The Best Pieces in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for a ‘Tomato Girl Summer’


Us Weekly has affiliate partnerships so we may receive compensation for some links to products and services.

It’s Tomato Girl Summer! From cottagecore to the coquette aesthetic, we’ve seen numerous fashion trends go viral on TikTok — but TGS might be our favorite yet.

Tomato Girl Summer doesn’t imply contracting a painful sunburn or eating caprese salads and sandwiches every day (though it fits in well with the latter). It’s more about a coastal, Mediterranean vibe. It’s romantic yet carefree. It’s season two of The White Lotus… without the drama. It’s light and breezy — but sometimes bold. It’s giving summer rom-com main character energy!

Get a better handle on the trend with our picks below — all marked down in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale right now!
