When I'm in a fashion rut or have no idea what to wear, my first step is to look at pictures of Gigi Hadid's street style. Ever since she stepped on the scene, I've been obsessed. She has a relaxed but put-together look complete with plenty of black and some athleisure touches.
I was in desperate need of some style inspo the other day when I found this photo of Gigi pinned to one of my style boards on Pinterest:
From there, putting together the perfect outfit for a day full of classes was a piece of cake. Here is my recreation of this outfit (minus the sweater and bag.)
I started off with this basic white tee from Gap (I know I mention it in every post, but I used to work there so I have HELLA Gap clothes) and instead of leggings with zippers, I added my own edge with these scuba leggings from Express.
In terms of accessories, I went with some add-ons to take this outfit from basic to bad bitch. Since this outfit was inspired by Gigi, I absolutely had to wear my adidas sneakers that I begged my grandma to buy for me (found them at DSW, thanks gram.) I also wore my favorite (and only) watch from Michael Kors.
I decided to try something new this day as well and test drive this new bandana trend. I loved it, and what's great is that it's such an easy and inexpensive way to accessorize your outfits. I got my bandana from Wal-Mart for only $1. It's funny because places like Gap and Express are trying to sell these for over $10. Crazy, right?
And this isn't exactly Gigi inspired, but I thought I'd talk about my makeup real quick. I'm relatively simple when it comes to everyday makeup looks. Here I'm wearing the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation in shade 112 and I set that with my Laura Mercier Translucent Powder. For contour I used my Kat Von D Shade + Light palette (my absolute favorite) and topped that off with a blush from the Morphe 9B palette and got my highlight on fleek with Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop. I filled in my brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade in Taupe and added a few coats of Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara to my lashes (new fav mascara.) For lips, I lined and filled them in with Colourpop Bitchette and topped it with the matching Lippie Stix. Bitchette is fitting, no?
HIGHLIGHT (and oily skin) ON FLEEK.
Hopefully you all have a wonderful weekend!
