Dua Lipa proves less is more with her latest summer ensemble. On 27 Aug., the singer looked ready to hit the runway in a pair of designer micro shorts made for summer holiday. The £2,450 Miu Miu shorts featured a cheeky, high-cut silhouette and a matching suede belt fitted with a gold-tone buckle. Reminiscent of the hot pants trend of the 1970s (and later the '90s), Lipa's look was the ultimate nod to retro summer style. "Sun bum," she captioned photos of her outfit on Instagram.
Lipa isn't the only celebrity to experiment with the teeny-tiny shorts trend in recent months: Billie Eilish and Millie Bobby Brown both previously gave the trend their stamp of approval. Something about Lipa's choice to style the shorts so casually, though, accentuated the dramatic silhouette. She paired the bottoms with a ribbed Miu Miu tank top in ivory and silver jewellery, including a rhinestone necklace, a delicate watch, and multiple cuff earrings.
A day later, Lipa shared photos from a family gathering on her Instagram Stories. While grilling up crawfish and corn on the barbecue, she wore a red bodycon minidress, which she styled with layered gold necklaces and a printed bandana. Earlier this month, Lipa kept the stylish summer vibes flowing in a metallic minidress by Diesel. In July, the singer also showed some love for the "Barbie" movie, in which she plays Mermaid Barbie, during an evening out. Seemingly ready to dance the night away, she stepped out in an all-pink outfit composed of a low-neck, velvet minidress and Barbiecore thigh-high boots.
