Whether you’ve already been channeling your best self these past couple of months (props to you), or you've been too busy navigating through mosquito bites, sunburns, and humidity-inducing thigh chafing (hi, yes, hello, that's me), our Hot Girl Summer's could all use a boost in the final stretch of the season.
If you’re a bit behind in your meme-age, a primer on the viral phrase of the season: Coined by Fever rapper Megan Thee Stallion, "Hot Girl Summer" is a resounding motto calling for self-confidence, owning who you are, and letting any naysayers or toxic energy fall by the wayside. The phrase even now has its own official anthem.

At its core, Hot Girl Summer is all about acting and dressing however the hell makes you feel at your best. But in case you're in need of a little sartorial inspiration, we've rounded up a few ideas to get you started.
