We're only halfway through fashion month, yet one trend is already shaping up to be the favorite of the entire calendar: capri pants. The not-too-short, not-too-long bottoms made a surprising comeback during New York Fashion Week, with appearances at Tory Burch, Phillip Lim, Mirror Palais, and Sandy Liang. Already, we've gotten a glimpse at the style's first celebrity endorsement. 

This week, Bella Hadid was spotted on a helipad in Manhattan after arriving in the city alongside her brother Anwar. For the trip, she chose an oversize button-down shirt, a white tank top, satin Miu Miu ballet flats, and *the* trend of the spring/summer 2024 runway season, a pair of white capri pants. On the accessory front, she added a burgundy satchel, a Y2K headband, and thin hoop earrings. 

It should come as no surprise that the supermodel is the first to take the formerly outdated capri-pant trend out for a test-drive. After all, she's known for her love of early-aughts styling and testing the boundaries when it comes to street style. Now that they have her stamp of approval, there's no question about it: Capri pants are back. Accept it. Scroll down to see her travel outfit and shop the trend before it blows up.

When she’s not popping into stores for inspiration (or more), she's probably running on the West Side Highway, watching a Formula 1 race, sprinting at Barry's, or sitting outside at one of SoHo's many cafés.
