Celebrity Summer Style Just Reached New Heights—7 Outfits We're Obsessing Over

We have to admit, while we enjoyed seeing (and writing about) everyone's cozy indoor looks last summer, we've gotten pretty excited about seeing the going-out looks of this year. Especially our favorite A-list stars, who have brought out their A-game this season. Whether it's a lavish vacation or a simple walk through the streets of NYC, they (and their stylists) understand the assignment. Summer isn't over yet, so I already know their looks are just going to get even better.

And as always, Rihanna will make you rethink everything you wear because you need to figure out how to dress as cool as her, ASAP. Continue on to get inspired by these celeb-approved outfits.

Assistant Market Editor
Yusra Siddiqui is an editor who resides in New Jersey but bounces between the suburbs and NYC. (She's a Jersey girl at heart.) After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
