We have a lot of time on our hands these days. But, reruns of old favourites like Gossip Girl, The O.C. and Pretty Little Liars just isn't cutting it anymore. Netflix heard our cry's, releasing a new teen drama that's already been likened to some of our favourite vintage series.
Outer Banks takes place on North Carolina's idyllic Outer Banks: sunny and beachy but with a major class divide. You're either super rich or working two jobs in this town, per narrator John Booker Rutledge (Chase Stokes). The central characters in this story are in the latter category, which is why when they find out John's missing father somehow acquired $400 million in gold, all hell breaks loose. What transpires is an all-out treasure hunt, mixed with saucy romance and clash collisions between the Outer Banks' wealthy and working class.

But, what's really captivating is John B's impressive collection of Hawaiian shirts. This was no accident, with the show's costume designer Emmie Holmes being behind the resurgence.
"Our style on Outer Banks is unique and most importantly obtainable, and that’s something that was top on my list,” Holmes tells InStyle US. “I think the level of comfort in our
style is perfect for this summer."
And while Netflix hasn’t renewed Outer Banks for a second season yet, creators Josh Pate, Jonas Pate, and Shannon Burke have more adventures up their sleeves for the beloved Pogues.
Apparently Holmes has been thinking about costumes for season two since the day they wrapped filming, so get ready for some new trends to emerge.
