While her older sister and fellow celebs were busy tromping around the desert in combat boots, catching musical sets, and protecting their eyes from sandstorms in the most fashionable ways possible, Bella Hadid and The Weeknd had other plans. The power couple quietly set off for a dose of R & R in a mysterious tropical paradise, going "MIA on purpose," and sharing sun-soaked snaps along the way. Despite passing up the chance to serve iconic festival looks this year, Bella Hadid's white bikini still struck up style inspiration for warmer months ahead.
Hadid and longtime boyfriend Abel Tesfaye clearly weren't letting festival FOMO get to them, as proven by their picture-perfect escapades atop jet skis, a yacht, and a lush patio from which the 22-year-old posted a peek at her chic and simple swimwear look. Channeling her model mother's heyday, the '90s-born tastemaker demonstrated the staying power of retro, sporty swimwear in 2019.
Hadid opted for a high-cut style from Australian brand VDM The Label, which she paired with her signature small sunglasses and a colorful head scarf. Achieving peak summer goals with her boyfriend by her side, Hadid made a case for laying low in the name of JOMO (joy of missing out) in the swoon-worthy snaps.
Whether you've got your own island getaway on the agenda or you're planning on chilling poolside for the season ahead, consider borrowing from Hadid's understated summer sensibilities. The model clearly keeps her aesthetic on point even when she's off-the-grid, and this look proves that a basic white bikini remains a timeless staple regardless of your personal style.
The chic, straightforward look complements a bronzed glow gorgeously, and can easily be accented with body jewelry or a colorful hair accessory. Adopt the model-approved swimsuit into your summer style edit, and shop The Zoe Report's roundup of similar options, ahead.
