Model Style: 6 Style Tricks From Gigi Hadid
Gigi Hadid career is on fire! She’s been seen on the runways of New York, London, Milan, Paris as well as inside numerous magazines. Vogue Magazine recently dubbed her an “It Girl” and I completely agree! She has a keen sense of style and always looks runway ready on the streets. If you love Gigi’s style, check out these 6 style tricks!
1. White Out
Gigi’s evening style is all about simplicity. If you’re in a hurry, a great evening ootn is a simple long sleeve ribbed crop top and bodycon skirt in a light color. Wearing a top and skirt in the same light color is the key to this look. For Gigi, she picked a light grey/almost white top and bottom set. Although not pictured, she chose black strappy sandals to finish off the look. Light grey is such a great spring/summer color and it looks so chic. If you want the exact same outfit as Gigi, she’s wearing House of CB’s Arabella set ($167) but you can easily recreate it by choosing similar pieces.
2) Oversized Turtleneck Dress
This is a great look if you don’t want to show too much skin or wear something too fitted. Gigi chose a grey loose turtleneck and simply paired it with thigh high boots–doesn’t get simpler than that. The key to this look is choosing a turtleneck that is loose like hers. The one she’s wearing is from Free People and it’s actually a top, not a dress. She chose it in a larger size and made it into a dress. I’ve also seen her wear it as a long sweater with pants. Very versatile! This is a great look for day or night and will be really comfy no matter what. The one she’s wearing from Free People is actually on sale for $89.95, but there’s also a great one from H&M currently on sale for only $10!
3. Sportswear X Ripped Jeans
If you want to add a sports inspired twist to your ootd, take a look at Gigi’s outfit! She created a base of a black tee and ripped jeans, adding on top a mesh zip up jacket to give the whole outfit a sporty vibe. Add in simple black pumps and you can take this look into the evening. This is a perfect look if you don’t want to wear a dress or a skirt in the evening but still want to wear something sexy. The black jacket’s mesh detailing has a sheer factor to it that gives the look an overall edgy vibe.
4.Back to the Basics
A simple buttoned up white collared shirt is sometimes overlooked outside the office or school, but Gigi styled it perfectly! This type of shirt is timeless and a must have for any wardrobe. It can be styled many ways. The material is only semi-sheer, showing just a hint of her bra–sexy and sweet at the same time. She paired it with black jeans and strappy heels. The edgy heels are a great finishing touch to the outfit as well as a slicked back ponytail. I found a similar one at H&M for $24.95.
5. Black X White
Gigi is taking the black and white look to the next level. She wore a white jumpsuit, (which if you don’t have or don’t want to purchase, simply wear white high waisted trousers with a white long sleeved top tucked in) and pair it with a black trench coat, duster coat, or a long blazer. The key to this look is by wearing the jacket as Gigi does–have the jacket around your shoulders and don’t put your arms in the sleeves–this is a quick way to add a chic factor to the look. Add in a middle parted ponytail and a couple of gold rings to finish the outfit.
6. Edgy All Black
While Gigi tends to keep most of her outfits on the lighter side, she definitely infuses edge to her pieces. In this case, she took edgy all the way, wearing a black top and jeans, with a spike adored leather jacket and studded black belt. The base of the outfit is simple-black top and jeans–it’s the jacket, belt and sunnies that made this such a edgy look. The cropped leather jacket is a great addition to your wardrobe as it can toughen up any outfit it’s paired with.
