The season of sweaters and cozy knitwear might have arrived, but Megan Thee Stallion is still fully embracing the vibes of "Hot Girl Summer."
We've been more than happy to use Megan's hit song to inspire our choices in back-to-school wardrobe even in fall, and the star has recently revealed there's one staple fashion item necessary to fully embrace the lifestyle regardless of season: crop tops.
Speaking with i-D, the rapper explained how her upbringing inspired her signature wardrobe and revealed the two pieces she couldn't live without. "I’m from Texas and I’ve always been a big fan of booty shorts and crop tops," she said. "I’ve never got any clothes on. It’s literally how I dress and nobody can make me change if I don’t want to."
Megan isn't the only one embracing crop tops year-round either. Stars like Halsey and Dua Lipa were spotted in the "Hot Girl Summer" trend — but, with the addition of jeans and boots, both looked prepared to take on the winter chill.
In addition to tips on fashion, Megan also shared how she's remained so confident throughout her time in the spotlight. "I always thought I was the sh*t because my family always told me that I was, so can’t nobody tell me no different," the rapper said. "If you wake up every godd*mn day and your mama is telling you, ‘Oh my God, you’re so beautiful. You’re so amazing.’ That’s what you’re going to believe. So if somebody comes to me different, like, “What the f*ck are you talking about? My mama told me I was beautiful, so what are you saying?”
A possible winter spent in Megan-inspired tops aside, the star ended the chat with some serious wisdom on self-love. "Don’t ever think that there’s not somebody out there that you can relate to," she said. "It doesn’t matter if it’s your blood or a friend or just a complete stranger. There will always be somebody out there that has been through the same thing that you’ve been through – you’ve really just got to stay strong and you got to find that person. Somebody is always willing to help you, so if you ever feel like you’re by yourself, you got to tough it out for a little while. You got to be yourself. But you always going to run into somebody that’s going to give you that love that you’ve been looking for."
