Dua Lipa's Summer Style Is Almost Making Me Cry Because It's So Good

I've been a fan of Dua Lipa from the very beginning. Partly because of her fashion sense, and partly because my best friend would murder me if I didn't partake in his unwavering obsession. (It's called friendship—look it up.) I love how willing she is to experiment with up-and-coming brands and designers while somehow managing to always be one step ahead of the trend curve. Dua was rocking brands like I.AM.GIA, Dyspnea, and Marianna Senchina before the rest of the world knew about them, and for that, I love her even more.

While Dua's style has been killing the game since day one, her summer 2018 style has been off the charts. Think of every cool item, designer, and trend imaginable right now, and Dua has worn it. We're talking neon separates, Jacquemus mini bags, and more. Since my fangirl nature is no secret, I decided to dissect my favorite Dua summer outfits for you here, accompanied by the pieces you'll need to re-create her looks… if you want. Not sure why you wouldn't, but I digress.

Black Minidresses

Yeah, yeah, yeah—black minidresses aren't necessarily the newest kid on the block, but the way Dua has been rocking hers this summer is making them feel fresh again. I mean, style anything with a miniature bag that will only fit Mariah and your outfit is bound to be a banger.

Tropical Shirt

This is a trend the fashion community is loving this summer. Throw one on with jeans and sneakers or make like Dua and layer yours over a bra top and track pants.

Matching Set

I don't know about you, but if you ask me, and apparently Dua, matching sets are the easiest summer outfit. Since your top and bottom have already been covered by the good graces of the co-ord set, all you have to worry about is the accessories. This Dua look is a perfect example of how to style this go-to summer trend.

Smocked Bikini

We've discussed this trend in length on Who What Wear this summer, and it's thanks to stylish celebs like Dua that we aren't quite yet sick of the fad. This Hunza G ruffled-and-smocked bikini pictured below is sadly sold out, but we gave you an option that finishes in close second.

Animal Print

Dua, per usual, jumped on one of the biggest fall 2018 trends—animal print. Rocking this adorable tiger-print dress with neon accessories (more of those to come), let this look be your official guideline for how to wear the trend come fall.

Neons are a summer trend that took us a little by surprise, meaning come fall, we'll be ready to tackle the trend full-force. Dua, however, proved she was ready to embrace the bold color palette from the get-go.

Thought I could brave the sun in my eyes... guess not

Ruffled Minidress

A summer style everyone can wear? Ruffled minidresses. Talk about a throw-on-and-go kind of frock, ruffled minidresses make just the right amount of a statement while still being extremely versatile. We love how Dua dressed hers down with sneakers and tube socks.
