Even though spring is technically here, every New Yorker knows it's not all sunshine and rainbows from this point forward. Despite the joy of bidding winter goodbye, there's still a good chunk of weeks (or months) that require thoughtful — and sometimes frustrating — transitional dressing. If you're looking for creative outfit formulas and staple items while figuring out how to dress for colder spring weather, allow Bella Hadid to offer a few expert tips.
The model was spotted out in New York City on Tues., demonstrating how to stay warm and stylish amidst mild temperatures. Dressed in a snug black turtleneck and relaxed jeans, the 22-year-old topped off the cozy look with a leopard-print puffer jacket. More sporty and lightweight than its faux-fur counterparts, the statement coat is a smart choice for chilly spring days ahead.
Hadid has been a real proponent for the leopard-print trend, donning everything from cocktail dresses to pant suits in the wild pattern. Finishing off the casual but trend-forward look with hoop earrings, lace-up booties, and a crossbody bag, the model continued her reign as street style queen as she strutted through the crosswalk, even flashing a smile for the camera.
If you're digging how the youngest Hadid sister is springing forward with the leopard-print trend, it might be worth considering snagging a leopard puffer of your own. With summer just around the corner, you may be apprehensive about investing in outerwear, which is why The Zoe Report rounded up similar styles that happen to be majorly discounted. Get ready to nail the model-approved trend while saving a few coins, and conquer days of transitional dressing head-on.
