It’s easy to fall in love with Rei Germar’s personal style. The master content creator keeps her one million Instagram followers (not to mention her YouTube viewers) enamored with her youthful aesthetic that marries a little bit of the ultra-feminine to fun streetwear. She also manages to adopt trends without losing this signature aesthetic, which becomes more and more apparent with each OOTD.
To decode just what the essence of her signature style is, we’ve rounded up all the pieces that Rei has used over and over again throughout the years. If you’re one of Rei’s long-time fans, take note: We’re sure you’ve got these items in your wardrobe already.
If you closely follow Rei on social media, then you know how much she loves being by the water. In fact, she even celebrated her 23rd birthday on a yacht! That said, bikinis have always been a huge part of her wardrobe, and we’ve noticed that it’s triangle bikinis that she particularly favors. Although she does wear neutral colors like white, black, and nude, Rei isn’t afraid to go for bold colors. She even loves trying out cool prints from time to time!
2. Baby tees and tank tops
In case you haven’t noticed, Rei has a penchant for '90s-inspired pieces and the aesthetic of the early 2000s. She subtly nails the vibe by copping baby tees, tank tops, halter tops, or cropped tops in pastel colors. She then pairs her top of choice with grungey, wide-legged jeans for that '90s streetwear vibe.
3. Anything with puff sleeves
When Rei isn’t wearing sleeveless tops that help her beat the heat, she’s donning puff-sleeved blouses that are just as presko. We’ve probably seen Rei wear more than a dozen variations over the years—from the largest, billowy sleeves ever to the cutest little poufs—that come in different colors and fabrics to suit her changing moods.
4. Silk scarves
The silk scarf has long been touted as a trusty multi-purpose item, but rarely do fashion girls actually adopt this into their everyday outfits. However, Rei isn’t afraid to embrace its potential. She often wears it as a tube top, as seen above, which she pairs with black leggings and white sneakers. For days when she feels like accessorizing a little more, Rei uses it as a headscarf and completes her look with gold accessories.
5. Printed long-sleeved tops
For her travel OOTDs, we noticed that Rei tends to go for printed long-sleeved tops, and they’re not just your typical stripes or polka dots. Rei favors unique prints like tie-dye, psychedelic ones, or '80s-inspired chain prints. To draw attention to her top, she wears simple jeans or trousers in an analogous color.
Another travel OOTD trend that Rei can’t seem to get enough of are pantsuits! Yup, to keep her wardrobe lean and mean, she packs pantsuits in striking colors and prints. We reckon that they’re not only so comfortable to wear, but can keep you warm if the weather gets a little chilly. Note that when it comes to choosing prints, Rei tends to go for plaid. Another nod to the '90s!
7. Chain-strap bag
If you’re a fan of Rei Germar, then you don’t need us to tell you that she is obsessed with chain-strap bags. She gravitates towards smaller sizes but chooses shapes that allow her to fit her everyday essentials. In this video, Rei reveals that two of her favorite chain bags are the Chanel Boy and Chanel Classic Flap Bag. She’s worn the latter countless times, so we’re sure you’re familiar with it by now!
