Megan Thee Stallion is still in “Hot Girl Summer” mode even in the dead of winter. She’s featured on Vogue Runway talking about selling her Hot Girl Summer wardrobe on Depop and her ascension to the top of the female rap pack. The 24-year-old rapper out of Houston, Texas says “Being a Hot Girl is about being unapologetically YOU, having fun, being confident, living YOUR truth, being the life of the party, etc.”

A million memes were born and “hot girl summer” became common jargon for, well, a lot of different things: hotness, coolness, fearlessness, and so on and so forth. It also came to define a certain sense of sexy and wildly bold style, one that Pete became the official spokeswoman for.
Now, the rap sensation is giving some of that hot girl magic to her fans. She’s partnered with Depop, the global social shopping app featuring independent sellers, on a special sale of items from her closet, as well as items from the “Hot Girl Summer” and “All Dat” videos. Launching Friday, the sale is Texas-themed, in honor of Pete’s home state, and also includes pieces from Depop’s top sellers in the Houston area.
The curated shop is called “Texas Fever” and it includes items like Pete’s red cowboy hat and matching fringe-and-fur-trimmed mini dress, as well as a vintage Mickey Mouse University jacket, denim shorts, and body chains. Pete says she was happy to collaborate with Depop because the app “gives the creative community something big that they can be a part of.” She adds, “The creative community in Houston is kind of hidden, you wouldn’t even know there are so many young people here designing and selling their own clothes.”
Pete says that she’s “all about the eco-hottie vibe. I can find vintage pieces and not have to buy something new. I’ve been trying to use less plastic after my beach cleanup last year and I’m definitely going to try and buy more cool vintage pieces now that I’m on Depop.”
Pete has always been a fan of vintage clothing, especially classic Texan wardrobe staples like cowboy boots, hats, and chaps. “Those are the things that never go out of style and will always be in my closet.” Her personal style muse? “Beyonce is the O.G. Houston hot girl,” Pete explains. “I love how she always gives love to Texan style, even on the red carpet.”
So will “Texas Fever” become the latest viral phrase from Pete? She’d like to think as much and hopefully, her Depop sale will help shine a light on that “hidden” creative community in Houston. As Pete defines it, “‘Texas Fever’ is about celebrating the Texan attitude.
It’s about big hoops, big hair, we got the whole cowboy and cowgirl aesthetic that everyone now wants to wear, but we all know who started it first. I definitely think Texans have a unique style. I mean, everything’s bigger in Texas!” Spoken like a true hot girl.
Meg teamed up with Coach last year, now Vogue Runway. 2020 is bright for the young stallion.
