Meghan Myhal


The summer’s already in full swing and in just a few months, we’ve already seen our fair share of trends come and go. Some of our favourite new artists have been showing off some new summer styles, and we’re super inspired to try our own version of these looks. Check out five summer trends we’re trying our hand at, inspired by the year’s biggest breakout acts.

And to help with your midsummer makeover, Virgin Mobile is here to help you break out of your own style, without breaking the bank. Virgin Mobile Members get Member Benefits, like exclusive deals and discounts on fashion brands that can help you get the look you want for less.

Lizzo – Neon

Lizzo’s had a great year so far, with major success after the release of her song “Truth Hurts” and performance at the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Although she’s been releasing bops for a few years now, this has been the season of Lizzo, and she’s making a statement everywhere she goes with her neon threads. To get some neon for yourself, you can buy anything neon from cropped tees to bright leggings at Ardene. Virgin Mobile Members get an extra 20% off on top of most promotions, both in-store and online.

Lennon Stella – Layered Jewelry

Canadian singer Lennon Stella has her Instagram aesthetic down to a tee, and her selfies almost always include some strategically styled necklaces. Whether you’re a golden girl or silver is more your speed, layering necklaces and chunky earrings add a touch of glam to even the most low-key looks. 

Lil Nas X – Cowboy Chic

Since Kacey Musgraves dropped Golden Hour and Mason Ramsey yodelled in a Wal-Mart, cowboy culture has slowly made its way back into the mainstream. No one does it better than breakout star Lil Nas X, who always shows how to make country look cool with his colourful suits and classic cowboy hats.

Rosalía – Matching Sets

After a wildly successful 2018, Rosalía is continuing to ride the high through 2019, dropping new videos and singles, including the infections “Con Altura.” From her music to her style, she’s got it all figured out. When dressing up or dressing down, sets are always a good idea. No need to worry about what matches and what doesn’t when you have your whole outfit right in front of you. Stop by Boathouse to cop some more casual sets. If you’re a Virgin Mobile Member, get 20% off regular-priced items, in-store and online.

King Princess – Blazers

Following the massive success of her song “1950,” King Princess is finally getting the recognition that she deserves. No one looks cooler in a blazer, fitted or oversized, than the Brooklyn-based singer. To snag a similar style, Frank And Oak has everything you need to rock some blazers and look good doing it. Virgin Mobile Members get 20% off regular-priced items at Frank And Oak, in-store and online. Members can also get up to $25 off on Style Plan by Frank And Oak subscription boxes.
