While we have yet to crown the song of summer 2016, we've got good feelings about a few contenders. Aside from the fact that they just make us want to get up and dance, there's a little fashion lesson to be learned from every single one. So, we figured why not pick out a few outfits inspired by the pieces we’ve had on repeat for weeks?
Consider these five looks our take on summer's standout hits, each with their own fashionable tweak. Whether it's a Beyoncé-inspired lemon print or a little something you can wear to work work work á la Rihanna, choose your summer jam and then get to shopping! Also, we included videos of the songs themselves, all for your listening pleasure (you’re welcome). Now every time these beats come on, your mind will go right to what you want to wear.
Check out our picks for summer's big hits—and their companion outfits—below!
Embrace your inner Bey by rocking a little lemon print along with accessories that tell the boys (or really everyone) bye. Sunglasses are ideal for blocking any shade headed your way, and who doesn't love a statement pair of shoes?
Let's be honest: If it were up to us, we'd have a closet chock-full of all of our favorites designers (one "i"), and Desiigner's "Panda" is the song that is all about treating yourself. Whether it's a fancy new clutch or a standout pair of heels, we say just do it.
If you've got Drake's latest hit on repeat, we know you're ready for more than just one dance—at least a whole night's worth. That's why your go-to look is an ensemble you can move in while still looking like the star of the party.
We know it's not exactly what Rihanna meant when she was talking about work, but come on, we all need a great outfit for the office. A fashion-forward dress and trendy (but boss-approved) pair of heels are the winning combo for this song.
When we think of cheap thrills, we're imagining a weekend date involving a picnic, a visit to the fair, or something equally laid-back yet totally fun. If you're going to dress the part, opt for a simple and summery top and cutoffs. You can't go wrong with the classics.
