Supermodel Gigi Hadid has been seen stepping out in some very interesting pants. But despite her interest in bottoms with removable legs and camo sweatpant fabric, her choice in bottoms have confirmed one thing and one thing only: She loves a good, comfy, big, baggy wide-leg pant, like the satin orange Christian Siriano trousers and ice blue Sally LaPointe cinched-waist pieces she wore in New York recently.
And this is a look we can get behind.
Because, now that it’s summertime, who really wants to walk around with skirts that lead to chaffing or too-tight pants that don’t allow for any room to breathe in case you drink one too many glasses of rosé. No, the big and baggy option has everything you could possibly want in a pant — a high waisted fit to really define your waist, coverage in case you get cold at night or in air conditioning, room for your legs to get some air and a flattering silhouette that makes your legs look a mile long (we’re exaggerating there, but you get it).
And, the best part is that you don’t need Hadid’s 5′ 10″ frame to get this supermodel-worthy look. Just get them to “supermodel” length — meaning that the hemline covers the shoe without touching the ground.
