Gigi Hadid Celebrated Her 20th Birthday In Spandex Leggings

This weekend, model-of-the-moment Gigi Hadid turned 20. She blew out her candles with — who else? — Kendall Jenner, while wearing — what else? — skintight spandex. Okay, maybe the latter isn't quite as obvious as the former, but it should be. After all, you're never going to be as young as you are on your birthday, so you might as well wear exactly what you want to. 

Hadid was photographed hitting the town in a slouchy T-shirt half tucked into shiny leggings. Still wise beyond her years, she successfully turned two pieces that wouldn’t be unwelcome at a spin class into an outfit worthy of a fancy celebration. Of course, these weren’t just any old yoga pants — the paneling around the knee and the white detailing at the cuff elevated them into evening wear.

Matching them with colorblock Louboutin heels sure didn’t hurt, either. And, neither did topping it all off with a sleek, structured overcoat. Twenty certainly looks good on Gigi, but you can totally snag her outfit whatever your next birthday may be.

Gigi Hadid celebrated her big 2-0 at Red Stixs in Manhattan, wearing spandex pants, a V-neck tee, and very grown-up Louboutin pumps. Now this is what we call a birthday suit.

Much fancier than your average leggings, but every bit as comfortable.

This boxy, slightly cropped tee was pretty much made for a half-tuck.

If you’re feeling shy about wearing leggings as pants, don a long, slouchy blazer to cover your bases. And, by bases, we obviously mean butt.

One surefire way to dress up super-casual separates? Red carpet-worthy stilettos.
