Gigi Hadid Is Bringing Back This Preppy '90s Trend

by Augusta Statz

The ‘90s are in full swing again in terms of fashion, and when Gigi Hadid stepped out wearing a sweater around her neck, it left me asking myself one question. I'm all, “Wait a second — is wearing a sweater tied around your neck cool again?” And by the looks of it I’d say yes, yes indeed it is.

When top models such as Hadid or Kendall Jenner wear a trend, I can be certain that it’s "in." And let me tell you, Hadid is making this whole sweater tying thing look like the thing to do. I have only recently come around to tying my outerwear around my waist again (because that was so like third grade, you know?), but now I’d be willing to wear a light jacket around my neck, too. All because Hadid told me to.

Now before you go judging me for basing my fashion decisions solely on what this one model wears, let me explain her look to you. She’s wearing high-neck crop top with low-waisted black bottoms and white sneakers. So, see why I wouldn’t mind dressing this way? If that doesn’t sound modern and cool to you, you’re not embracing the ‘90s trend as much as the rest of us are, that’s for sure! Take a look at Hadid’s latest look, why don’t you?

See. Now, wouldn't you be willing to give this a try, too?
