Style Breakdown: Gigi Hadid

Perhaps it's her impeccable figure, her luscious locks or her envious squad of equally beautiful best friends, either way Hadid is a supermodel in the making and she's 99% there. As with every teenage girl, Hadid is definitely up there on my list of modern muses. Hadid's style combines sportswear and sophisticated separates that creates an effortlessly chic look, perfect for go-sees, post-workout coffee-stops or hopping on a flight. Pair this with her Californian beauty of blonde, beachy hair and lightly sunkissed skin and you have every girl attempting to imitate her likeness. And yes, I'm on of those girls. Today I've dived deeper into the heart of Hadid's style, breaking down her essentials for us all to steal emulate. Here's what I found.

THE CROP TOP - C'mon, with her blessed figure, I don't blame her for wanting to show off her enviable abs. For an ultra Gigi look, team with high-waisted boyfriend/ mum jeans for a 90's approach but throw on a sophisticated coat for effortless chic.

THE VINTAGE TEE - Hadid loves adding a touch of 90's to her outfits, whether it be through her denim choices, her array of leather jackets or indie vintage tees. Pair your vintage tee with aviators and trainers to achieve that effortless model-off-duty vibe that we all crave.

RIPPED SKINNY JEANS - Hadid lives and dies in ripped jeans. Whilst researching her style, although she wears ripped jeans in all shapes and sizes, I noticed that skinny ones are her favourite shape. Personally, I believe you can't get much better than Topshop denim, although I hear Zara is also up there on the denim ranks.

THE DEEP-V - Although I can relate more to Hadid's everyday wear, I still adore what she wears of an evening. She always looks very sleek, classy, sexy and ultra sophisticated. She plays with textures, colours and proportions. Her go-to neckline is a deep-V for nightwear- although this is very revealing, she plays it down by covering her legs and arms and opting for classic pieces. I adore this look above, I love the silk blouse with the cropped black trouser, and especially partnered with the statement choker and snakeskin bag. It's so creative yet classic - a great sartorial combination.

THE SOPHISTICATED COAT - Any girl or woman running around NYC owns a sophisticated coat. It polishes an outfit and adds instant chic to anything deemed casual or comfy. Hadid favours both structured shapes like the one above or looser, cooler versions like bomber jackets and floor-length trench coats.

ATHLEISURE - Okay, I hear you - WHAT IS THIS? Consider it as sportswear for the everyday - forget changing into something else after your very instagram-worthy yoga workout...welcome to the 21st century, it's all about wearing your workout clothes all day, everyday. Make sure you opt for super sleek and sophisticated gymwear and team your look with oversized sunnies and a chic handbag.

THE SNEAKER/ TRAINER - To add instant cool, Hadid loves wearing trainers with her outfits (maybe for the fact that she appreciates the comfort after wearing 6-inch heels for events or catwalks). I for one am loving trainers at the moment and have been non-stop wearing them. I love the New Balance range, however, Nike or Vans do some amazing versions too.
