Keep reading to steal your fave It girls style this summer… 

Pia Muehlenbeck


Floppy wide brim hats, a simple scarf headpiece, or an old-fashioned sailor hat, no matter your preference hats are a must have staple in Pia’s wardrobe and therefore a must have in mine. What could be worse than a bad hair day, or that awful experience at a hairdresser we’ve all had right? Well now you can chuck on a hat and a pair of oversized sunnies and we’re good to go. These are my favourites from Pia and where you can buy them.

Steph Claire Smith



With over 1 million followers, a kickass body and business in boot, Steph Claire Smith is blowing up on Instagram. Although she may specialize in sport and nutrition, her bomb swimwear pieces are what catches my attention. I know a lot of you probably relate to this feeling when I say, ‘the bloat is real’ somedays and wearing a bikini doesn’t always make us feel comfortable so that’s where the wonderful creation of the one piece comes in.

Grace Palmer


Shortland Street’s hottest nurse on the screen and NZ’s coolest babe in real life. Grace Palmer is one of my favourite people I follow on Instagram and continues to amaze me with her unique style. I think culottes are the perfect all year-round pant and can be styled in so many ways. Here are a couple of my favourites as styled by Grace.
