To say that Bella Hadid’s been having a great year is a bit of an understatement. Gigi’s younger sis, who also works as a model, has recently been named ambassador and face of Dior Makeup, has been walking in nearly every major fashion week and starring in countless campaigns. She’s also been a rising style star and It Girl in her own right, and we can all learn a few style lessons from her. A master of athleisure and edgy looks, she often ditches heels for sneakers and rugged boots, a welcome, more comfortable change many of us could embrace. Here are three on trend and comfy sneaker looks Bella has worn recently that we can all take some style cues from.
Skirting The Issue
Who says you can’t wear a leather skirt during the day? Bella proves that if paired with the right top and shoes, it can look fresh and fun for daytime. A loose casual tee, black sneakers, sunglasses and small shoulder bag keep it from looking too much like a club outfit, and instead an edgy, yet put together for hanging out with friends in the city or heading to one of many summer music festivals. To rock the look with even more ease, check out this Theory dress from Designer Swap to get the same look without fear of having your shirt come untucked.
The bomber jacket has been a staple this season thus far, showing up on nearly anyone who’s anyone, and Bella is no exception. Paired with a lighter wash of denim, plain tee and her fave shoe, sneakers, this look is perfect for cooler nights and relaxed days. If you wanna score her exact jacket, it can be found on Maje’s site in 3 different colours.
Slip Into Something New
The 90’s are back in full swing this summer, as we’ve seen on runways and celebs all season long. The slip dress has been one of the most popular throwback looks and they’ve been styled in many ways. Bella takes a bit of a different approach and chose to rough up the look of such an otherwise delicate dress. By wearing it with her signature sneakers, this time some slip ons, and a thick black choker (another hot accessory of the season) the dress becomes more grunge than feminine and elegant. Missguided has some similar dresses if you’re looking to steal her style, and Nordstrom has tons of slip ons to pair with it.
