Is your wallet handy? ‘Cause season two of Outer Banks just hit Netflix, and Kiara (Madison Bailey) serves up major outfit inspiration in every. single. episode. While embarking on a whole lot of action-packed, gold-seeking, police-evading adventures with the Pogues, Kiara wears a slew of cool graphic tees, cutoff denim shorts, crop tops, and even cozy jackets, the latter of which weren’t part of her wardrobe for the show’s first installment. “In season two, we see Kiara transition into school layers, which allowed for a lot of fun with rugged jeans, funky boots, and cool cardis and jackets,” Outer Banks costume designer Emmie Holmes told POPSUGAR. “Being able to layer her up means that you get to see the full spectrum of her envy-worthy style.”
Kiara’s outfits this season feature ’70s- and ’90s-inspired pieces Emmie selected from big-name brands like Reformation, Roxy, Free People, and Quicksilver, in addition to smaller brands like Her Waves, which she discovered on Instagram while stores were closed due to COVID-19. Emmie let movies like Empire Records and Dazed and Confused guide her when piecing together Kiara’s wardrobe, ultimately solidifying the character’s status as a “nostalgic throwback queen.” So, want the lowdown on every affordable brand Kiara wears on OBX this season, straight from Emmie herself?
