — and check out the remaining stops on our tour here. Hope to see y'all there!
