The Hot Girl Walk has become something of a cultural phenomenon among young women (including myself). Rising to fame and spreading like wildfire on Tiktok, the Hot Girl Walk combines different elements of wellness into one universally recognized experience – walking. Though the classic ‘HGW’ consists of walking around the neighborhood for anything between 10 minutes to an hour, the ultimate Hot Girl Walk allows you to indulge in the care of the body and the mind.
An incredibly healing experience, the Hot Girl Walk can look a bit different for anyone who chooses to partake in the activity, but for me, it usually consists of an hour-long walk paired with my favorite music. Although Harry Styles “Late Night Talking” does make for great company, sometimes the best way to embrace the Hot Girl Walk is to immerse yourself in the sounds of nature, and to spend time with your own thoughts.
Of almost equal importance to the music you listen to on their Hot Girl Walk is the outfit you wear. Though we can all agree that confidence should come from the inside, it never hurts to feel good in your workout attire. From belt bags to the perfect shoe, College Fashionista rounded up the essentials for the perfect Hot Girl Walk.

A good belt bag is the perfect way to add fun and functionality to any Hot Girl Walk. While we all love Lululemon’s Everywhere Belt Bag (which is currently sold out online), we have provided you with a selection of equally fabulous Hot Girl Walk companions.
