Continuing to feed both their penchant for matching and their love of short-shorts, Bella and Gigi Hadid were both spotted in NYC on Monday, June 25, rocking denim cutoffs that prove the ‘90s wardrobe staple is officially back. Further confirmation that it’s all about the jean shorts right now: earlier this month, the sisters’ fellow model-of-the-moment Hailey Baldwin dressed her cutoffs up and down on two different occasions with rumored beau Justin Bieber, and now it looks like the Hadid sisters are giving the leg-baring trend a try as well.
While Gigi and Bella are obviously sartorially in sync when it comes to the warm-weather essential (they were, after all, both wearing a pair by Re/Done), the ladies fashioned their shorts totally differently. An ideal way to beat the summer heat, Gigi’s look was cutely casual — the summer take on classic model-off-duty style. She topped off her pocket-baring cutoffs with a simple white tee that she turned into a muscle tank by pushing up the sleeves.
Further learning into the ‘90s vibe, she accessorized with chunky Buffalo London x Opening Ceremony pink platform sneakers, mirrored Le Specs x Adam Selman shades and a Versace cross-body bag. A lived-in top knot completed the look.
Bella, meanwhile, seemed to be channeling a slightly more “done” look thanks to some key add-ons. Rocking a Fendi logo polo shirt, the model put a hint of her toned tummy on display, but her outfit was really all about the accessories. She cinched her Re/Done shorts with a chain-link belt for instant polish, while her Naked Wolfe combat boots were reminiscent of the Baldwin’s footwear of choice last week. A bouncy, center-parted lob, super slender shades and a black Alyx backpack elevated the ensemble’s girl-on-the-go feel.
So whether you are after Gigi’s laid-back weekend vibe or Bella’s cool-girl flair, there is no limit to the denim short’s styling potential. And considering three social media/catwalk queens have now adopted the look, it’s safe to say they are going to be everywhere this summer.
