Camila Mendes Just Made the Shorts From Our Childhood Vacations Cool Again
Welcome to the new Look of the Day, where we comb through every celebrity outfit from the past 24 hours and feature the single most conversation-worthy ensemble. Love it, leave it, or shop the whole thing below.
The Hawaiian flower-print short tastes like boogie-board rash, virgin piña coladas, and watching Blue Crush with your cousins for the fifth time. A simpler era, for sure, and maybe that's why we're rooting for Camila Mendes's latest outfit so hard.
On an iced coffee run in Los Feliz, LA, the Riverdale star wore a By Far Billy bag, white Adidas Falcon sneakers, a purple Adidas crop tank, a mask from Lunair Wellness, and coordinated purple Holiday the Label Happy Hawaii Pajama Shorts. Her Holiday the Label bottoms may technically be pajama shorts (they come in a set with a matching sleep shirt), but their tropical print is quintessential family-vacation, matching-with-your-sibling board shorts.
As she's wont to do, Mendes makes this slice of nostalgia look self-assured and effortlessly chic. So much so that, instead of calling our mom and asking her get our own blue-sunscreen-stained pairs out of storage for round two, we're going to adult up and get a fresh set from one of the many brands bringing boardies into 2020.
