Leave it to Bella Hadid to pluck out one of the most forgettable wardrobe basics from the back of her closet and make it look like a trendy item. The model has proven time and time again that she can wear basically anything and look cool doing it, and her latest outfit is truly a testament to that. In between red carpet appearances at Cannes Film Festival, Hadid stepped out in a street style-esque ensemble—and she styled a white button-down shirt—the work staple we all have on hand—as if it were the trendiest item of the year.
I, for one, always overlook my button-down shirts in lieu of other top styles, but Hadid’s look just completely reinvented it in my mind. She opted for an oversized shape, wearing it unbuttoned over a mesh tank top and white jeans, which she finished off with PVC sandals and a metallic shoulder bag—the whole look reads quite ’90s, one of Hadid’s style signatures. By wearing more nighttime-ready pieces like a going-out top and fun heeled sandals, she transformed her plain button-down from “boring” 9-to-5 staple to a cool alternative to a jacket.
