The summer solstice hasn’t technically happened yet, but we’d argue that Lorde’s sunny outfit in her “Solar Power” music video last week marked the first official day of summer.
The Australian singer, whose new single came after a four-year hiatus from the music scene, is an embodiment of the sun as she frolics around the beach in a stunning, yellow two-piece set that stands her apart from the neutral-clothed beach goers around her. In the video, she maintains what seems to be some sort of cult leader-type status among the group, as she gets regally carried across the water by a group of men, and dances freely in the middle of an un-moving crowd that can’t seem to tap into her same joy. At one point, she stands over the group sitting at a table and sings: “Can you reach me? No!”
Inspired by George Micheal’s “Freedom 90,” the prettier Jesus’ bop is almost eclipsed by her stunning wardrobe. And now the world wants to know, where did she find this perfect summer look, and where can we get one?
Thankfully, the silk set made by the eco-conscious fashion brand Collina Strada is finally re-stocked after immediately selling out last week. The Monte Carlo crop top features a high neck and subtle ruching along a wire strap that runs under the breast. The matching midi skirt sits right above the hips with an invisible zipper on the side seam. The pieces are sold separately, meaning you can opt for whichever one you prefer and pair them with basics for a more subdued look. Couple the crop top with white pants or jeans for a casual summery look, or the skirt with a simpler t-shirt or bandeau if one-color fits aren’t your thing.
The set is currently available for pre-order on colinastrada.com, and will ship out in three to four weeks. Bong sold separately.[embedded content]
