This Outer Banks costumes style guide will show you how to get the outfits from Season 2 of the show.
Having finished Outer Banks within 24 hours of its release, I honestly only have one question for Netflix: when is Season 4 coming out?
It’s safe to say Season 2 did not disappoint, and I’ll be honest, I was a little bit worried. But Sarah and John B brought back the romantic entanglements, JJ brought back the humor, Pope and Rafe stole the show when it came to dramatic performances, and Kie, yet again, had the boys running laps around her.
Having said that, the show also dug deeper into the very real issues it explored in season 1 surrounding social class tensions and, particularly, how these form along racial lines. The show did not shy away from confronting the sordid past of slavery in North Carolina and was unforgiving in its critique of the ways in which black people are still oppressed. And again, Jonathan Davis, aka, Pope, really stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park as he explored his family’s history.
It’s no surprise that Season 2 immediately skyrocketed to number 1 on Netflix in the US and other countries. (I’m sure flights to the Outer Banks must also be at an all-time high right now!) Because this summer, we’re going full Pogue… chicken-wearing-crocs flag and all.
However, with Season 2 happening over a much shorter time frame, Outer Banks Season 2 didn’t serve as many new looks as Season 1. But that makes sense since the guys mostly wore the same outfits (some orange jumpsuits and an 80s Bruce Springsteen look aside), and the girls didn’t have much to dress up for. Nevertheless, we have enough Outer Banks-style inspiration to last until the end of summer and, I guess, the start of fall.
So now all I have left to say, Alexa, queue “Left Hand Free,” and let’s start shopping for outfits worthy of Poguelandia. Here’s our Outer Banks style guide, Season 2 edition.

First… Who is Kiara Carrera?
Often referred to as Kie, Kiara is a member of the Pogues and is portrayed as an independent and free-spirited individual. She is known for her strong sense of justice and her unwavering loyalty to her friends.
Kiara is a compassionate and empathetic person, always looking out for the underdogs and standing up for what she believes is right. She is passionate about environmental causes and is seen as an advocate for preserving the Outer Banks’ natural beauty.
Who is Sarah Cameron?
On the other hand, Sarah is from the wealthy and privileged Kook community, which is in stark contrast to the Pogues’ working-class background. Sarah is initially introduced as the daughter of Ward Cameron, a prominent figure in the Outer Banks.
Despite her privileged upbringing, Sarah often feels suffocated by the expectations and constraints placed upon her. She rebels against her father’s control and seeks excitement and freedom outside her sheltered life.
Sarah’s journey intertwines with the Pogues when she falls for John B, the leader of the Pogues and the show’s protagonist. Her relationship with John B leads her to question her values and challenge the social divisions in the Outer Banks.
Kiara in the Summer
No one does summer casual like Kiara. She nails the effortlessly stylish vibe and always has a rather fun take on her outfits. Looking to switch up the crop top and jeans look? Kie’s got your back.
Style tan pants with a fun t-shirt, even a simple smiley face will do. And don’t forget the bathing suit under your outfit. You never know when you’ll have to dive off a cargo ship.
Sarah in the Summer
You could say Sarah Cameron is up on the trends. Just a few days after Vogue posted about camp shirts being the shirt of the summer, she wears one in OBX season 2. So if Vogue and Sarah can’t convince you to try this look, I don’t know what can.
Up your usual summer denim outfit with a coordinating bathing suit top and camp shirt, both of which practically screams summer. Pink and green is my new favorite color combination!
Kiara in the Fall
At some point, rather fast, it got really cold in the Outer Banks… but I’m here for it because their fall style didn’t disappoint. It might be cold, but summer colors are year-round.
This fall, color coordinate with fun summer colors, like Kie’s yellow tank top and plaid coat. Oh, and don’t forget your beaded necklaces. Pretty sure this trend started with her over a year ago.
Sarah in the Fall
To copy Sarah’s fall style, throw a cardigan over a brightly colored bralette and some baggy jeans. Don’t forget some beaded, colorful jewelry to copy her girly style.
It’s honestly so rude of Netflix to make us wait a whole year for another season of Outer Banks. Like what am I supposed to do until then? Repeatedly re-watch seasons 1 and 2 until season 3 comes out? Say less.
Also, anyone else looking to buy tickets to the Outer Banks hit me up. In the words of John Booker Routledge, “Our mission this summer is to have a good time all the time.”
