Gigi Hadid’s Reaffirming Our Faith In This Chic Trouser Trend
It’s fun, it’s flowy and it’s flirty! And even so, the paperbag waist trend continues to be one of the most arguably controversial trends that the Resort runways brought along. Despite strong opinions against it, the trend seems to rise higher on the Fashion Favourite list of celebrity style icons, fashion bloggers, stylists and other industry insiders. In fact, a popular Fashion & Lifestyle mag even kept a case in favour of how the trend can make you look a couple of sizes smaller. Now, we are not completely sold on that last point (from personal experience), but we do agree that there’s something really chic about the dramatically oversized trouser trend, thanks to street style stars like Gigi Hadid who are out there proving why we approved of the trend in the first place.
It might be a controversially risky trend, but of course, the elder Hadid sister had no problem working it like a pro. The supermodel was recently spotted out on the streets of NYC and she added a beautiful new leaf to her statement pant diaries that she’s been working on all week long. This just seems like the perfect end to her ‘dramatic pants’ week.
Here take a look…
What She Wore
Styled by Mimi Cutrell, Gigi was seen working yet another Sally LaPointe ensemble from the label’s Resort 2018 collection. The model donned a Seafoam Cashmere Asymmetrical Sweater and a Seafoam Silky Twill Paperbag Pant from the collection.
Shoes & Accessories
With her extra long trousers, Gigi stepped into a pair of her white Stuart Weitzman pointy-toe ankle boots that she’s often seen teaming up with several of her outfits. Using yet another staple from her wardrobe, the 22-year old threw on a pair of Le Specs x Adam Selman cat-eye reflective sunnies (that she later took off) and carried a Jason Stalvey Top Handle bag in white, same as the silver-grey one she carried a couple of times, earlier this week.
Hair & Makeup
Gigi left her long, blond locks down with a slightly off-centre parting and finished off her look with her signature winged eyes nude lips that were in keeping with the subdued tones of her separates.
There’s nothing that we haven’t already said about the trend or about Gigi working it. But now that you’ve seen it for yourself, you would know that we aren’t exaggerating when we say that paperbag waist pants are THE trend to try right now. You might not match the grace and perfection that Gigi’s exuding, but you sure as hell will look like a true fashionista.
