Queen Kie is all I want to be.

5 Fashion Essentials Every 'Outer Banks' Fan Needs To Become The Next Pogue Queen

When Outer Banks first hit viewers' screens a few months ago, every teenage girl and her best friend wanted to be Sarah Cameron.

Sarah Cameron makeup tutorials began to surface on YouTube, along with style guides on Instagram that showed you where to buy that striped, wrap dress that she wore on her trip with John B to Chapel Hill.

However, nobody seems to be talking enough about our other favorite character, the original queen of the Pogues.


I personally preferred Kie's laid-back, summery style over Sarah's preppy, beachy looks throughout the show.

If you're like me and want to become the next Queen of the Pogues, here are some of my personal favorite pieces that were essentials Kie rocked throughout the Netflix Original's debut season, and how to replicate them!

1. A Simple, Patterned Bikini


With a huge chunk of this action-packed show being filmed on the water, all of the characters needed to wear their swimsuits underneath their normal clothes in case there was an opportunity where they needed to hop on a boat (which was literally in every episode).

But, a Pogue Queen doesn't need those extra frills or a tiny string swimsuit- she needs something practical for when she has to dive into the marsh to help her buds.

And who said Sarah Cameron was the only one who can rock stripes? Kie looked so good in this striped bikini. Here is another top, paired with matching bottoms that we can also imagine Kie would wear.

2. A Classy, Formal Gown


Pogues can get dressed up sometimes too! During the Midsummers episode, it was nice to see all our favorite characters, both Pogues and Kooks, all dressed to impress.

Kiara looked stunning in this long, lavender silk dress. Here is another, more affordable dupe that's a little bit cheaper than the one Kiara is sporting in the picture above if you still want to recreate her look from the party.

3. A Durable, Solid-Color Bandana


If there's one thing that Outer Banks set trending again, it's the bandana. The Pogue boys have also been caught with this wardrobe staple in many of their outfits, around their necks, or even styled as a headband as JJ did here.

As an accessory, the headband bandana adds a fun, summery flair and a pop of color to any outfit, and is extremely practical when you and your friends are constantly on the move while running from Kooks.

To recreate this, all you need to have is get some spare fabric. Cut and measure it so that it fits your head, before tying it and voilà! You've got yourself an easy, DIY headband.

4. Beachy, Handcrafted Jewelry


Most of Kie's wardrobe gives off a more casual, laid-back vibe compared to Sarah's, and the jewelry she pairs with many of her outfits shows off her environmentalist, free-spirited personality that we love.

Layered necklaces, simple charms, and beaded pieces are staples in her closet. Here is a collection on Etsy where you can find natural, beachy chokers similar to the ones that Kiara is wearing here.

5. Easy, Comfy Tops


Most of Kiara's tops throughout the show are easily paired with some classic denim shorts, ranging from slightly, baggy t-shirts to breathable, cropped tank-tops. The versatility, yet simplicity of her outfits somewhat follows the VSCO girl aesthetic, but adds in her own naturalist vibe and the beachy setting that the show is in.

Super cute and Pogue Queen chic.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
