When you think of the girl next door, someone like Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane in Spider-Man might come to mind. She’s that sweet, all-American girl whose take on style is easy and approachable. Interestingly, celebrities have been tapping into the girl-next-door look with their summer outfits—even celebs like Bella Hadid and Hailey Clauson who typically opt for edgier ensembles.
To get the look, try wearing classic prints like gingham, polka dots, or stripes. The patterns are classic and timeless, and their nod to retro style will always be in fashion. For accessories, add a pair of cool cat-eye sunglasses, a straw bag, and a simple pair of leather sandals. And finally, you can't go wrong adding denim in vintage-inspired cuts.
