Hailey Baldwin Wore A Jacket As A Shirt & Looked So Chic
Welcome to summer, a confusing time of year for some in that the weather reaches scorching temperatures midday only to rapidly drop once the sun goes down. The solution? Doubling outerwear as a ventilating top as well and insulator when you get a bit chilly. A perfect example of this sartorial practice is Hailey Baldwin’s cropped tan jacket. The model recently wore it in lieu of an actual shirt recently, and still managed to look super put-together.
Baldwin was spotted on July 3 at popular celebrity hangout Il Pastaio in Los Angeles' Beverly Hills neighborhood for a casual lunch date with her husband, Justin Bieber. She donned a cropped utility jacket from Moscow-based label Kalmanovich for the occasion. It was styled over a simple white bralette and a pair of classic high-rise denim cut-off shorts from editor-adored denim brand RE/DONE. The Adidas ambassador accessorized with a pair of the brand's white Sc Supercourt sneakers, a crocodile-print belt, enlarged gold hoop earrings, and coordinating thin, square-rimmed Ray-Ban sunglasses.
The model's day-off hair and makeup was just as easy to copy as her outfit. Her light blonde bob was pulled back into a low bun to keep it off her face as she dodged photographers. A naturally glowing makeup application — complete with bronzed skin and a subtle pink gloss — gave her a perfectly laid-back vibe.
Turns out, Baldwin's jacket choice hits on two summer trends at once: neutrals, and lightweight workwear-inspired pieces. It's no secret that all-neutral outfits are super popular right now — they were seen on the Spring/Summer 2019 runways at brands like Burberry and Max Mara. Utilitarian-style jackets have been everywhere as well, with more inexpensive brands like A.L.C. and And Other Stories creating their own iterations.
To master her look, try wearing a slightly oversized jacket with high-rise trousers or skirts for a casual way to show some skin without overheating this season. If you do go for a pair of jeans, search for options in a lighter wash to make the whole outfit summer-appropriate. Plus, styling your pieces with a pair of sneakers instead of heels will give your entire ensemble a more chilled-out appearance that can work for a casual day of errands or one spent with friends and family.
