If you’re one of the ‘sun worshippers’ who’ve been yearning to go back to the beach since Summer 2020, it’s time to prepare your travel needs, review the minimum public health standards, and ready your best outfits. 

If you want to look like a beach babe or stand out on your Instagram feed, we’ve compiled a list of outfits to build your summer OOTD, with the help of our favorite K-Pop summer hits. You’re welcome!

For TWICE, an LWD is the way to go.

In Dance the Night Away, the TWICE members are wearing little white dresses that show off their charms. Our fave is Sana (second from left) who’s wearing an LWD with a low-cut top and flowy skirt.

An LWD is the perfect summer dress since it’s fresh and fun, with a hint of sexiness. If you have a well-endowed chest, try a low-cut dress that shows a bit of cleavage. An LWD with a maxi skirt suits you best if you have long legs.

Your swimwear can be a top, too.

Struggling to find a cute top for summer? Try using your swimsuit as a top, like TWICE Jihyo.

A swimsuit makes you look effortless and beach-ready in seconds. You don’t have to change your time when it’s time to swim. Just remove your bottoms, and splash away.

Statement earrings add personality to any outfit.

TWICE Momo wore dangling heart earrings to complete her beach OOTD. Aside from the earrings being totally Instagram-worthy, they also add a feminine touch.

A pair of statement earrings is an easy way to transform your look from plain jane to effortlessly chic. If you’re not fond of geometric shapes, switch it up with chunky gold hoops or tassels in eye-catching colors.

There are more summer bottoms aside from denim shorts.

There’s nothing wrong with wearing denim shorts for summer. But for Red Velvet Joy, you can switch it up with dress shorts, like her outfit in Red Flavor.

If you haven’t tried out dress shorts as a summer OOTD, you’re missing out. It’s breathable and suits all body types. It’s also a timeless closet staple since it can be worn during the chilly season with tights. 

Cropped pants are the quintessential summer pants.

Who says you can’t wear pants as a summer OOTD? Red Velvet Wendy and her blue, cropped lightweight pants beg to differ.

Cropped lightweight pants are the essential summer bottoms if you don’t want to show off your legs. It’s made of cotton or linen, letting you feel comfy no matter how hot it gets. 

You can’t go wrong with a bright-colored bikini.

Leave it to the “Nation’s Girl Group” Girls’ Generation to look breathtaking in brightly colored bikinis in Party. Our favorite has to be Yuri’s lace bikini top (fourth from left).

Cop Girls’ Generation Yuri’s OOTD with a two-piece lace swimsuit in pink. It’s a great way to stand out among the white and black garb of other beach beauties.

If all else fails, you can rock a Hawaiian-inspired top like EXO.

EXO sported Hawaiian-inspired polos in different colors and prints in Kokobop. Aside from being Instagrammable, it’s a perfect balance between casual and dressy.

Take a cue from EXO’s Hawaiian-inspired OOTD by wearing a polo or blouse in large floral prints. It’s a perfect addition to your summer OOTD and it can also be worn as a casual outfit.
