Let’s talk about being cool, shall we? What does being cool really mean? Who are the cool people in your life? Are they smart? Funny? Instagram famous? It might be the way they talk or act, or it could be the way they dress. While I can’t help you change the way you present yourself personality-wise, I can help you with how you dress. I have to be honest here: I wouldn’t really consider myself cool. But, after being around enough cool people, I can say with some certainty that being cool has a lot to do with what you wear, since you’re giving off a very specific impression.
Obviously, it’s not all about the clothes. If you’re super mean and catty, you’re not going to have that many friends, even if you have a great eye for style. But, let’s be real, your clothes are the first thing somebody sees you in, so if you want to give off a cool impression you need to wear something trendy. Clothes aren’t the most important thing about you, but they can help you change the way people perceive you. So, if you want to be perceived as a ~cool girl~ take a look at these types of clothes you should be wearing.
Holographic ClothesHolographic stuff is super in, since it makes you look like a mermaid and a space queen, even though that is impossible (right?). Try a holographic tank top this summer to look like the ~coolest!~ girl on the block. Shimmer Knit Crop Top, $9.00, Forever 21
Off-The-Shoulder AnythingThis summer trend isn't going anywhere, and if you haven't tried it yet then what are you waiting for?

Mom JeansThese high-rise "mom" jeans seem to turn any girl into a '90s celeb. I guess they used to be worn by moms in the '90s but now they signify someone who is #OnTrend. I mean, you've totally seen this look, right? You can pair them with a crop top to look like a summer queen. Super High Rise Skinny Jean $59, Urban Outfitters

Bathing Suits As Body SuitsListen, it's summer, it's hot out, you're probably heading to the beach at some point, why not wear a bathing suit at a top? It's actually really in right now. Pair a one piece with some high waisted pants or a skirt for a super cool vibes. It basically doubles as a body suit, anyway! Arie One Piece, $34.96, American Eagle
