Bella Hadid Makes 2020’s Trickiest New Trend Look Totally Easy

Vogue.com

It’s no question that Bella Hadid is the master of unexpected trends, with an ability to make just about anything look utterly cool. The latest unlikely piece she’s making the case for? The supermodel is now convincing us to give the vest a try. Hadid’s very fashionable takes on the item, however, would never be confused with the classic New York financier’s Midtown uniform.

Just take the humble sweater vest: once common among school girls and preppy fashionistas, the piece has received a total revamp thanks to Hadid. She recently wore a green knit version by former CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runner-up Reese Cooper, giving the look a streetwear spin with the help of a zip-up detail and a few cargo pockets. Hadid somehow makes the classic waistcoat feel contemporary too—it comes as no surprise that the model has already made an appearance in one of this spring’s biggest suiting trends, kicking off 2020 in nothing other than a leather three-piece suit from the Zendaya for Tommy Hilfiger collection.

Still not convinced? Hadid has also given reason to reconsider the puffer vest; and with brands like Ganni and Nanushka, you can get her look at a fraction of the price. Plus, a padded vest might just be the solution to your winter-to-spring transitional style woes. Layer your vest over a sweater or long-sleeved tee, or simply wear one solo. Take a leaf out of Bella’s book—there’s no better time than the present to give one a try.
