7 Style Rules Everyone Can Learn From Gigi Hadid's Instagram
Gigi Hadid is one of those people who made Instagram the enormous success it is today—and vice versa. Her career kick-started due to her social media following—a number that now stands at 36.4m on Instagram alone. True, she is blessed with incredible looks/body/connections, but she knows how to make the social media platform work for her without over-posting or over-sharing. Much like peer and BFF Kendall Jenner, Gigi's feed gives fans and fashion followers a genuine insight into her day to day life—whether she's hanging out with her boyfriend, former One Direction member Zayn Malik, or showing us how fabulous, exhausting and crazy her life is on the road during fashion week, there's never a dull moment.
Her crew is a good one (obviously her sister Bella features heavily, but familiar faces include designers, fellow Victoria's Secret models and industry stalwarts like Mario Testino), but we also regularly check in on Gigi's Insta to see what incredible project she's working on next, as collaborations, campaigns and events come in thick and fast. But all that aside, we mere mortals have learnt some valuable fashion lessons from her feed too. Whether that's knowing when to wear a pair of tinted sunnies (never not suitable) or understanding the power of a proper pose, there are some vital style tips that we think you need to know. Keep scrolling for seven fashion rules everyone can learn from Gigi Hadid's Instagram.
#1: paying homage to Clueless is always a good idea
#2: Never forget your tinted sunglasses
#3: There's no such thing as "too much jewellery"
Style Notes: So what if you think you've overdone it on the accessories? Despite what Coco Chanel says ("before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take at least one thing off"), we think this look is pretty chic.
#4: Makeup selfies should be fun
Style Notes: You might be someone who fastidiously dresses in blacks, greys and whites, but sometimes it's fun to experiment with colour. Whether in the form of makeup or something like a red hat, try breaking out of your comfort zone from time to time.
#5: Plaid and a roll-neck can look chic
Style Notes: The simplest of outfits, such as a plaid shirt and a black roll-neck, can still be chic. Gigi moves this from lumberjack to luxe with her glossy mass of wavy hair.
#6: Your pose is everything
Style Notes: If there's one thing Gigi knows how to do well, it's pose. Well, it is her job. Take a few tips from her on how to position yourself when capturing your next #OOTD.
#7: If in doubt, do messy hair and a neck tie
