I’m typically not one to obsess over celebrity’s style, but when it comes to Bella Hadid, I quite literally drool over it. Besides the fact that she looks good in just about everything when it comes to her everyday styling, it’s clear she gravitates toward one decade and one decade only—the ’90s. Scroll through recent paparazzi pictures of the It girl and you’ll find a plethora of some of the biggest ’90s fashion trends, resurfaced.
From the vintage Dior and Versace she regularly sports to the more surprising incorporation of kitschy ’90s accessories, Bella Hadid has proven that in 2020, her style is going to be chock-full of the most prominent styles from the iconic decade. And I’m not just talking about a select few outfits I was able to pull together for the sake of this story, from leather blazers to Dr. Martens, we finally have the cold, hard facts to prove that Bella Hadid basically lives in the 7 ’90s fashion trends ahead.
Three words: Big blazer energy. Leather blazers were the cream of the crop back in the ’90s and Bella Hadid is honestly rarely photographed without one. Be it at the airport or during fashion week, this versatile jacket seems to be Bella’s hero piece time and time again.
Bucket hats were prominent in the ’90s, hands-down, but fuzzy bucket hats were the ones the cool girls wore to stand out from the crowd. Should it come as a surprise that Bella loves wearing this nostalgic accessory? Absolutely not.
If the first photo below doesn’t remind you of Ashley and Mary-Kate in It Takes Two, then stop what you’re doing and go watch it, ASAP. The subtle integration of these grungier separates—oversize striped tees, backwards baseball hats, flannels, baggy jeans—make for a fool-proof ’90s look every time.
To be honest, it was hard to find a photo of Bella without a shoulder bag stuffed under her arm. This baguette-style carryall is one of the most notable ’90s trends that rose to the top yet again as a major trend in this decade as well.
As an editor, it feels like all I do is write about cardigans, but the proof is in the pudding, folks. Retailers, celebrities, and designers alike can’t seem to slow their roll on the cardigan front and thanks to Bella Hadid, we now know how to style them in a Rachel Green/Monica Geller-type vibe.
For those of you who really want to hop fully on the ’90s bandwagon, translucent sunglasses better be in your future. Oh, and be sure to get some in smaller rectangle or circle styles. Bella loves wearing hers at all hours of the day and with every kind of look imaginable.
Last but not least, we have white tanks. Spotted on Bella with everything from leather blazers to matching sets, this wardrobe basic has clearly made a name for itself yet again in 2020.
