The temperature hit a sweltering 88 degrees in New York City on Tuesday. For most of us, that meant staying draped over an air conditioner, wearing as few clothes as possible. But for Bella Hadid, a heat wave is all the more reason to dress up. In fact, the supermodel took what could have been a very ho-hum, and very hot outfit — a white button-down and jeans — and made it heat wave-appropriate, and one that is giving us major inspiration.
Bella’s look consisted of a white button-down shirt that’s cut into an extreme crop, and completely open in the back, save for a strategic tie. The piece is by Rumi Neely’s clothing brand Are You Am I, and retails for $269.
Bella’s jeans were by none other than Off-White, the brand designed by Kanye West’s creative director Virgil Abloh, and which Bella has previously worn at the CFDA Awards. Bella wore the baggy, medium-wash jeans cuffed and pulled low on her hips (oh, you thought we were kidding about that low-rider trend coming back?), and they could pretty much be any pair of dad jeans, except for that contrasting white fabric and O-ring zipper on the fly. The jeans retail for $544, and here’s how they looked on the Off-White runway:

Bella’s not the only one who loves weird fly action on her denim — just this past weekend, Kendall Jenner was spotted in L.A. rocking a pair of Monse jeans with a prominent crooked fly. We think a trend is cooking here….

As for Bella, she polished off her look with a pair of Nike high-tops, a structured Dior bag, and a hairpiece pulled into a high ponytail (no sign of that new bob). And there you have it — a coulda-been-basic outfit saved by a few key details. We’re taking notes on how to un-basic a white shirt and jeans — and we’ll keep reporting on any and all instances of the weird-fly trend that’s bubbling up…
