HBO's Insecure

We’re halfway through summer but BBQ season isn’t over yet. I’m the type of person who wears summer outfits year round. All I need is a cute headwrap, shoulder baring dress and I’m good.

One of my biggest inspirations for summer style is Issa Rae’s character on HBO’s ‘Insecure’. If you love this show as much as I do, you’re more than aware about how fly her closet is. From the unforgettable drama to all of the woke tees Issa Rae rocks, everything about this show is relatable.

What’s wrong with getting a little summer fashion inspo from the pros?

Summertime is the perfect excuse to make bolder choices that you wouldn’t get away with in colder weather. Wear that sexy lip color! Rock that crop top!

It’s time to put away your love-worn romper that you’ve been rocking all summer, and get ready to shake up your closet with these pieces.

  2. This is a wide selection of options for BBQ season. I see a few that I would totally wear this summer season to a BBQ event. Heck, I’d probably wear a couple in the Fall BBQ season too!

  5. Oh I love a good fringe blouse and cutout jumpsuit. I especially love the jumpsuit cause it’s still cute but comfortable and you’re able to participate in the bbq party at ease.

  10. I really liked the jumpsuits you shared. The colors were summer perfect. The only thing stopping me from making the purchase to buy one right now is being in a public place and needing to use the bathroom.
