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

@obx

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

@obx

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

@obx

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

@madisonbaileybabe

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.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

Everybody reads books (when they are not watching Netflix, chatting on social media, or making Tik Tok videos) to distract themselves from reality for a while. Many do not realize the positive impact that books have like reducing stress, assisting with sleep, improving cognitively, and strengthening the mind. In honor of National Book Day, there are many great novels that you can read to mark this special holiday. Here are the best ones to check out.

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).

Netflix

"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

We have got to create a safer work environment for people with disabilities.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
