Inspired By… Gigi Hadid
20-year-old American model Gigi Hadid has become a huge fashion icon over the past few years. She has made appearances in many popular magazines, including Elle, Vogue and Sports Illustrated. Her Instagram account has 4.4M followers and she’s even shown up on a few TV shows, like The Real Housewives of Beverley Hills.
No matter where Gigi goes or what she’s doing, it’s guaranteed that she will always look her best. She’s an inspiration to girls all over the world, and has a pretty bright future ahead of her. Here is a list of six of her best fashion moments, when she’s not on a photoshoot set, which can serve as outfit inspirations for your summer wardrobe:
1. City Livin’
Here is a simple outfit that is easy to use as a model for your summer wardrobe. With this great, short-sleeve crop top and ripped skinny jeans, there’s nothing stopping you from taking the day off to go shopping in the city like Gigi. This young look is very popular among girls Gigi’s age and – really – who wouldn’t love to have sunglasses like those this summer?
2. Out and About
Although I absolutely love this jacket from Tularosa, I wouldn’t exactly recommend it for the summer months. The rest of Gigi’s outfit, though, is totally on point with everything you need to look good in the summer! Her graphic tee and washed out black shorts are great inspirations to keep your style going all season long. Match them with a pair of simple flip flops like Gigi and you’ll be ready to take on the town.
3. Bohemian Chic
Gigi was seen wearing this outfit at Coachella 2015. The bohemian style has become really popular among young women within the past few years, and Gigi makes it look so easy to pull off. Though her dress is simply amazing, what really makes this outfit standout is the way she uses accessories. If you’re looking to get a relaxed look this summer, try modeling your wardrobe after this look – you won’t be disappointed.
4. Coachella Vibes
Here is another outfit that Gigi was seen sporting at this year’s Coachella Music Festival. I think this is a great summer outfit because of its beachy vibe and all-around cool style. Puffy shorts, like these ones, have also been rising in popularity this season. When you pair them with a skin-tight crop top, you can’t go wrong. Gigi really makes this outfit pop by making a point to add a glitzy statement necklace. If you really love this style, you can do it too!
5. Stripes for Days
There’s nothing simpler than wearing a dress in the summer. Sometimes, it can get a little too hot outside to even think up an amazing ensemble. Regardless, Gigi knows exactly how to rock a sundress like this. Everyone knows that sunglasses are a must, but can you spy the cute bag on her shoulder? It’s a bold orange color! Adding pops of color into your outfits through accessories can really do wonders when you don’t feel like putting too much effort into an outfit. Gigi shows you exactly how that works in your favor.
6. Leather Overalls
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Is it even possible to wear something like this in the summer? Well, minus the heavy jacket and booties, the answer is yes! Gigi was seen wearing this outfit while walking around Paris earlier this year. If you’re ready to wear something daring this summer, take a few notes from Gigi and try something similar to this. Just replace the loafers with flip flops, remove the jacket all-together and strap on a cross-body bag for an easy outfit that will look great for a day in the sun.
Even at such a young age, Gigi Hadid is making her mark on the world as a fashion icon. Get inspired and try modeling some of your outfits after her this summer. You won’t regret it!
