Who's Wearing What

15 Times Bella Hadid Brought Back the 90s

by Chloe Wilshere, Content Creator

In the last few years, Bella Hadid has gone from Gigi’s little sister to one of the biggest supermodels to date. And whilst she kills the looks on the runway, we’re also obsessed with her off-duty style.

If there’s one era Bella nails effortlessly every time, it’s got to be the 90s. She may have only been a child when these looks were cool the first time around, but that hasn’t stopped her making them cool again…even if some of them were trends we’d hoped we’d never see again.

​​​​​​​So, in honour of all things 90s, we’ve rounded up 15 times Bella Hadid brought back the 90s.

1. Logo Jumper Dresses

The 90s were all about flaunting big bold logos and 2020 is no different - except Bella makes them look a whole lot more chic than they did back then.

2. Cycling Shorts

From Princess Diana’s go-to in the 90s to Bella Hadid’s go-to now. Over the past few years cycling shorts have become a timeless classic – one that we certainly weren’texpecting. We also love how Hadid’s styled her cycling shorts with a 90s bowling bag and larger-than-life headband.

3. Details

A look doesn’t get much more 90s than this. Skimpy, strappy, barely-there details were huge in the 90s and we only wish we could pull them off like Bella does. Not to mention everything else 90s about this look: the pinstripe blazer, tinted sunglasses and dollar bill also steal the show.

4. Waistcoats

Waistcoats as tops were big in the 90s – Drew Barrymore was a keen advocate of this trend - and Bella is certainly bringing them back in 2020. A slightly more slouchy style to the tailored waistcoat we are typically used to, but it’s safe to say we are (definitely) here for it.

5. Crop Tops and Low Rise Trousers

A 90s trend that only Bella Hadid could bring back and make us all want to wear – if only it was as easy as that. There’s no chance we’ll be getting that much midriff on show any time soon.

6. Cardigans

If there’s one 90s trend we’re glad has come back around this year, it has to be the cardigan. And Bella’s styled it up in the most 90s way possible: chunky boots, a bucket hat and a leather coat – it doesn’t get much more 90s than that.

7. Oversized Blazers

Julia Roberts, is that you? Nope it’s just Bella Hadid in a very similar blazer to Julia’s iconic oversized suit look at the 1990 Golden Globe Awards.

8. Diamante Details

While Bella has many iconic looks, this has to be one for the history books - we love everything about it. Who knew a look could be so simple but so extra at the same time?

9. Corsets and Cargo Pants

If you had to name two trends that were huge in the 90s, cargo pants and corset tops would definitely be up there. And as queen of 90s style, Bella obviously had to have a look pairing them both together.

10. Double Denim

Let’s be honest, we’ve all got a love-hate relationship with that Britney and Justin double denim moment. But if there’s anyone that could make the iconic 90s trend cool again, it’s obviously Bella Hadid.

11. Oversized Suit

We loved an oversized suit in the 90s, but we love them even more now. So, as queen of 90s style it was only right for Bella to wear one at some point.

Looking like you’ve just stepped off the slopes in the 90s is the only way to do winter fashion according to Bella’s outfit.

13. Sportswear

Taking inspiration once again from the 90s princess herself (Princess Di, obviously), we love this simple 90s sportswear look. One that we definitely want to recreate.

14. Corset Details & Pinstripes

Nobody does out-out style quite like Bella does. And this one exudes everything we love about the 90s. Corset details, pinstripes, split trousers and those all-important strands of hair.

15. Head to Toe Leather

In true Matrix style, Bella obviously had to have a head-to-toe leather look somewhere in her wardrobe. And it wouldn’t be a true 90s outfit if It wasn’t finished off with some tinted sunglasses and 90s shoulder bag.
