Shoes usually make or complete an outfit, whether it's a couture gown or an athleisure, street style look. You know who proved the latter? Model Bella Hadid's mostly black street style got a total boost from a simple pair of classic sneakers. Gigi's baby sister added white, shell-top Adidas kicks to her outfit and it made all the difference.
She could have easily worn black trainers, black soccer shoes, or even black Converse. Instead, she went the opposite direction.
Earlier this week, Hadid showed us how to rock a satin bomber jacket, which is a totally '80s fashion move. Now, she's demonstrating the right way to add some oomph to a pretty basic, hanging out ensemble.
Let's not even get into how fierce she looks, with her slicked back hair and flanked by gentleman! I'm so about her white kicks, which broke up her largely black outfit. Yeah, her cropped, dusty rose top adds a dose of color, but it's not as pronounced as her shoes, which enjoyed status as a fashion staple of the '90s and early '00s. Hadid was born in 1996 but she is bringing it back around again.
Hadid is totally killing it lately with her off-duty —as in off the runway, since she is probably always working in some capacity, even when not strutting her stuff in a fashion show—ensembles.
Those are some killer kicks.
Grab a pair of the Superstar sneakers and you'll have a spring in your step. ($80, adidas.com)
A good shoe, even a sneaker, can totally elevate an outfit. White Adidas sure accomplished that for Hadid's leggings and bomber combo. The model also reminded us that sneakers serve many other stylish purposes and go beyond working out and gym time!
