You all probably know by now how much I love the summer. For me, this is the best season of them all! The heat may be intolerable at times, but the whole summer vibe, there’s nothing like it. That is exactly why I love summer music videos, as they manage to capture that amazing feeling. What elevates some of these music videos above others, is the style. Fashion and music have long proved they pair so well together (just ask Rihanna or Lady Gaga). So, without further ado, here are some of the most stylish summer music videos.
Motivation by Normani
In this amazing music video full of ‘00s tributes, Normani changes a series of fiery outfits. At the beginning of the video, we see Normani in a cropped white tank top and low-rise denim. In a later sequence the starlet can be seen in a sporty pink and white matching set pared with a pair of chunky white and pink sneakers. Later outfits include a sexy fringed metallic two-piece and a black top bra, low-slung pants, and hoop earrings.
Drunk in Love by Beyoncé ft. Jay Z
This video is probably one of the hottest summer music videos. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, stylist Lysa Cooper revealed a surprising fact about the styling in the music video. As it turned out, Beyoncé was supposed to wear three outfits in the video. However, Cooper said that when Jay Z saw Beyoncé’s outfit he said to her: “You’re wearing that the whole time.” Cooper went on to say: “She looked so banging there was no need to change.” With that vintage black Eres bathing suit, see-through Wendy Nichol dress, and all the jewelry by Jennifer Fisher, we can definitely agree with that statement.
Love Don’t Cost a Thing by Jennifer Lopez
In this early J.Lo classic, we got one of her most iconic scenes. In the video, Lopez strips down all her clothes and (plenty of) jewelry to her little white cami and gold bottoms on the beach. Hot, summery, and classic J.Lo.
Señorita by Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes
This steamy music video is full of that hot summer vibe. After the dinner sequence, we see Cabello in a sexy black fishnet dress that already screams summer. While Mendes goes for white tees and tank tops paired with jeans, Cabello changes to some other steamy outfits including a floral-print silk gown, a black V-neck dress, a beige cardigan with a white tank top, and a fringe and mesh cutout maxi white dress.
All in My Head (Flex) by Fifth Harmony ft. Fetty Wap
Camilla Cabello and Normani star yet again in this hot summer music video. While Normani glows in a crochet Kiini bikini, the other four girls flaunt their one-pieces: Lauren in a floral suit, Camila with a black lace-up suit (later paired with a black fishnet skirt), Ally with a black plunge-neck one-piece, and Dinah-Jane with a green sheer mesh bodysuit that was see-through on top.
Honey by Mariah Carey
The video introduced a freshly sexualized Mariah Carey and the looks sure prove that. The hot black mini dress that hid a beige bikini under it; The sexy white two-piece made out of a strapless bra and mini skirt; The black leather bathing suit; Another white mini skirt, only this time paired with a white bikini top; And the crochet bikini.
If It’s Lovin’ That You Want by Rihanna
Is there even a list without the style and hotness icon that is Rihanna? This song is a whole summer mood and is full of very fashionable summer outfits including the purple bikini top, the sequined crop top, that long yellow skirt, and that golden metallic bikini top. Plus, the accessories like the chunky necklaces and the chandelier earrings, I can’t even!
Survivor by Destiny’s Child
Queen B at it again! This classic by Destiny’s Child was paired beautifully with a fiery and very stylish music video. The sheer cut out dresses, animal printed bikinis and matching army print camo sets made us all believe we can survive anything that comes our way.
