If there's one item you should invest in this autumn, it, for sure, needs to be something plaid. During New York Fashion Week, street style was dominated by oversized plaid blazers, a trend we didn’t mind participating in considering how many options Zara currently has on sale. But for Paris Fashion Week it seems like the print has taken on a new form: cropped trousers.
Gigi Hadid was photographed in Paris Friday morning wearing a pair of "Stovepipe Pants" from H&M; on the retailer's site, they're described as being made from" woven stretch fabric" and have a "hook-and-eye fastener, side pockets, and tapered legs." The bottoms retail for just $29.99 (£22.55) and come in four colours: black, bright blue, dark blue with a glittery pinstripe-style streak, and grey houndstooth, which are the ones Hadid is wearing.
Besides the price point, the best part about these trousers is how versatile they are: You can pair them with a matching blazer for a suited-up look, just dress them up with a blouse and platform sandals, or, you can follow Hadid's lead and dress them down with a hoodie and slip-on mules that look a lot like house slippers. Either way, if you're into them, we suggested buying the trousers quickly. Now that the secret to her model off-duty look is revealed, there’s no telling how long they'll last.
Since arriving in Paris Wednesday, Hadid has kept her style more low-key than usual: On Thursday, she hit the town in an emerald green crew-neck sweatshirt and matching oversized front-zip sweatpants by Japanese designer Christian Dada. Though not yet available for purchase, we have a feeling this matching set won't be as affordable as the grey trousers, so if you're looking to get your very own slice of Hadid's style, consider these checked trousers it.
