Ellie Thumann is that girl. The 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie nailed her first Miami Swim Week and, of course, she rocked a cowboy hat while strutting down the runway. Thumann served effortlessly chic coastal cowgirl vibes at the W South Beach on July 7.

Her first getup of the evening was a white three-piece crochet set, including the Sol Bikini Top ($88), Sol Bikini Bottom ($88) and Chica Bolero ($72) from Heart of Sun Swim. Her second outfit was the Jason Eric Mio ($145) blue cut-out one piece from Norma Kamali.

The next day, the 21-year-old shared a fun carousel of both looks with her 1.6 million Instagram followers.
