There’s no doubt that summer is one of the best times of the year. It’s filled with sunshine, trips to the beach, BBQs, and hopefully, a lot of time spent outside. One of the coolest looks right now is the surfer girl style. It’s comfortable, laid back, and perfect for beating the summer heat. When trying to figure out how to rock that surfer girl style stick to a few basics:

  • Distressed denim shorts or shirt
  • Comfortable lightweight shirt (cropped, tucked-in, or tied in a knot – you don’t want it to be baggy)
  • Light on the accessories, but we for sure recommend a great pair of sunglasses

Here are 8 examples of how to rock that surfer girl style:
