Gigi Hadid Is a Nautical Goddess — Here’s How to Get Her Look
Recently, her proud mama (and former model herself) Yolanda Hadid posted a pic to her Insta of Gigi in one of the best trends that can be rocked all year long — the nautical look. The photo is from Gigi’s Tommy Hilfiger campaign, and in the shot, Gigi looks super chic in white pants, a striped top and a navy jacket. It’s a look that can be easily copied, even in high summer. Here are a few outfits to get you started.
1. Off-the-Shoulder Perfection: Tuck a deep blue Zara Linen Tassel Top ($50) into a J.Crew Mini Skirt with Stripes ($70) for an easygoing yet put-together outfit, whether you’re hosting a casual backyard cookout or a clambake in New England.
2. A Seaworthy Wedding Look: Nautical doesn’t always mean casual. Zara’s Navy Jumpsuit ($70) is cool, strapless and perfect for a wedding. Throw on a pair of gold heels to add the right amount of sparkle and mimic the gold hardware on a sailor’s uniform. Some modern-looking earrings and a red leather pouch make you look perfectly put together.
3. Red and White + Ready to Go: Off-the-shoulder isn’t just the hottest trend of the summer — it’s also a great way to be subtly sexy. Pair an H&M White Off-the-Shoulder Top ($25) with River Island’s Red Tapered Pants ($70) that nip in at the waist for a great hourglass shape to pull off the trend. A white leather sandal and a blue-on-blue bag round out the outfit for a stylish day look.
4. All-day Versatility: If you’re looking for an outfit for an all-day outing that can take you anywhere, look no further than Topshop’s Short Sleeved Shirt ($55) and Zara’s Striped Shorts With Belt ($30). It’ll take you from brunch to afternoon cocktails to a sunset dinner easily, thanks to this short sleeve, slightly cropped sweater top and some cute, hot-weather appropriate shorts.
5. All That Glitters: Gold buttons are THE standby nautical staple (aside from stripes), and this River Island White Button Skirt ($56) is a perfect example. When you add in the French Connection Dot Top ($98) and some trendy striped slides, it all comes together in an adorable AF outfit.
6. Chambray at Sea: It doesn’t all have to be striped to look seafaring — try adding some other neutrals like gray, light blue or even black to break up the outfit and make it feel more modern. A good starting point is chambray, which you might already have in your closet. If not, try this chic, summer-ready River Island Light Blue Denim Wrap Dress ($80) (it’s great for work too). Adding some nautical accessories will really complete your outfit.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
