As models, editors, and street-style stars hit the sidewalks of Paris for the grand finale of Fashion Month, the endless outfit inspiration cues plenty of shopping. If you're in need of a wardrobe refresh for the season ahead, accessories are a wonderful place to start. And if your closet is already lined with the basics, Bella Hadid's leopard-print shoulder bag is an excellent way to liven up your lineup.

The 22-year-old model brought her signature '90s style to Paris, and per usual, street-style magic has ensued. While on her way to the Off-White showroom on Weds., Hadid served '90s perfection in an all-black getup that looked like a masterful blend of Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, TLC, and The Matrix.

Dressed in a sleeveless turtleneck, baggy cargo pants, and military boots, the model further cemented her nostalgic sensibilities, topping off the utilitarian look with a miniature shoulder bag. The bag that reigned supreme in the '90s and early 2000s is clearly making a comeback, because Hadid has carried the same style in crocodile and patent leather variations. And while your dusty Limited Too purse has certainly seen better days, it's worth considering adopting an elevated version of the favorite from the early aughts.


Runways and Instagram feeds alike have proven minimalism is currently out on holiday, with mixed prints, neon hues, and statement silhouettes reigning supreme. From full printed looks to accent pieces, it's clear that jungle-inspired patterns aren't slowing down. But you can totally give animal print a whirl without diving head first into a full-on leopard outfit.

Hadid flawlessly offset her monochrome look with a flash of animal print (a styling hack she's relied on before), proving it takes just one star accessory to set off an otherwise simple look, and a bag is the perfect way to test a trend in small doses.

With plenty of leopard-print styles to choose from, you might have a hard time deciding on just one, which isn't a terrible problem to have. Ahead, shop The Zoe Report's round up of Hadid-inspired leopard-print bags that are perfect for spring.
