The 11 Best Celebrity Outfits of Summer 2019 (So Far)

The official start of summer is still a day away, but it's felt like summer for months now, and we can all probably agree that the unofficial start of summer is Memorial Day weekend. Accordingly, celebrities have been out and about all over the world recently, wearing warm-weather looks that are just as appropriate in August (aka the dog days of summer).

It's admittedly a tough job to choose the best celebrity looks of summer when every day brings epic new ones to choose from. With Cannes and a slew of summer movie premieres, men's fashion weeks, and tropical vacations taking place as of late, there's been no shortage of stylish outfits.

This season has been all about color, dresses of every length, linen suiting, and strappy sandals, and we're here for all of it. Keep scrolling to see which 11 looks have reigned supreme thus far, and shop the key pieces needed to re-create them.
