How to Watch

Watch Summer House on Bravo Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.

The cast of Summer House likes to throw down, but their latest Season 8, Episode 6 "Hamptons 500" bash raised the bar (or more accurately, black and white checkered flag) for creative theme parties.

Much like Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula's adorable dogs, the cast got the zoomies at a race car party. And they went all out. Carl Radke and visiting Southern Charm-er Craig Conover rocked jumpsuits with total pit crew vibes, while Paige DeSorbo, Lindsay Hubbard, and Gabby Prescod went for chic track-side looks. Just add an enormous inflatable obstacle track that became a literal crash course for West Wilson, and the cast was off to the races.

While the cast always impresses us with their costume creativity, it was clear that they had taken it to another level this episode. "You look electric," Jesse Solomon said to Kyle as he strutted into the kitchen in his impressive jumpsuit, aviator sunglasses, and faux-hawk mullet.

Between the checkerboard patterns, black and red color schemes, and go-kart-inspired races, one outfit in particular raced to pole position: The used car lot dancer inflatable costume Ciara Miller donned for the first half of the party. Bold, bright, and immediately memorable, the hilarious choice quickly proved too warm for July's sunny rays, leading her to swap it out for a lace-up leotard before too long.

"Of course I could go sexy," Ciara said of her costume in an interview during the episode. "Boring!"

If you're looking to turn your backyard into the perfect pitstop for racing fans, you're in the right place. We've put together a list of Hamptons 500 essentials inspired by the cast of Summer House. And although it's notably missing Ciara's wild costume, there are racing-themed easygoing tees, versatile jumpsuits, and countless black and white checkerboard styles. If those sound like real items you could use or wear every day, you're absolutely right. Because unlike some of the other epic Summer House parties — as fun as they were — the requisite looks are on-trend and translate to real life pretty well. Those who remember the iconic Boston Tea Party theme, the classic toga party, or backyard roller rink extravaganza know that isn't always the case. Unless, of course, you're Kyle. If it's a day that ends in -y, he's gonna find a reason to put on a wig or revamp his mullet.
