This lookbook is my take on Bella Hadid's recent model-off-duty looks. Her eye-turning fashion week outfits have been described as almost grandma-like, but she really makes it work. She's been wearing thin glasses instead of contacts and mid-calf Vivienne Westwood skirts. And honestly, she looks so good and it really fits her vibe. She doesn’t have a stylist so it's obvious she has a major eye for fashion.
The skirt I used for the lookbook is affordable and totally giving Bella Hadid. It's that awkward yet effortless mid-calf length and has that cargo vibe that is all the rage right now. And it's such a simple color that you can style it in so many ways. And its length allows a lot of shoe freedom. You can wear a knee-length boot, a dad sneaker, a kitten heel, and the list goes on.
The shirt is a subversive basic from With Jean’s latest collection and looks great with this skirt. It's simple, but it's also not. I recently saw Sav Hudson wearing a shirt like this with a trendy grandma skirt, so she definitely inspired the top half of the outfit. And the silver accents are cool-toned which is why you need a navy blue skirt like this one.
And I am loving the vibe these shoes are giving. It's effortlessly cool and perfect for running errands around NYC. Comfy and cute. It's a win-win. And pairing it with black ankle socks kinda says “I don’t care” but really you know you look super stylish and everyone will look at you and then wear black ankle socks with their sneakers the next day. But little do those non-it-girls know, it only works in this fit because each piece is carefully curated to create this vibe.
And of course, we had to use the Bella Hadid sunglasses, duh. And this bag is warm-toned which adds some contrast and a funky but also not funky aspect. Again, carefully curated.
