Bella Hadid Takes Her Retro Style to London


Bella Hadid Takes Her Retro Style to London

In a navy tracksuit.

Bella Hadid is bringing back the tracksuit.

The supermodel was spotted in London wearing a navy set that managed to be reminiscent of both the ’70s and the early ’00s. She paired low-rise joggers with a micro zip-up jacket—a discontinued piece from rapper Nas’s clothing line featuring “London” and “England” written across the chest in bold white-and-red lettering. Black flattop rectangular shades and black leather gloves helped maintain the look’s edge, but the star accessory was definitely Burberry’s Quilted Lola cross-body bag, which features the brand’s signature check print pattern and gold logo at the center.

The model was photographed leaving her hotel while headed to a studio in the city. She also featured the look on her Instagram with a carousel of selfies in which she poses from multiple angles: some with her hair down in natural waves and some with it up in a high ponytail. She captioned the post, “+44LND.”

Hadid has been on a roll lately when it comes to retro styles. Last week, she was spotted in New York City wearing a groovy Penny Lane coat featuring a sheepskin patterned style also reminiscent of the ’70s, while pairing the look with purple-tinted rimless rectangular sunglasses and thick amber-colored rings. And she went for a night out in West Hollywood earlier the same month wearing a ’90s-inspired chocolate-brown dress with a plunging halter neckline, paired with a leopard-print shoulder bag and knee-high white go-go boots. (She was accompanied by Euphoria star Alexa Demie, whose role as Maddy Perez on the HBO show spurred its own Y2K-inspired fashion trends, thanks to her Bratz Doll aesthetic, created by costume designer Heidi Bivens.)

Back in 2018, Hadid opened up about her passion for vintage shopping. “Even when I was a kid in high school, style was always my thing. I never wore flip-flops, I always had my cute outfits, I went vintage shopping,” she said in the interview. “It’s crazy because I was never one to put outfits together for people to see me, but now of course I walk outside and photographers are outside my apartment. So now it’s a fun thing. I look at it, instead of being like f— this, I can show what I’m really made of.”
