Check. Beyonce’s off the shoulder outfit — which appears totally effortless — is basically what every single one of us has been trying to achieve for all of our own poolside activities this season. Leave it to her highness to take all of the summer’s hottest trends and combine them in one Instagram photo. Off the shoulder top? Check. Wide-leg linen pants? Check. Head-to-toe matching set?
She topped off her look with a flower crown (or, in this case, a flower halo… because, ya know, Beyoncé), hung out by a pool in some sort of enchanted fairy garden and for the zillionth time in her life became an emblem of #goals.
The flowy look was feminine and bohemian, and totally different from the leather and metal getups she’s been wearing on stage lately. It’s times like these that we’re all reminded that Queen Bey is, in fact, human, and even she needs a break from wearing uncomfortable clothes.
… To be clear, she wore heels with her outfit, but still. It counts.
Here is the original photo @Beyonce posted to her Instagram earlier today:
Has anyone ever looked more perfect dipping their toes in a pool?
Because we all want to be Beyoncé — and if we didn’t before, everyone’s SnapChat videos of the Formation Tour these past few weeks have definitely solidified it — but can’t exactly afford to live like Beyonce, here are five ways to get Beyoncé’s off the shoulder look for less.
1. For An Almost Identical Version
Mara Hoffman Pinwheel Stripe Off-The Shoulder Top, $109, and Wide Leg Cover Up Pants, $255, Amazon.com
This Mara Hoffman set is pretty much identical to the one Beyoncé’s wearing (it mayyyy actually be the same one, but don’t quote me on that) and has the same airy vibes. The fabric is light and sheer, which makes it perfect to throw on to lounge around in after a day at the pool or the beach.
2. For A Beach-To-Bar Version
House of Harlow x Revolve Bree Crop, $110, and Mova Pant, $130, Revolve.com
Another celeb who is on board with this trend? Rachel Zoe. Her House of Harlow x Revolve collection offered a blue and white pinstripe off-the-shoulder set, but this version is a bit more structured. Perfect for a night out at the beach bar!
3. For An Un-Cropped Version
Linen Dress, $169.00, and Lace Trim Studio Trousers, $69.90, Zara.com
Looking for this sort of laid back vibe, but not into crop tops? Try this set from Zara, which offers a longer top (which can double as a dress or beach cover up) and lace-trimmed flowy pants.
4. For The Skirt Version
Ava Two Piece, $198, Reformation.com
Pants by the pool not your thing? Try this maxi-skirt version, from Reformation. It’s also the perfect outfit for a casual daytime wedding or weekend brunch, so you’ll be sure to get a lot of wear out of it all summer long.
5. For The Classic Seer Sucker Version
Off The Shoulder Poplin Top, $29.90, and Striped Studio Culotte, $69.90, Zara.com
Zara’s entire spring collection is basically different variations on blue and white wide-legged pants and off-the-shoulder crop-tops, including this classic striped set. We have a feeling that thanks to Queen Bey, they’ll be sold out in no time.
