Ever since Gigi Hadid penetrated every form of social media, runway and magazine cover, a small (yet very special) group of people have dared to ask: is she even that stylish?
But, once I read this article on Man Repeller, the wheels in my head really started to turn. After months at looking at some of her outfits and wondering “why?” I mustered up the courage to admit to myself that I just don’t think her style is that great.
I don’t know, maybe she’s a visionary, predicting trends months (or years) in advance. Maybe one day, we will all be wearing pants that actually look like garbage bags. Maybe one day, we will be wearing sea-foam green dresses. Okay fine, I’ll stop there.
I mean, can someone explain to me the rational behind this fashion equation? Floppy hat + circle sunnies + patterned bomber + textured, bright shirt + briefs?
While–in my opinion–some of her fancier outfits are pitfalls, she hits the nail on athleisure every. Single. Time. Hadid is certainly one of the public figures who have championed this trend. If Gigi wanted to play it safe all the time, she would resort to these types of outfits which she kills by nature. But she doesn’t; she ventures into other styles, and I can totally respect that.
