Aside from taking after her mom’s gorgeous beach babe looks and modeling talents from her mother (Yolanda Foster), Gigi Hadid’s fame has emerged within the past few years. From being a new Guess model to rocking her bikini bod in Sports Illustrated, dating the hottest bad boy to ever exist, and collaborating with Calvin Klein, she has become the face of the young fashion scene. Not only did she star in the nautical inspired collection by Calvin Klein, Gigi also strutted her stuff for other brilliant designers and seemed to be THE model for New York’s Fall Fashion week.
From prancing the runway to holding hands with Zayn Malik, Gigi is a typical 21 year old girl who loves to get pizza on Friday nights and hang with her super stunning squad (including Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner) and she always looks effortless and chic doing so. Gigi has created a cool-girl vibe that inspires street fashion around the world including mine. Her sporty, casual, yet fashionable model-off-duty style can be achieved on campus with a few staple pieces.
As said in interviews, Gigi feels her sexiest when wearing a plain white t-shirt and jeans. Adding tennis shoes with a versatile jacket can give off a comfy, but cute vibe that allows the “model-off-duty” look to be so easy and chic.
If you want to go for the “Modern Marilyn” without looking too overdone, Gigi does it perfectly by adding pops of red and cat eye sunglasses to a casual outfit.
Gigi seems to be frequently resembling her boyfriend’s edgy style by adding leather into her everyday wardrobe. From leather leggings to bomber jackets, she adds an edge to a simple crop top and leggings that allow her to look fashionable without trying too hard. She is constantly seen wearing sneakers, including Adidas and Yeezy’s, to go along with her sexy blown out hair and bronze make up.
As for a night out in the city (New York or LA), she likes to keep it simple and sophisticated. She is often seen in form fitting dresses and loves lingerie inspired pieces paired with statement accessories. Feminine silk with classic trousers or pencil skirts and a detailed choker is sexy, but still classy enough to still look like a high-fashion model.
Gigi Hadid’s “It Girl” fashion sense and laid back personality is what makes her a style icon for more than just New York Fashion Week 2016, but for many years to come. White t-shirts, jeans, bomber jackets, crop tops, silk, and sneakers are all basic essentials that almost every girl has in her closet and Gigi shows us how to make sporty and comfy look stylish and iconic. Although it may help that she has a rockstar of a boyfriend to share clothes with, Gigi has her own sense of style that makes her the fashion industry’s model of the year.
