Eagle-eyed beauty fans were quick to take note of Bella Hadid's new blonde hair on Tues. — a fresh dye job that made its official debut on the her Instagram Stories. The photos, in which the model looked the spitting image of her older sister, Gigi Hadid, didn't offer up the best glimpse at her summer-perfect look, but a new street-style sighting did. That's right, Hadid's sunny blonde hair and her beige cardigan just made a serious splash in New York City. Beauty and fashion gurus will want to take note of the tastemaker's exquisite off-duty outfit right away.

If you missed the latest Hadid spotting, don't fret. The model did appear quite unrecognizable on Weds., when she stepped out for a busy day in the Big Apple with golden-colored hair, which also appeared to be a couple of inches shorter than her usual. Summer is the ideal time to make a drastic color switch-up, but if you're not quite ready to call up your salon and get major dye job done, you can still emulate Hadid's perfect warm-weather look by scooping up a handful of classic closet staples that scream summertime.

The 22-year-old's latest off-duty outfit consisted of just three pieces — each is quite simple on its own, but when worn together, they make for a standout getup that will never fail you. Hadid opted for a pair of crisp white, straight-leg jeans that sat mid-waist, a white button-front top, and the MVP of the entire ensemble, a cozy-cute knit cardigan. It seems like NYC's scorching temps didn't stop the model from wearing the fall and wintertime staple — and she's going to inspire you to sport it, too.

Elevating the look was quite easy, too. As per usual, Hadid went with a slew of bold accessories that didn't go unnoticed. A black, Western-inspired belt (a trend that's been on the uptick as of late), tinted Oliver Peoples sunglasses, black leather Nike sneakers, and a snakeskin-print shoulder bag added pops of contrasting color and texture.

Cardigans are nothing new in the celebrity street-style world, but Hadid's most recent ensemble is a great reminder of the styling (and staying) power of the classic top layer.
