This is the newest entry into Bella Hadid’s collection of Things That Are Not Shirts, Exactly, But She’s Trying It Anyway (the link goes to the most recent one). This whole outfit has a ’90s vibe that takes me RIGHT back to when people had choppy bobs and lots of hair clips and eyebrows plucked into skinny arches that people would later spend years trying to grow out. It’s like 10 Things I Hate About You mixed with the Peach Pit After Dark. If she had a little tank top or camisole underneath the cardigan, or instead of it, I might be feeling warmer nostalgia right now. But I’m not sure that thing is even really intended to close. Those buttons and loops feel like they’re perfunctory, present only as the merest suggestion. She is putting a whole lot of faith in a whole lot of nothing. Then again, I guess that’s a fair metaphor for our times.
