JoJo Siwa has been gay since forever — but in the short year and a half since her coming out to the public, she's redefined the meaning of queer glow-up.

That doesn't mean Siwa's lost her iconic glittery look (how did we not know she was queer?). Instead, she's cut her iconic ponytail and opted for a shorter cut, grown up her colorful albeit kiddish clothes, and shown us all all the while how powerful it is to be out and proud. Lucky for Siwa fans, the singer-dancer-performer-influencer-reality-TV-star is still rocking her enigmatic sparkles and sequins. Here's how to dress just like her — or maybe just a little like her, because it's way too hot for that much polyester.

The List

Holographic chunky face and body glitter

The first step to becoming JoJo Siwa is buying a shit ton of glitter, obviously. This 12-pack might seem like a lot, but you'll likely want to use multiple colors to make patterns like rainbows, hearts, stars, or a full face mask of glitter if you're a die hard.

Oh, you thought we were done with face bling? JoJo Siwa is never done with face bling. In fact, she'll cover her entire face in rhinestones like these ones to achieve a glittery Minions look. I can't claim to understand what's going on in her mind but she is evidently talented at makeup, especially placing all these individual rhinestones. Bow down, rave rats.

You know what's next — more shiny stuff! This hair bedazzling kit has been having a moment on TikTok and Instagram since 2000s fashion became cool again, and if you're young enough not to know how it feels when this thing gets stuck in your hair, it's a great buy. And hey, maybe bedazzling technology has improved a bit in the last 20 years.

Glitter doesn't just belong on your hair and your body — it can jazz up your clothes, too. Jojo Siwa loves a good collared overcoat, like this pearl embroidered jean jacket. It adds a bit of Siwa style to your look without turning your entire outfit into a disco ball (not that there's anything wrong with that).

JoJo Siwa would rock these sequined bell bottoms on or off stage. These sequins are the real deal, too, so you don't have to worry about not instantly making the room light up with these on. Did I mention they come in tons of colors?

Betsey Johnson made rhinestoned shoes cool long before JoJo Siwa, but she puts her own spin on it with high tops and wacky designs. These Betsey Johnson sneakers are a bit lower key than an on-stage look for Siwa, but will still sparkle up your jeans-and-a-t-shirt look.

Rock your pride in the gym or on a run with this rainbow tie dye set. Although JoJo Siwa has been posting plenty of selfies in low-key workout outfits light t-shirts and shorts, she still loves a loud look at the gym now and again. Workout clothes don't have to be boring!

An oversized button down shirt — especially a two-toned one — is a classic lesbian look, and JoJo Siwa is no exception. Grab this button down a few sizes bigger than normal and pair it with some white jeans and you're good as gay.

JoJo Siwa's short hair era has ushered in a new moment for her — the era of sparkly hats. She's leaving the iconic bows at home in favor of sequined, sparkly trucker hats like this one. Turn heads with this ridiculously sparkly baseball hat studded with rhinestones.

JoJo Siwa loves a bomber jacket, again fitting swimmingly into the lesbian fashion scene. This embroidered bomber jacket is a silky satin — which our favorite dancer wears all the time — and has cute flower patches embellishing the shoulders.

Although JoJo Siwa's pride necklace is probably custom made for her, you can wear your pride around your neck, too. This bar necklace is subtle while still showing off how proud you are to be yourself, just like Siwa would want. This one makes a nice gift for a young person in your life who's recently come out.

White jeans look good on everyone, but you have to have some Siwa-like confidence to rock them. She recently paired jeans like these Levi's with chunky white boots and an oversized polo. What a damn queen.

Have you ever tried walking in platform boots? What about rolling across a stage in Heelys? Well, JoJo Siwa has done both. She's started wearing chunky boots like these massive holographic platforms in the last couple of years, and we're here for the femme look.

Keep your eyes sparkling as much as possible with this silver eyeliner — no extra glitter required. This liquid liner goes on smooth and makes it easy to achieve the ever-popular graphic eyeliner look, with a brush applicator and plenty of colors to choose from.

Last but not least, a fully sequined jersey dress — perhaps the most JoJo Siwa-esque thing on this entire list. It's bright, holographic, loose-fitting, and sports-themed — what's more Siwa than that? This jersey dress has a clasp for putting it on and taking it off so you don't lose the sequins in the process.
