Kiara Carrera from “Outer Banks” is the epitome of casual, carefree summer style. As queen of the surfer-girl aesthetic, Kiara (portrayed by actress Madison Bailey) is essentially a walking PacSun ad, rocking an array of graphic tees, patterned bikinis, crop tops, and cutoff denim shorts during the treasure-hunting adventures she embarks on with the Pogues. Plus, she always remembers to kick her laid-back, beachy outfits up a notch by accessorizing with her signature beaded choker necklaces — and in season three, a pendant or two that’s layered to perfection. Even when she makes a statement in a burgundy silk dress by SER.O.YA in the first episode, replete with a thigh-high slit and metallic shoes, her necklaces never come off.
Much like her best friend-turned-arch-nemesis-turned-friend-again Sarah Cameron (Madelyn Cline), who flaunts her own brand of cool, Kiara’s clothes are relatively affordable in real life, hailing from retailers like Urban Outfitters, Target, Billabong, PacSun, Amazon, and O’Neill. Actress Bailey, 24, brings her Pogue look offscreen when she’s off-duty, opting for crochet throwovers, cutout bralettes, denim, and sneakers. And we don’t blame her for being inspired.
In honor of Kiara’s effortless style — curated by costume designer Emmie Holmes — we tracked down where to shop some of the exact pieces her character wears in season three of the Netflix teen drama. Get the full scoop on her wardrobe ahead, then reminisce on her full fashion evolution by gleaning all the details from seasons one and two, as well.
