The youngest Hadid sister has recently taken the fashion world by storm. Her personal style compliments her dark beauty as she steps out in gothic inspired ensembles time and time again. Bella Hadid’s glossy, editorial look has landed her countless catwalk appearances for Dior, Givenchy, and Chanel to name but a few. At just 19-years-old, Bella has already been ranked one of the top 50 models of this generation and her catwalk cameos certainly evidence this. No doubt influenced by her couture exposure, Bella’s own style emulates the luxurious look of high-end fashion combining rich fabrics – leather, sheer, and lace feature heavily in her everyday looks.
Hadid’s love of all black outfits is broken up by her ode to the 90’s, her dashings of denim, and her sprinkles of sporty, and yet she has a definite darker fashion style than that of her sister Gigi. One thing is certain: Bella has effortlessly stepped out of the sibling shadow and stolen the fashion spotlight for herself. Keep on scrolling to find out how she magics up these mysterious and enchanting looks.
BELLA HADID’s LEATHER AND SHEER STYLE
A fan of all things leather, Bella is certainly not afraid to show off her famous model figure in this super form fitting fabric. Nor is she afraid to flash some skin in seriously sheer tops.
While leather will instantly add a rocker edge to any outfit, sheer detailing is the perfect pairing for a pinch of whimsical: the two together are a match made in fashion heaven. Bella’s first look is decadently gothic. Hadid channels some serious AW 2016 trends here combining embroidered leather and sheer appliqué with wider leg trousers. All in black of course, the metallic stars on the leather jacket take this look from serious to seriously cool. Finish the look with dark glossy locks and some pointed black boots. Take leather to the next level like Bella does here with her 90’s inspired outfit. Team some flared leather trousers (with a corset fastening for extra AW2016 style points) with a leather biker jacket. Keep the rest of the outfit simple in a plain white t-shirt and matching wide choker for a dark and daring look. Or, follow in Bella’s leather clad footsteps and dare to be bold in scarlet red leather trousers and matching shoes and bag. Style this with an equally bold top like Bella’s black frilled off the shoulder find – FYI frills are back for this coming autumn… Bella is ahead of the game. As far as Hadid goes, this last look is off-duty style for her. In open-sided jeans paired with a completely sheer tank top (missing bra and all), this everyday look probably errs on the risqué side for most of us fashion followers. Solve this by simply wearing an oversized black sweater like the one Bella has draped over her shoulders, and complete the outfit with black pointed boots and a large bowling bag.
BELLA HADID’s THIGH HIGH STYLE
A trend that has stuck around for some time now, Bella knows that thigh high boots are the easiest shoe to style. Simply throw on an oversized jumper-dress and you’re good to go.
Bella plays on the comic print trend in this Moschino sweatshirt and thigh high velvet boots. This look is so simple to recreate. The same goes with these next three outfits. Keep it classy in cashmere and leather by opting for a soft roll-neck jumper dress in white and a pair of matte leather boots. Add some luxe in the accessories and choose a gold box clutch, and sleek back the hair into a neat high-top bun for extra chicness. A more casual look to follow, go incognito like Bella in an oversized camo jumper and team this with black suede thigh highs for a more relaxed vibe. Finish the look with a mini black tote and loosely waved hair. This last look takes on a 90’s grunge twist: opt for a monochrome slogan sweatshirt and pair with patent leather thigh highs for added vamp. Accessorise with a thick black choker and round-rimmed blackout sunglasses; a white chain bag like this Chanel will provide a welcomed element of chic to an otherwise rocker look.
BELLA HADID’s ANKLE BOOT STYLE
As an alternative to sneakers, ankle boots are always there to lend an added edge to a feminine silhouette.
Perfect for transitioning your footwear into autumn and winter, Bella shows us how to work an edgy ankle boot with bare legs. Mix and match a feminine velvet skater dress with some heavy duty ankle boots as seen all over this year’s Balenciaga catwalks. Cinch in the waist with a leather belt and matching bowling bag for the perfect accessory pair. Add an unexpected twist with standout red lips and some oversized yellow tinted sunglasses. A change to Bella’s usually dark outfits, why not try swapping shades of noir for shades of brown. A brown patchwork leather mini skirt gives the outfit an air of vintage, and teamed with a taupe oversized turtle neck sweater this look is perfect for the upcoming autumn. Style the outfit with matching black ankle boots and mini shoulder bag for a cool but casual day time look. Satin, sheer, and fur; this next look combines all three fabrics for a luxury outfit. Try opting for a similar black shirt dress in satin or chiffon, cinch in the waist with a leather belt, and keep yourself warm in a black faux fur jacket – if it has sheer detailing too then you’re onto a real fashion winner. Complete this high-fashion outfit with pointed black ankle boots and you’ll be turning heads just like Bella does. This last look is perhaps the simplest of Bella’s outfits: you can achieve the same look by pairing a grey wrap around body con with some black docs. A grungy base teams perfectly with a pretty pearl choker and a mini kelly-style bag for a hint of timeless sophistication.
BELLA HADID’s ALL DAY EVERY DENIM STYLE
Denim will never go out of style, it simply gets reinvented for each fashion season and Hadid is bringing back 90’s denim to AW/2016.
Let Bella inspire you to dare to double denim. A pair of dark blue straight leg jeans will look super cool teamed with an oversized distressed denim shirt or jacket. The key to this sort of look is to think vintage. Opt for a simple black crop top and choker for a nod to this year’s biggest trend, and pop on some black heeled ankle boots to elevate your fashion choice above the rest. Round rimmed sunglasses complete this vintage look. A denim skirt had previously been shunned to the 00’s but Bella proves here that it is making a comeback. Again let the denim be the centrepiece of the outfit by accessorising with a basic black top and grungy black boots for a gothic edge. A backpack is not only in style but also super practical for everyday use. Get sporty with your denim and swap gym leggings for jeans this season. Do as Hadid does and pair some distressed skinnies with a sports crop top, bomber jacket, and sneakers. Coordinate the colour of your bomber with your Fendi inspired pompom, and a bag in dusty pink will add a soft element of femininity to balance out the sporty vibe. This last look oozes 80’s denim with the indigo-dirty-wash denim bodycon. Opt for a dress in a similar fabric for a real #throwback look and take the punk vibe to the next level with chunky black boots, a studded black choker, and a statement zip. For serious style points though, add in an oversized safety pin to channel the grunge trend as showcased on the Maison Margiela runway.
